Just to know how much trouble is on my end and what may be caused by other factors: has the satellite signal weakened a bit lately, or should I try to check for grown leaves (already done, actually, but with no apparent improvement)?

Thank you in advance for any hint.

You may need to realign your dish.

Thank you. In some ways is good news. If it were the satellite, problems would be much bigger, and not only for me. I will try to check my equipment. Now I know it depends on me I can dare to get deeper.

It turned out it was the cable. Already needing substitution since several years, it has always been a difficult task to carry out.
Its last bits of quality dropped sharply in few months, coinciding with tree leaves explosion and this added further doubts.
Now all is back, and of course not only 27W. All the Clarke belt was revived by the change.

I am now even getting at times glimpses of some UK beam channels @28E. Only SD, but still it feels like some fresh air breeze.

Hello,
Can I get this satellite in southern Tunisia with a 2.20 m dish and an inverto black ultra head with a feed horn ?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.
My Location
UK South
The fall off is rather sharp as the footprint moves south (and East) of the official chart.

Intelsat 907 at 27.5°W - LyngSat Maps

Northern Tunisia I would say yes, southern climes, something bigger.

Yes, thanks for the reply. The reception is confirmed in Northern Tunisia by a friend. Also, another friend in Gafsa ,not so far from my place,confirmed getting this satellite. So I m going to try soon I hope.

Maybe that end is closer than we think. Maybe its started wobbling as signal has dropped quite a bit here. I can see the transponder on the spectrum but no lock. Technomate box is flashing from 0db to 4.9 and off again.

Done a bit more investigation on this transponder in the last couple of days.

It turns out there is EPG data in there, it just doesn’t come up as it’s on a non-standard PID (the EIT data is on PID 58 which is also encrypted like the channels, rather than the standard DVB PID 18). It contains listings for all of the Freeview channels across all multiplexes (including the ones not replicated on 27.5°W) including the regional variations. There’s listings data for over 300 channels reported when I analyse that PID! This makes sense as each freeview multiplex on terrestrial carries all the EPG data for all channels so the guide populates quickly.

Also, the “Fat CSI” service includes bouquet data for all of the different Freeview network IDs - e.g “South Lakes”, “West Midlands - Birmingham” etc.
