    AMC9 is what you want for RTN, per our previous conversation. Still not sure about the minimum dish size requirement for your location. I need to verify the quality numbers were I am, using a SuperDish. Too many of which that I'm going to start pushing them on friends who only see our local DTV HD eight channels. Setting one up now with the modified feed for 110, 119, 123, maybe 127 too - if the new transponder ramps-up a few watts. He has a DN sub and OTA DTV, but it's not enough. :)

    11982H should be no problem on a SuperDish. I'm getting 95% quality with a .9 meter dish on a rough fix. Try locking on that transponder, the strongest. I'm sure I could get it rock solid on even an 18".

    some of the transponders on 101W you can lock with a smaller dish
    3ABN & Hope Rtpi
    LLBN

    ***[Iceberg: Speaking of signals... I recently sent you a PM about the SuperDish. I still hoard a ton of stuff with more coming in, that I don't really need. Just had a package including a SuperD, drop shipped near Dallas TX, by a trucker friend of mine.]

    Just a quick setup and test for AMC4 on the SuperDish. Definitely not a clear shot to the sky. Also, the feed was modified; the Ku LNBF is offset. The readings below are for the strongest transponders, and would probably increase by at least 25% if the dish wasn't blocked by the deck railing and other obstacles.

    3ABN 84% Quality
    GCN 40%
    Hope Ch 55%
    CGN TV 40%
