Don´t ask me such questions, if I answer correctly, I will offend somebody
again and no bribe money is coming in any more...
Lets try: If the Gardiner LNB says 0.7 dB and your results where 0.8 to 0.9
dB (I assume you tested by 20°C) then I would call Gardiner as honest
manufacturer. One not to name manufacturer offered once a 0.6db LNB and we
got was been 1.1 dB. So, no need to change to Astrotel, they will not be any
better. Only cheaper. Even if you get a real 0.6dB lnb (which I am not aware
of) you would not see any difference against a 0.8db-version.
