Scanned Eutelsat 21A, 21E this morning ,picked up YEMENTODAY TV on 11600V 2170 FEC 3/4 for the 1st time,and this is on the lnb i use for Astra 3 23a offset. Might be worth a scan if youre interested, though there isnt much listed for this satellite.

Is that without moving the 23.5E lnb? I shall have a look for that one as Eutel 21B will be slotting here in the next few days.

Thats pretty good going

Nothing here yet - I can see a slight change on the signal bars on 11600V on the 23.5E lnb as I move it around. It might just be a fraction too weak to lock here, its reasonably overcast here atm.

However I shall have my mug of tea and go and have another look :D

Clear sky here but there's clouds on the horizon now. Sorry for the slow replies-i'm messing about with the tripod dish in the back garden. I cant get any signal on the other transponders, this morning i could get Al Falestinia on 10978V 2170 but i'm not getting anything now.

No luck here - and its clouded right over now, and looks like rain. I'll have another go when the skies are clearer :)

Cloudy. And snow all around.

Never have received that one even though 11530 is normally great.

Good results Ratchet! At what level your receiver starts to show stable picture? In case of dreambox it is about 29%.

It depends on the transmission standard, modulation and FEC in use. A standard DVB-S signal with 3/4 FEC will lock at 45% but for a higher FEC like 7/8 it takes 55% for a stable lock. The Al-huja signal in the 3rd screenshot for example was breaking up at 52%. I've had the receiver lock as low as 30% on a signal with1/2 FEC.

This is what I am getting on the F15 receiver with dB readings.

10972 V 4.7dB
10978 V 9.4
10989 H 6.3
11004 H 7.8
11487 V 6.5
11506 H 5.7
11524 V 5.7
11527 V 5.3
11530 V 9.4
11563 H 6.3
11601 V 9.4
11655 V 9.1

That gives me 13 channels on the 12 tp's with two channels on 11563. The channel names are different to Lyngsat in some cases e.g. Baghdad on 10972 scans as Service 2, Al Huja on 10989 scans as Ericsson Service. Signals go up and down but usually Yemen Today on 11601 is the strongest. Last night 10978 got very strong over 11 dB.

It will be interesting to see what happens when 21B becomes active.

Massive increase in signal levels this morning, looks like 21B might be active already.
