I have been having problems with my 105 cm Dish since the winds.Losing signal on some satellites.15 W and 22 W in particular.Even 1 W and 28 E acting up.Jumping from 0 to 90 odd percent.However the radio channel on 45 West no problem.To get that I know that the long and lat on the dish had to be spot on.
My thinking was that the wind had upset the elevation or something loose.
Today nice weather Check the Dish elevation.Decided to connect my Satlink to the LNB.
Well Slap my brassier,the f convector was loose .Tighten up, problem solved.Luckily I looked at that before I got the TM and TV onto the shed roof to check the dish settings.

Memo to self make sure that f connectors are tight.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Make sure the f...... connectors are tight.

Should be a sticky.

Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
Make sure the f...... connectors are tight.....
But, before that, that they are clean internally, and not full of water, corrosion or "other cr*p"!
