Because this is on Eutelsat 7 with a much smaller footprint than Nilesat. Check your dish to get the best out of it - try a better LNB - or a bigger dish.

Thanks Trigger, but I have overkill on the dish 1.35M and a 0.1 db lnb Signal strength and quality are 100+% Cleaned card and changed LNB.
Abu dhabi Sports and all other al Jazeera sports HD1 - HD5 excellent. Only the 12476.00 frequency a problem. dropped an e-mail to Al Jazeera to see if they are having teething problems.

12475 is close to the dect interference problem frequency especially noted around 12480.

Any wayward L-band transmissions from new dect equipment?

12480 MHz (Nominal) is a prime DECT Phone target >> DECT uses around 1880 MHz.

The TP at 12476 downshifts by 10600 to an L Band (On the cable from LNB to Receiver) frequency of 1876 MHz ........................ So check your cabling for integrity ie Damage, Kinks, Joints (especially Wallplates) and relocate any DECT phone Base/Handsets.

Analoguesat - I have a DECT phone next to the satellite box. Could this cause a problem. Shifting it right now.

It's the proximity to cable/connections that's important: The box itself is a Faraday Cage and is virtually bulletproof.

Emissions from DECT kit (etc.) exploit weaknesses in screening (ie Lack of Immunity).

As the power decreases with the square of the distance, even moving it 2 or 3 metres often causes the interference to drop sufficiently to eradicate the problem
