It was been a real nice receiver, but today it is something from the
stone-age of satellite-tv. The tuner covers only the spectrum 950-1750
MHz and in this time many receivers worked on a OMT. This means two LNBs
(one for vertical and one for horizontal) where used and switched by 12V
or via two IF-inputs. Quite expensive this solution, but professionell.
You could a external polarizer interface, but since receivers today are
quite cheap, forget it. I use such a old receiver for constant
monitoring of a feed-signal via Intelsat.
