We have an LNB that appears to have a very stable crystal. In Chicago over the past month, it’s been starting up with an offset of less than 1 kHz. The weather has not been too extreme here, so I don’t have a great baseline for testing. I’m guessing that spring is not going to be terribly conducive to testing wide temperature swings and startup offset of the LNB. That being said, there is no reason to wait for the ideal time.
If you have your receiver online, I’m happy to send you a free LNB–with the hope that you will share your results with the forum. We are interested in seeing how stable the offset is at startup across a range of temperatures.
Shipping is free. Just email your order number to [email protected] with the subject “LNB Testing”. The LNB will go to the address on file. When you swap out your LNB, you’ll need to switch it in the Tuner App and restart.
