Morning Guys and Girls.
On Friday evening I finally reached one of my long term goals with the KTI.

At aprox 8pm at Friday night,I finally got my first C-band reception off Intel 10 @ 68.5deg.
The signal; was low ,and the Image broke up allot ,but it was there.I spent a few more hours with the alignment of the dish, and some tweaking of the LNB.
The signal improved somewhat, but not enough to my liking. Yesterday I got on the roof again, and gave it another go (This time sober!!)
I changed out the MTI Lnb for my cheaper, newer Gospell, and the signal improvement was a good 4% more on the Metabox.
(MTI 25k vs Gospell 15k noise)
I must say : this is one hell of a finicky Satellite! If the dish moves less than 1/16th ,the signal drops enough to loose the picture.So I took some rope,and strapped this dish to the roof in 2 places.Its a bit better now.
I hope to finally receive the 46 channels which are available on it ,and not the 15 that I currently have after 6 hours of tweaking!
Will post some pics later on tonight.

Hi!
in the meantime,the indian ujala tv channel is complitly gone,with my 2,40 m dish,reports from germany wiht 3,66 m kti dish,can still receive it!
same now on the indian dordarshan channels,one month ago a can watch it in the night,on day time signal is much lower,duriing sunshine,and blue sky,but at the moment,now dordashans here,the wekest of all are the feedtransponder it self,in kenya,also low singal:)?

on this freqencys?
when this satelite will be repaced?
hope then much stronger,on multichoice i have signal,on all transponders only the 3836 i cant reveive 3863 is working,if i look to the freqency lists on lingsat i noticed,that nhk for e.g,using the nearly the same freqency,on the other polarity,this is the main reason that most of the channels are so weak,because the stronger ones,on the other polarty,take most of the signal..
where i can get gospel lnbs,never have any,are they perform good?
at the moment i used a mti 15 kelvin from taiwan ,gospel also comes from taiwan?
you have also signal difrence,in kenia during day/night time?
