I can see a weak carrier on 11.161V (28.2) Does somebody see it as well? I cannot get a lock.

Just seen this post and checked, nothing here in the UK unless the carrier has now been dropped?

yes, there is still a very weak signal on 11.161 but now there is a stronger wider one on 11.008V - I cannot get a lock on that one either.

11.008V used to be a 32APSK modulated data carrier, there used to be another on 1N in the C band too but not sure where that disappeared to (possibly Astra 2A now?). How much lower in level are these carriers compared to what you get off the 2E and 2F UK spot TP's at your location?

yesterday in the evening the signal was gone again. Something is going on.... The level was about 1.5dB lower than the other 2F spot transponders. The signal was clearly there and even the constellation was recognizable, but the tuner didn't lock. Probably too low SNR for blindscan, the TBS5925 has a lower threshold if you know the symbol rate.
