As promised, now Open for use.

No Transition from 1N to 2F yet, but clearly it's imminent.

Speculation to remain in the existing Hot Thread, please.

Otherwise - carry on!

Reports from the Czech Republic:

So far a lot of people with 80cm-1m dishes in Prague are reporting they are getting 0% strength/quality on 2F 11023H, with 80-85% signal quality still on 1N.

Previously, you needed a 1.8m+ to get 24/7 coverage on the UK beam of 2D.

Please post your town - I know Slovenia isnt very big but a few miles might make all the difference.

As I said, no signal at all on 1.2m Gibertini.

With 2.4m reception is possible 8-8.5dB.

I am not sure if this is the right thread to post, anyway...

Although I have none of those frequencies locked with my 1.10m dish, it is the first time I can see frequencies from this (spot) range here on the spectrum. Something it was not possible before, either with 1N or 1D. A wild estimate is that with a 2.4m dish there may be a lock here...

Here are two graphs, before (2/11/2012) and today

Yep. Right Thread.

Keeping the number of Threads down and also bearing in mind the Title has to be short and punchy.

It'll settle down soon as regulars like yourself contribute, and any strays the Mods will shift accordingly.

I am glum...

Maranello. Northern Italy. 0%/0% on CH5. "No signal" displayed both on Foxsat and Sky HD box.
I'm running 120cm Triax solid dish (tweaked for 2B, not 1N) and Black Ultra Quad.

Heavy cloud cover at the moment and looks like it's going to snow.

Anyway, at the weekend I'l get up on the roof and see what I can do with alignment... Not hopeful...

with hirschmann 120, BIU, dreambox 8k

11052 H (ITV 1 +1) appr. 6 db on early morning with artefacts, same on afternoon. from appr. 6 pm signal falls to 2,5 to 4 db and no picture anymore.

10964 H and 11126 V (C5 and C4 HD trps) early morning and afternoon appr. 2,5 - 4 db no picture, from appr. 6 pm signal falls to 2,2 bis 2,9 db.

so there is a little hope that with 150 or maximum 180 cm is anything possible, so we have to wait and see how strong or less strong the bee´s will be.
