    Keep loosing channels on 118

    I know they might seem like a long shot but may be worth a shot... 1. Change your receivers so they do NOT use Port 1 on the DPP44. 2. Power and grounding: - Recheck the grounding for each dish and receiver - Use a small UPS (Belkin 350 or so) at the DPP44 and one of the receivers

    Wing Dish 1000 w/I-adapter & DP single - Would this work?

    If results with 1000 dish are not satisfactory, you can use a 24" round. It has yielded excellent results for me. Google '24" antenna "D" type'. Good luck.

    Sat 129 help

    24" From SC at 129W - Good Results slicked, Elevation for 129 is significantly lower than 110 and 119, which may play a role especially if ou have large tree branches in the line of site vicinity. 129W's weaker TPs are probably compounding the problem. I find it unlikely that a 1000.2...

    Living in the northwest & 61.5

    Montana is fringe to deep fringe for 61W. You will most likely need a larger dish to receive 61W. Your best bet is to find someone close to your location pointing to 61W and get real-life advise on what will be needed to receive 61W reliably. If I were to take a stab at it, I'd have to...

    Low signal from 110 sat

    Check your mounting pole for plumb on BOTH N/S and W/E axis, verify skew and elevation per tables provided and re-peak. I use TP2/12239MHz for first pass peak, then find the lowest signal TP on 119 and second pass peak. IMO, when you have your hardware plumb and the skew/elevation per tables...

    Dish 1000 + switch options

    I'd strongly recommend the DPP44 due to power concerns and flexibility. if you intend to distribute the signal to more than 1 receiver, the DPP44 is the way to go. Worth every penny. For 1 receiver, you could alternatively use PASSIVE (non-powered) 4x1 diseqc and 22KHz switches if your...

    Dp 44 switch

    What about 119W??? 3ABN is present on 61W and 129W. Typically you get 61W or 129W, especially if you need 118W in addition to 110/119. Otherwise it'd be a 5 orbital config...

    Dish 1000 and 118

    118W uses circular polarity, how can you use a SuperDish LNB which is linear to pick up circular polarity signals efficiently? Also, you will need a larger reflector for 118W. Your best bet is to go with a D1000+.
