    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 ???

    Thx

    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
    11-112
    12-106

    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 ??

    Thx

    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.
