    To answer this question we really need to know more about your LNB and dish type.

    An offset dish requires a different type of feedhorn to a prime focus one - the latter normally using a scalar horn (like a mini flan dish with concentric rings).
    Then there's the question of whether the LNB you have is a standard C120 flange type or something different.
    Finally , horns work well over a small range of F/D ratios so the f/d ratio of the dish comes into play as does any added polariser.
    Satcure's website may well have some of the answers.

    Chris Muriel (currently in Gdansk and will be working in a different Polish city each day, so someone else may have to answer once you supply the extra info).
