I find signal levels vary a lot. Sometimes I get lots of channels on this satellite and other times just one testcard. I guess that is what happens when you live at the edge of the footprint.

Hi Andy, yes I am sure I have had more channels from here in the past, I did try a manual scan on a few other TP and they was trying to lock, like I say conditions are not the best atm, 5W booming in.

Yes indeed. Happy to do a scan for FTV & Encrypted if you think a numbers comparison would be useful?

Mind you, I'm not getting much off 7.2W right now: A mere 29 FTA TV.

Ok: 84 TV Services in total.

TP/Network Scan, to avoid 5W.

Good stuff!

Sorry Gordon I do in the staff room / pm, but try not to on open forum out of politeness not knowing if it was ok, but now I have the go ahead :).

Ok it must have been the conditions, it was blowing a gale and raining when I scanned, unless I am now pulling fta from 5W G ?.

Just had a quick look in daytime conditions: All still locked apart from 10759 H 30000, whose Channels are pixellating.

On a good day, I can get all European transponders on Amos 2/3 but more often than not, it will be a select number of stronger channels (Xtra TV TPs are the weakest).
