    Hi with my install getting closer and closer ive been on the hunt for a duel c band lnb that covers the extended band, after a hour or so on google i found one that covers the frequencies worth looking at, i wasn't expecting it to be cheap and it isn't even going direct to the manufacture,

    Anyhow its out of my price range but it might be of use to others, i do know of one DXer who likes his toys it would be nice to see some reports from this lnb in the future.

    Decided to buy this one in the end, unsure how long shipping takes but i guess it will be here before the dish goes up.

    When I order stock from China, the slowest part of the delivery is in the EU. From dispatch at the China warehouse to arrival in EU is usually 36 Hours, then another 48 Hours to get here.

    Thank you Ian i haven't bought much from overseas before the supplier said i might have to pay some tax once it gets here, trouble with the USA is shipping prices, postage is nearly the same amount as the LNB but its something i need for your old dish and i don't mind spending on it.

    If you have online tracking from the courier, check on their site as sometimes they do display if you have duty to pay. If it's Parcelforce, then they write to you by 2nd class post asking for the duty before they will deliver. DHL and some others do it all online

    I spoke to Parcelforce today the unit is being sent to my local depot with duty to pay on it just short of £32, as soon as it arrives i can go and pick it up and pay the duty.
