Anyone else playing with knapsack on galaxy 19 ku ? It's one of the coolest things I've
Ever seen.simply tune to that channel,plug a usb thumbdrive into ur receiver,leave it
On overnight.the next day I had 3 books and 3 educational science videos downloaded.
Not sure how often they change the content.the videos were very well done and
Very educational. Give it a try.

You CAN receive C-band on a 1.2m dish!

I haven't tried it. But I have wondered. I guess for anybody without access to high-speed Internet, it could be useful. I'll take a closer look. Nice photo of your dishes. Where did you source the dishes and NPRM?

Lucky guy to get those castoff dishes. It's good to use a PLL LNB. They are worth the few extra $. If you don't want to use a motor, you can add some offset LNBs and receive additional satellites. My experience is to keep the LNBs for SES3 and SES2 in the main focus position. Then offset LNBs can receive the rest as long as they are no closer than 4 degrees azimuth which is the minimum spacing possible on Ku.

I have to say i have known about this channel for a long while, but never tuned it in long enough to have it download a book or video.

Its good to know it works.

Thanks for posting Jefforybroughton!
