LNBF & Dish Size
Well the new tech got my motor working now but I can't get a lot of channels on Galaxy 25 or a few other satellites. The tech told me the problem is my dual output LNBF has a noise frequency of .5dB and should be .3dB for a 36" dish. The .5dB is for a larger dish.
He commented that Galaxy 25 has a weak signal here in south Texas and it comes in much better with a 39" dish. In fact, he says with a 39" dish a person doesn't need a motor to pick up the various satellites. Are 39" dishes a lot more expensive? He said the old Prime Star dishes work well too.
So anyway, he is ordering me a new dual output LNBF and I should be in business next week. I do get all the AMC4 channels I am aware of except KUIL FOX. The scan doesn't even pick it up. The scan picked up SafeTV but not Cornerstone. But again, I have LNBF issues.
