Re: S band for 6 bucks...



Hi Drew:

You have nothing to apologize for.  I have never seen a C-band LNB with 
an IF anywhere near 121 to 307 MHz.  With that IF, I assumed that they 
were S-band as well.  I am going to try to get some details about the 
units before I decide whether or not to keep them.

73,

Woody
