How To Install C-band LNB On A Satellite Dish Antenna by SatGist: 1:50am On Nov 09, 2019
Hi guys, I’m gonna teach you DIY installation guide for C-band Ground and Polar mounted dish. In this article, I will teach both the satellite tv installer or layman on how to install C-band ground and polar mounted dish. Also get you familiar with satellite C-band dish accessories and where you can purchase them.

There are two ways you can install C-band which includes:

1. Ground Mounted
2 .Polar Mounted

Site Survey

For any good C-band dish installation, Site survey is the first step because it will ensure the proper operation of the C-band satellite system. A good site survey must consider the following conditions which includes:

There must not be unobstructed materials to the satellite position
Check the satellite you wish to install from your site if it is available by using compass settings to select the nearest location and azimuth.
Will seasonal foliage cause the problem?
Are there sources of terrestrial interference that needs to be considered?
Is the surroundings that the dish need to be anchored in solid?

Try to test the LNB, connect the LNB to the receiver or satellite meter without dish. If the LNB detect signal strength bar on the screen then the LNB is in good condition otherwise replace the LNB with good one.

Also make sure there’s no transmissions between 3.7 to 4.2 GHz frequency band, which may cause problem during the C-band dish installation. Avoid mounting dish close to mobile network tower as it causes interference in most case.

Mounting The C-band Dish Pole

A properly installed dish requires a well concrete surface and anchored solid base. It is good to fill the pole surroundings with concrete to ensure solid base. This will stiffen and strength the base for accurate reception of both C-band and KU band signals. While Mount the pole inside the ground, you need to do the following tips such as:

Use braces welded or drilled through the pole to prevent turning in the concrete while the C-band dish is under the load
Verify whether the pole is straight and accurate plumb in three sides
Wait for at least 20-24 hours for the concrete to harden before mounting the dish on the pole
Make another concrete with four edges or slap on the surface

It is good to use pure cement if you are in a region where storms is common, and if you’re in harden surface area, one bag of cement is okay or call bricklayer for an assistance.
