Satellite LNB are quite cheap and easy to get devices. There are different models for different bands (C, Ku, and Ka) with different characteristics like SNR, noise figure, etc. Typically those devices are used with TV Set-top boxes. More interesting is that LNB can be easily connected to an SDR receiver. LNB is a simple frequency down-converter with an output…
Reworking linear polarization satellite LNB into a circular polarized
In this article, I want to discuss different types of satellite LNB, polarization, and depolarization of waves. Also, I’ll show how to rework the LNB. Also, we will discuss a theory to figure out why this rework is working. The primary topic here is Ku-band LNB, but all this also works for the Ka-band and C-band.
