    Spot Beam Question

    I am in southeast Iowa and I am well in the green line that shows on the map and I do get a signal strength of 61/62 on transponder 21 which is the one the STL locals are on. I am just wondering if I am looking at the right numbers.

    Spot Beam Question

    So if I get a good signal with the spot locked I am okay. If I have a good signal on transponder 21 and not locked am I getting a signal from another sat or transponder?

    Spot Beam Question

    I asked this question in another thread last week but never received a reply so I will try here. What does the green line on the spot beam maps mean? This is not the inner line(circle) but the outer circle. Specifically I am looking at Sat 61.5 Transponder 21 and Spot 61 for St. Louis locals. I...

    St. Louis HD Locals

    Yes it is. That is why I am getting the SD locals from STL. I do get the guide for all of the STL HD locals but when I go to those the receiver goes to the SD channels. It does take a while to lock on to the spotbeam for the HD locals but I am getting a signal strength over 50 on transponder...

    St. Louis HD Locals

    I am getting a signal strength(locked on 61.5) of 52 on Transponder 21 on satellite 61.5. According to the list this is the transponder that the St. Louis HD locals are on and on spotbeam 61 which I am locked on. When I check the signal strength on Transponder 21 it does take a few minutes to...

    Multi Sports add on

    Iowa is claimed by six major league baseball teams. If you have the sports pak then you would get the Cubs, White Sox, Brewers, Twins, Cardinals and the Royals. It only makes sense to MLB as none of the teams are close and require a major road trip to see any of the games. This is wonderful for...

    Looking for Installer in Quad Cities, Ia.

    Thank you for your quick reply. I have not ordered the system as I wanted to be sure that someone was available for the install. I used my former Bell wiring for another sat system so he would have to start from square one. Do you have the smaller dish or the larger one? Please let me know how...

    61.5 Wing Dish

    Current setup is a Western Arc dish with a 61.5 wing dish attached. Everything else works fine except for the wobble on the one transponder. I was hoping a larger dish would take care of the reception problem.

    61.5 Wing Dish

    Can I use a KTI 75 cm Antenna(Dish) for a 61.5 wing dish? The LNB is a CM2500 and it says it is compatible with Directv but it doesn't state that it would work with a dish system. I want to improve the signal on 61.5 and currently have a regular size dish on the wing hooked up to a Western Arc...

    I have a wing 61.5 dish attached to a Dpp44 with a 1000+dish getting 110,119, and 118. Can I just reattach my 129 to the Dpp44 on Port 4 by removing the 118 wire and put the 129 wire in the same port?
