Satellite Dish

Hi EVERYBODY
Could anybody enlighten me if possible how difficult it is to install a quad LNB on my satellite dish.
I have two dishes, one for Astra (sky installed) and another for
European satellite service (Hotbird & Eutelsat)(13 % 19 degrees)
Reason for doing this I am not allowed to install a motorised
dish on my living accomodation.
AWAITING A REPLY THANKING YOU KINDLY

Regards BUMBLEBEE57

Just replace the existing LNB. Look out for the extra weight of cables and LNB which can bend the dish arm slightly. Sometimes this "sags" gradually over a number of days or weeks.

In addition make sure that the mounting for the LNB is compatible with the dish.
(If I was to be pedantic I would say LNBF where F stands for feedhorn, as you almost certainly want one with the integrated horn ; an LNB [no F] would have a C120 flange to take a separate feedhorn).
