I just noticed that i'm not able to get the BVN/Hwazan/Macrovision mux on 113W, and Reuter seems weaker than usual. I am also no longer getting the Esperanza/Hope channels.

Has anyone else noticed the same? Other nearby satellites are coming in fine (Tigo on 117W, NHK on 103W)

Not picking them up at all on a 90cm, but it's cold out and everything has a thick coating of frost that might be messing things up at my end. Winter is coming!
:(

same thing today, getting a pixelated picture on Reuter and not even a lock on BVN. They were all good last week (not very strong but good enough to be stable outside of heavy rain/snow events. Now the sky is all clear and there was no frost.

Only thing i can think of is that we got very heavy rain on Sunday night, so was wondering if that messed up a coax. But then I would expect that the reception of other satellites would be also affected.

Eutelsat has satellites at 113W and 116.8W. (Also one around 115W, but it may be inclined, I don't remember anymore.) In Vermont, you may be either outside or on the fringe of the footprint for 113W. It has the Dutch channel that used to be on 101W and a full-time Reuters feed.

I just checked and I have no signal on BVN, and not enough signal to stay locked on Reuters (although that's normal for Reuters for me.)

I'm getting a solid lock on both of these (Reuters/BVN) in Central PA with a motorized 90cm Fortec Star/Titanium PLL-1KS and overcast skys.

this morning i was able to lock on both but not as strong as last week. But it's possible that my dish got a bit misaligned with the strong storm we had on Sunday evening. I'll check the alignment when I get a chance
