A search on eBay shows others sellers have the Octagon Optima Twin LNB at about £19 inc. post. You have to squint at the photos to make sure it is the right model! Mine is due to arrive tomorrow.
I currently use a rather unstable Lidl LNB to a funcube Pro+ dongle on 618MHz with fair results. The PLL LNB should be much better but ideally needs a good external 27 MHz source, preferably with 10MHz reference so am looking for ideas on that.

I was thinking about this and then remembered the TV Sticks or Funcube Dongles all cover the frequency range that 10.368 Emerges at. So, rather than make changes to use a 432MHz IF, use a cheap TV stick. It should make a nice 10GHz band monitor. I can see several reverse beacon applications with just the LNB, no dish at a good site.
