Yes, if you want to receive only C band a good mesh dish is ok. Not the same for Ku band.

A 3m dish should have you covered depending on your location. Also, as posted earlier, mesh is by far superior to a solid for c band and the larger the holes in the mesh the better.

Mesh not superior to solid dish for C band

Have tested both and am testing right now, mesh is by far superior to solid for c band only, not ku.

For ku band the mesh is not better than solid but a mesh dish with 3m not offset have less signal than a 1.8m offset metal solid dish

I have never tested a 1.8m offset dish but I have tested 1.8 and am testing 2.4 prime focus solid-mesh is by far superior on my arc.

A prime dish have less signal than offset one?

I believe this thread is a little bit confused.... I try to explain. A mesh dish is never (NEVER!) better than a solid one. A solid dish is always the best choice. Mesh dishes were built in the past (not sure now) due to better response to high speed winds, but they suffer of important signal loss compared to solid dishes. In C band the loss is limited and it become a good solution, in Ku band the loss is around 20-30% (more with many poor dishes). Also, the advantages in high speed wind conditions are not so real, and this is the reason because many manufacturers dropped mesh dishes from many years. So, if you need only C band you can choose a good mesh dish, if you want Ku band a good solid one is needed. Also, offset dishes are not better than prime focus. This is true only for little size (until 1.5m, maybe 1.8m). If you have the chance, install a good 3m solid dish for C and Ku band and you will not regret.

10ft mesh dish works well for me but real tricky for Ku band

I have a 12 footer unimesh works well with cband but you are right. Does not do well with ku. In western hemisphere there is not much anyways. Most is still on cband

you may also attach a special c band lnb barrel to your lnb and do away with the dialectric plate as they take roughly around a 2 to 3 db loss on certain circular signals.

I don't know how it is in your region/country, but here in Europe it's hard or impossible to find mesh dishes. Import from China is possible, but I have doubts about the quality.

I recently found a 2nd hand mesh dish, but I didn't install it yet.

I get C-Band from 40E, 20E, 10E, 5E, 5W & 11W on my Technomate TM7102 (Quite old receiver)

So I dont know why you think most C-Band channels are MPEG4, sure most are DVB-S2 these days, but the same applies to Ku-Band.

So no SPECIAL/DIFFERENT receiver required for C-Band at all.

Im near to buy a 1,8 m dish which could be the best lnb if its possible twin band c/ku

Thanks

I give you a free advice :thum:

do not buy twin band c/ku (combo)
because you waste the money/time/angry
( yo te digo que no vale/ no merece la pena )

You will need a 10 foot if you want to pick up DVB-S2 feeds a 1.8 will not cut it.

Maybe feeds in c band is imposdible in my location south of spain but i m not interested in feeds for me are ok feeds in ku band

If with 1.5m is enough for regular c band and free uk in 28,2 also would be ok.

I Will get one 1.5m to test.
