    Booming here.
    Could be weather related.

    I got it back but was no signal last night and in the wee hours of this morning.
    I did scan the wildfeed of storm damage but nothing else at the time.Much better now.

    I lost it the night before but that was heavy-rain related here, as that storm system moved across the south.

    I lost it before the rain hit but the other religious tp was coming in fine.
    A friend on the west coast lost it also at the same time.

    I just heard the winds last night were 78mph,I think that is hurricane speed.
    That is the most mph my dishes have survived so far.

    83% quality but for some reason the Pansat 9200 refuses to scan these back in after deleting them.
    (deleted a bunch of old stuff & re-scanned on some sats, to clean up the channel list of old feed locations, etc)
    Has something changed with this signal?
    Manual PID scan didn't work either....:confused:
    Edit: 3rd time's the charm I guess. This last blind scan got 'em!

    At times this last week I've had problems with those too, during the day when its just cloudy and no rain they will begin to break up some. I suspect they may be varying the power levels , at times. In the evening they work as usual. A few times I've looked though, and found nothing at all on them-just black screen.

    Found out what part of my problem was..... for some strange reason my LNBF on my 72w dish was skewed the right amount, but in the wrong direction! :facepalm
    Far as I can tell, it's been that way for a while. :facepalm
