Signal Intensity changes in Galaxy 3c (95W) ?
I have been exploring C band for just a few weeks. I have located SatMex5, SatMex6, SES1, Galaxy 16 and Galaxy 3C using my 6ft dish, 1LNBF and a MicroHD Receiver. I´m not using a motor, so I move manually the dish for changing from one satellite to another. Last week I installed a second LNBF and I was able to see several days simultaneosly some channels from Galaxy 16, and CBS & Univisión from Galaxy 3C.
The thing is that after 2 days with furious windows, the antenna was moved and I lost signal from both satellites. So, I went to aim again my dish and got the Galaxy 16 signal in minutes. The problem is that I cannot find any signal for Galaxy 3C. Using the same LNBF (the one centered), I can tune channels from Galaxy16, SES1, Satmex6 and Satmex5, but nothing from Galaxy C3. I spend much time looking for this signal (moving dish east-west, upper and lower, rotating skew) and I can't get neither a 10 percent of quality signal from Galaxy C3.
Last week I located Galaxy C3 in a fast way, barely rotating the dish to East direction from Galaxy 16 location.
Did Galaxy 3C signals loose power? Do you receive it with the same intensity and quality than 2 weeks ago?
