Re: dis-assembling an octogon lnb

Hi Richard the single OSLO version I just took apart required the white plastic cover removing. I did this by prising the horn cover forward and gently splitting the rearcover down the seam. You are then faced with a cast ali (?) body with a flat lid held by 3 small bolts and sealed with a red silicone. The bolts have what looks like a hex head, but it is in fact a slightly star-shaped ''secutity'' bolt. I found the smallest tool in the Draper SEC33 security socket set fits them nicely. I scraped the sealant clear with a craft knife. but dont think this is necessary. Removing the lid with the craft knife (take it carefully !!) exposes the pcb with a 25MHz surface mount crystal. That is as far as I got!

Hi
I've now got one of these,, and a quick look shows 6 little holes
around the F type connectors.
Are there tiny screws at the bottom of those holes or do the covers
just clip together, and pressure needs putting on the joins to pop
apart ?
