I have Digitalb Premium channels on 16E setup today and the signal strength is around 72%. The picture is breaking up however. Some other channels are fine with 72%. I'm going to need better dish alignment or a bigger dish if these channels will be watchable?

You mean of course 16 East. ;)

Some transponders are not as strong as others, I would have thought that your 1m Lenson Heath would have been big enough, so perhaps just a little tweaking may make the difference. :)

I've tried fine tuning east/west and can't get any more strength. I'll have to revisit the dish, maybe it has slipped out of plane.

went into the garden this morning to align a new 88cm triax to the mbc channels using a tech 1500+, 0.2 titanium got a tops of 60% thats good. ( mind it took some time to get it done properley, really awkward)


then i had a look at my other dish on 16e 11449 h, i tried out 7 lnbs the results for all of them based on the above freguency


sharp 0.3 84%
eurostar 0.5 84% ( 5yrs old )
mti 0.2 83%
fortec star 0.3 76%
invacom 0.3 75%
lemon 0.2 73 to 74%
inverto silver tech 72%


my location is hartlepool in the north east and to get things done i take a small television in to the garden and its right next to the dish 2ft off the ground i then sit on the other side of the dish on a stool. Another piont i would like to make, i also tested them indoors in my spare bedroom using a 1.1 triax behind double glazed windows and only 2 of them were useful , tops was the titanuim 0.2, it was about 3% better than the sharp 0.3 the others were poor. To get the signal behind the window is possible only if the dish is bigger enough

I also have some problems getting good signal with my Toroidal T90 and the Wide beam.

I get about 85% quality and BER pending from 0-100

After looking at Eutelsat and the beam coverage it should be way above 50dBW.

Something is fishy here? is the transponders weaker than the footprint says?

very good signal,with fibo 90 cm,here in austria,a normal 90 cm dish,is not enough,when it its raining!
the reason,that digialb signal is lower is,that this transponder,sending in sharing halftransponder,with other channels,when you look @ lyngsat

all,other transponders,on this satelite,using the full bandswitch
