Minimum Signal Strength(110/119 Sat)
I am having lots of signal losses. I have called DN to realign my dish antennas.
My actual signal strength is low ranging from 20 to 65.
Can someone advise what should be the minimum acceptable signal strength,
and what transponders should be used to monitor ???

use TP 11 & 12
I see you're in PR so it may be different depending on dish size, but normal should be 90 or above
As an example for me, on 119
Appreciate you quick response .
PR uses a bigger dish ( 48" dia.) however I would expect signal strength to be the same. Can you tell what tansponders should be used to monitor strength ??
ok...just wanted to make sure...then the signals should be the same
use transponders 11 & 12
Hiopefully someone from PR can chime in with their signal strengths (and dish size)
The greatest problem with a weak signal is not having enough headroom should the signal drop more to due to weather, etc. I would say anything less than 70 is bordering on too low.
