DVB-S with QPSK and FEC of 3/4 has C/N lock of 5.5 dB doesn't it? This is all Lyngsat is saying.

Added: Maybe it's not QPSK. If 8PSK, that pushes C/N lock to 7.9.

You receive ARCS from 139w in New Mexico? I don't see even a hint of a signal here. If so, what size dish do you have?
10 ft dish here in Rio Rancho. It's a very low signal but steady most of the time. New footprint I believe will put us out of it. 8 channels scan in. 5 different ones as their are duplicates. One is a black screen. ARCS rotates programming. The others are PBS FNX 24/7 channels.

We monitor the ARCS service at our gateway with a GI receiver, when I get back to work after vacation I will see what our raw C/N is at the input to the receiver, then manually attenuate it and see where we lose lock on it.
