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.
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. Amdaley28.
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. amdaley28
Hello Satdude. Late last night I settled down with a list of freq’s.I used the Nokia 9600 to search with.I then entered the results into the Echostar.A big improvement.The following is a list of freq’s in addition to the ones I gave a few days ago.Some of them may be of use to you.
Freq. Pol Sym Fec Details. 11669 V 19528 5/6 Data channels of some kind 10 in all. 11698 V 3099 ¾ DVB3 W2 D9 (Arabic) 12543 H 5713 ¾ Pink,Pink+ 12651 V 9998 2/3 Romantica,Private Gold. 12662 V 4882 ½ TVSH. 12681 V 4339 ¾ Ajara. 12686 V 2999 ¾ TVR Curtural. 12698 V 4338 ½ NTV Hiyat Bih. 12711 H 3543 ¾ Vpiu Genova. 12721 V 9910 ¾ Romania package.
Still no sign of Galaxie.If you have any others to add please do & I will see if I can get them.
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.
