I live in ohio, trying to get amc9 transponder 11735 h 4444. I have a strong signal on 12140 and 12160, but 0 from 11735. I have a 36 inch dish, coolsat 7100 reciever with a h-h rotor. I can hit all the satellites east and west of true south. I have quality of 70% on 12140 and 12160 83w, is there something I'm doing wrong , or need to recieve 11735? Thanks for any reply.

When I went looking for RTV on AMC9 I first tuned in to t.p. 11775. It’s a strong test pattern and news feed. Once I had AMC9 tuned in the best I could I switched the t.p. to
11735 moved my dish a 1/16 at a time until I found it.
It’s like it’s not exactly on that quadrants. Like it’s of just a hair. Using a 36’’ fortec dish and a viewsat receiver.
Works for me.


Tp 11775 4232 H 5/6 test pattern

I don't have the same receiver to compare to, but I think you should have a higher Q reading than 70 on the Data TPs.
If you can, take the receiver and TV to the Dish, drive it to 83 west, and just put pressure on the Dish: Up, Down, Left, and Right - see if signal improves.

I think Lak7 is right. I do not have a 7100 but on my coolsat 5000 the data tp's are in the 90's. I use 11736 h 4440 for rtn and have them at 88%.

anybody have an explanation why RTV's transponder is just a little offside the other 83w transponders?

has anybody noticed the signal is stronger at night than during the day?

Some of these birds have antennas on differnt sides . I noticed it made a difference when LEO 1 was adjacent. I could bump two klicks west and get good RTV.

Their are two low ionospheric layers that are very dense that disappear at night.

Any luck with tuning into RTV? I've been trying to get this one for two months not with not success. 66% quality on the two data channels, I've twisted and turned the LNB in so many directions and I even took a TV out and hooked up the LNB directly to the receiver. The highest I was able to get was 20%.

For help, please post your receiver, dish,motor and lnbf info.
