I didn't even think you had to have a subscription on the IPhone / Droid to get a DishPointer program.
I used 12152 SR 20000 and it brought in AMC-1 NBC Feeds (am watching the NBC Nightly News right now on it). It is not unique to 97W at least with the First Strike meter.
As pointed out in another thread, 12152 is also found on 103W, but the bizzarre LNBF Rotation (Skew) on that satellite is at a minimum of +25 degrees from a correct LNBF Rotation on 97W. I suggest that you are actually on the 103W satellite and your skew may also be incorrectly set. Why not use the FS meter or a satellite receiver to scan and identify what satellite that you are on?3. First Strike reading sl/sq of 75/55 on multiple G19 tp settings, including 12152 H 20000. It did not lock. Looking through the 200c, signal quality readings were the same, but no lock - no video. The tech support folks at Glorystar suggested I was looking at the wrong satellite. I know that is possible. I noticed Brian's comment "The strongest Galaxy19 TP frequency that is not duplicated on any other satellite is 12152MHz, Polarity - Horizontal, SR - 20000." I panned and adjusted elevations for a long time trying to find another hit just east and slightly higher to no avail. I went west with 12060 H 26700 looking for 101W - nothing. I am stumped on this one.
4. The church. I went back and mounted scaffolding and connected the FS1 meter. Nothing. Connected the meter inside - nothing. I had had FS1 locked in this setting before. I looked at the dish/101W with the old Lifetime Ultra and was able to view many 101W (SES1) programs. Running low on time, I postponed the reposistioning of that dish for 97W. Will do that again soon and report.
using the receiver or FS meter to scan to see what satellite I am on ?? I am not aware of how I can do that.
On the church location - - I am certainly not an expert, but I am gaining some habits, some good. One is that I know I am not hooked up if I don't have 50% or so of sl. No need to go further if I am not connected to a working lnb. When I wrote nothing, I meant 50% or so sl and 0-5 sq. I also cary extra lnb's. Not only was the existing lnb working, I checked with one of 3 known to be working receivers. This one was a lifetime ultra. I viewed History Channel, Bio, and many others. So I know the cable is good, the lnbf is good, the dish hasn't moved since installation 11 or so years ago to see AMC4.
The suggestion that I temporarily hook up a Dish or Driect lnb to find their bird to reference where to go to find G19.. good idea. I have an old Dish500 here. I will see if I can rob an lnb from there.
I am guessing, but maybe each satellite will cause the usual tp frequencies I have in my FS to respond in a pattern specific to that satellite.
We are hoping that since the church dish is firmly reading 101W, we should be able to pan east 4 degrees and hit on G19.
