Default Old Dish / New LNB compatibility ?

As a result of another thread I need to change the 16 year old LNB. The dish is solid no corrosion, just a bit of paint flaking. Does anyone know if a Wide-band LNB is available for me to fit to the old dish. We are in zone 1 (Hull area).

TIA John.

No, there have been at least two variations on dish design since yours. The WB LNB comes with a bracket which snaps over the outside of the boom.

If you have any trouble, I can supply a new dish with LNB.

Thank you for your kind offer, but I will pass a local satellite trade store on Monday. I will decline this time.

Thanks again, John.
