@ray224000, I manually entered in my receiver the Transponder Freq. 3901, Vertical, Symbol Rate 27893, and came up with a bunch of scrambled channels including The Pentagon Channel (or DOD News Network) among them. Bad news is at the moment it comes in pretty weak for me 37-46% Signal Quality, 85% Signal Intensity. It could always improve later but it does look like it's there. :)

@ray224000, I will do that soon or shortly, I took a ton of pics as I went, to try to avoid any kind of bad nit-picking all back and forth to bring the whole experience down on me. I figure I did a pretty good job on my new dish addition, with all of those added channels. Not to mention the almost 15 additional radio channels I couldn't add to the list, but they are all scrambled anyway so it doesn't matter.

@danristheman, thank you Dan! That means a lot to me. I think I did a pretty good job on it for a weekends worth of hard work in the sun, wasps and heat. I wonder if I should start the new thread on the C-Band discussion, or the FTA Shack forum?

Christopher good job on the install. Maybe when your wife sees all the programming you are getting off of just one c band satellite she will change her mind and be more supportive. I'm lucky in that my wife don't seem to be against anything I do- especially satellite related. Now time to enjoy what you've done.

@bigger t, thank you so very much for those kind positive words! :) I still think I did a very good job on the install, and I can only hope that when I start a new thread, everyone will try to realize that I did the best I could with what I had around me to use. The important thing is that I got it installed without injury or death from the roof, I got it working as good as it can be, so like you just correctly said I can enjoy my hard work. I am still working with my wife to give FTA a fair shake. She said she might maybe watch MeTV off C-Band sometime. That would be better than nothing. :)
