I will comment on this as there are many factors involved in releasing this information and ill try to explain the reasoning behind them.
The LNB was designed to be as accurate as we could make it at the time of manufacture to the budget we were given. After manufacture each LNB is tested 100% over temperature and then finally setup and referenced to a GPS locked RF test Rack, internal algorithms work continuously to help compensate for long and short term drift but unfortunately like any reference built to a cost, it WILL drift very slowly over time, temperature and use, hence the reason we built in the feature to move the LO on a live basis (or to built a crude GPS Frequency locked loop). It can also store and recall one USER offset in NVM and also retain the factory CAL for backup purposes. All of the LNB’s were built at the same time in 2019
Some of the issues of releasing the protocol and more information on how it all works are IP related, in addition there is a possibility of overwriting the factory calibration if you do manage to work out the sequence to unlock the CAL location so there are some associated risks. Finally there is always a cost associated with design and development of such a product and although Syed footed this for the initial development of the LNB and I can tell you its not cheap or easy to develop such a product. We as the designers/manufacturer also invested time and money to include the ability for the LO to be adjusted live and hoped it would help to recoup money invested developing the LNB. It took ALOT of persuading by Syed for us to develop the product and is a reason why this is such a unique product.
The LNB should, in theory, have the ability to tune in approx 200Hz steps (each unit has a unique profile) @ Ku LO and then remain within the temperature tolerances of the internal TCXO. At the time we did offer to manufacture a programmer and Gui but it required even more investment from Syed but we took the risk and developed a prototype but it was never commercialised. To ask us to release this for free is a difficult decision for us to make, (speaking as the manufacturer and developer), as we have to try to recoup the investment…
It is under discussion as I feel (as the designer) it will show the true potential of the product.
