    Dual LNB Power Inserter
    This power inserter is designed to supply constant DC voltage to C/Ku or DSS Satellite LNB's, microwave down-converters and in-line amplifiers. When using longer cable runs voltages will drop on the cable, mutiswitch and the LNB causing them to not function properly. The power inserter extends the range of cable runs by providing power for both polarities of the LNB's. Specifications: *Input Voltage: 120VAC 60Hz 35W *Operating Frequency: 400-2150MHz *Output Voltage: Selection Switch 13-14/17-18 or 17-18/17-18 VDC 600mA *Insertion Loss 2dB ±1dB *Isolation 65dB *Power adaptor included.

    In the previous post it was a long cable
    Run but interesting reading considered
    In line amplifier increases the signal
    By 20db so it must prevent a reduction
    In power to the l.n.b

    Out having a wee test on a lovely evening


    So what am I doing .....


    I have left the sat dish where it is and testing if the h2s will power the motor and lnb
    And so far is all good
    Just doing a automatic scan on different lnbs that I have

    Red rocket lnb - big thumbs up channels are scan. Tested on 19
    Big red lnb - works just the same as the rocket. Tested on 13. The motor never never for some reason


    Great news. I happy with that
    So there is no reason why I can pick something up

    Just need to line everything up right

    I have some what moved on today

    I got a pole today

    I was just passing a place in Belfast and called to see if they had and cheap spares gong for free, yea they had
    Got a 4 foot job for free happy enough with that

    So most of to day has been messing about in the sun with my dish


    I did have 19 23 and 28
    Working great

    Then I lost it all. So I have wired up now to my main box in the living room
    And I don’t think the h7 is moving the dish

    So brought in my h2s power supply for it
    See how it goes

    Lost the setup something when clearing up for the night

    not even sure she is moving the dish, may not have my settings right on the h7
    some thing to work at

    so dont even have 28 at the min

    H7 is now moving the dish

    Also noticed my pole isn’t total straight


    Right postitioner setup
    What can I do with this. How does it work
    In fine movements I can move the sat to make the signal better
    But no idea what it is doing or does it effect the main setup
