    BEV in Florida

    Last winter I used StarChoice while wintering near Tampa, FL. This coming winter I hope to return to BEV, as I understand more TP's are now reaching mid Florida. Am I correct or is the service still minimal for that area? Any help much appreciated....Florida SnowBirdy

    Can someone confirm that the US networks[ Boston] are now available on N3 for the southern US. I understand that TSN is now available and hoping more channels are becoming available for the southern fringe of the foot print. THANKS

    *Choice..losing channels

    No HD receivers, connect direct with the dish..no switches. I think my problem is perhaps more wind related. Observing the dish in gusty winds, the dish shakes a little, maybe just enough to mess up the reception. I'm going to relocate the dish to a more stable fixture. Re the LNBF and the 4...

    *Choice..losing channels

    I'm thinking of repeaking the dish to see what happens. I'm losing the US networks, most of CBC and CTV. Get TSN solid and a few others OK with no problems. I have the 75e dish. Sunny days and I no problems, not rain fade. Signal on average runs around 70%...thanks.

    Transponders

    Thanks iceberg..I am well in the footprint..location N.S. Those TP's 9,11,25 etc are on the old DirectTv and give me the greatest signal. I've tried a bigger dish (24") with little improvement, so the tree limb out front has to go I quess to get a big jump in signal strength. BEV book says to...
