    hmm condoms for lnbs as i suppose if you are at the edge of reception beam they can add a better picture and higher signal,most of us are possibly close enough and get 92-96% signal.

    to be honest it helps with the weaker satellites ie 7w etc

    Hi Parkipie nice to see you here welcome to the forum :),

    It looks well made I know what you mean with 7w can be tricky in the day time.

    that makes a change as many newbies are only on 28.2 so can now see why you want to improve it.
    oops yes welcome aboard.

    Ive read good reports about them in the past I know you like chasing the hard to get I think it will certainly help with the weak signals .

    just an update everyone !!!
    the lnb cover has worked a treat !!

    we had some snow last night here in Sheffield south yorkshire so I decided to check the signal while it was snowing on 7w on my triax 1.1m dish and it kept the signal level so I checked my other dish (gibertini 1.2m)which hasn't got a cover on it and the signal was up and down when it was snowing !!
