Hello Satdude.
Which dish can you get it on & what equipment have you connected,LNB etc.
I use an Echostar wide band lnb.

Hi m8. 1.2cm dish with a .6db Cambridge LNB on a Manhattan
receiver. Spot on alignment. If you get a good meter you can adjust the polarization ie vertical and horizontal, this makes a big difference on weak signals where a field strength meter is useless. Trees and buildings have a huge effect on signal.

Good luck m8, hope this helps. Regards SATDUDE. :D

Hello Satdude.
I had a check when I came in this evening & here are my results for 16east.
I can get the following.
10956H,10963H,10968H,11011,11022,11043H,11054V,11084H,11126V,11130V,11168H,11171H,11182H,11190H,11283H,11304V,11689V.I tried the Galaxie freq but the signal bar is struggling from 10% to 35% up & down.
I cannot receive anything on the transponders after 11689V.
It can’t be the LNB, because I have no problem getting any of the High band transponders on any of the other Sats.I don’t think that it’s the dish either as I can get good signals from Turk42east through to Pas9 @58west.
I looked ay Satco DX and the only thing I can see is that the freq’s I can’t get are all channels numbered F1 to F7.
Regards.

Yea ok m8 thats going to take me awhile to figure out. Try taking the sybol rate up or down, ie 50 or 100, see if the signal improves.

Hi satdude.
I will try & drop the sym rate also I will see if I can get it on my Nokia 9600.I dont think I will have much success as the Nokia is run off the echostar & shares the same lnb.
Regards.

Hi m8 could you do a test for me:

FRQ:12520 V 16.0East
tp F2 Feratel Wetterstation DVB 2170 - 3/4

Let me know if you pick it up. Try very early in the mornings some signals are stronger then. (long story)

Regards SATDUDE. :D

Ok m8 I can get that here ok its a bit weak thats why I ask you to check it. So I think your problem may lay with alignment, because 16.0 East is a little on the weak side. If there are no trees or buildings in sight of the satellite im afraid the only thing is to tweak the dish ie a meter which not only measures field strength, but also you can tweak the lnb ie polarization vertical and horizontal.

Hope you get it sorted m8. Regards SATDUDE. :D

Hi Satdude.
I will check it when I get a chance.Also perhaps I am a little too far south which mean that I cant get the weak channels..Just a thought.
Regards.
