German term or phrase: 1. Sat-ZF
"LNB /LNC
Low Noise Blockconverter / Low Noise Converter (Speisesystem). Setzt die Downlink Satellitenfrequenzen in die 1.Sat-ZF um. Empfangsteil an oder in der Satellitenantenne, der die hohen Frequenzen der Satelliten empfängt, verstärkt und in die niedrigere Zwischenfrequenz umwandelt."

"ZF
Satelliten-Zwischenfrequenz = Ausgangsfrequenzbereich des LNC’s, z.B. 950 bis 2050 MHz. Entsteht durch Mischung der Satellitenempfangsfrequenz mit der Oszillatorfrequenz (L.O.F.)."

And LOF = Lokale Oszillatorfrequenz, but it´s all too much for me, I´m out of my depth with frequencies above 192 kHz. Can anyone help me figure out how to translate "1. Sat-ZF" here, please?

Oh, it´s from the Glossary of a Bedienungsanleitung for a set-top box that does everything you could possible want with every type of television there is.

Explanation:
The 2,150 Satellite Tuner
A measuring instrument must have a satellite tuner capable of accommodating up to 2,150 Mhz, in order to be able to measure the video carrier for QPSK transmissions, as digital transmissions are relayed in the so-called high band. The high band downlink frequency range roughly covers 12.5 - 12.75 GHz. Universal LNB's with an oscillator frequency of 10.6 GHz are used for this frequency range. This means that the frequency range of the first satellite intermediate frequency is 1,900 - 2,150 MHz.


Applications
The CTMS-16RK permits satellite intermediate frequency (IF) distribution of 950 – 2150 MHz from the outputs of a dual LNB to up to 16 satellite receivers. The CTMS-16RK is an excellent choice for cost effective SMATV installation, operation, and maintenance.
