You donīt have to change a lot, since you got allready some kind of Corotor
for c- and ku band. There are still some "old" LNBs on the market, switching
with 0/12 volts between 11 and 12 GHz. Only the display of the IF (in the
Telecom-band) is not correct. Also you could use one OMT with an additional
Telecom-LNB and external switch. In both cases no freqency shifter is involved.
