    Is 99W Galaxy 16 up and running?

    I tried this and it made so difference. Finally I moved the dish with the actuator until I was somewhere between 97 and 101 (not showing any signal from either that is) and in spite of not showing a lock on 99, I blinded scanned it anyway. Mysteriously, I got the channels from 99. I still don't...

    10ft BUD - Removal by Myself - Can it Be Done

    If power is available to ya, grind the bolt or nuts off. Alternatively, if you can get a pair of vice grips on either the bolt head or nut, then jam or bind the grips with something (wire) and wrench on the other. Good luck.
