This is going to be the never ending thread until SES3 goes live.
I was never able to keep COZI locked until I installed a 1M Channel Master on 103W for a recurring feed. Now I get COZI at 70-75 quality with a bandstacked Dish FSS LNB from a Superdish bolted to the original CM feedhorn. These are not known as the most sensitive LNBs out there. I also receive all NBC feeds at 70-75Q (microHD) and the feed I put the dish up for at the same quality. Everything stays locked and steady. Big dishes are the answer to 103W woes...
This morning COZI is trying to lock in but the Q is too low. Typically it takes the PLL LNB a couple of minutes before it starts to see a signal and then try and lock on. COZI is not S2 its 480i.
The Beach cams are right up there at Q 75.
I could go out and re skew the LNB but it will deterioate all the other sats. Besides for the past while its been OK without changing the skew.
As I'm writing this COZI has locked in at about Q 60. Go figure?
Cozi's transponder came in at a solid 60% sunday morning for a few hours.
Anyone have the SES6 live date?
I had a dishwasher in my old apartment that squealed like a herd of hump-back whales. I finally hammered a screwdriver into the motor windings till it died. I worked at an appliance store and got a nice one at wholesale. We need an astronaut with the same mentality.
Yep! Mornings seem to give the highest quality. The colder weather helps as well. No problem getting 86-87Q on my 1 metre this time of year. Of course, this is with proper skew on fixed dish.
So far this week no COZI TV. Too cold, 10º F, to go out and reskew to the oddball value. Beach cams OK at Q75.
Could it be the cold weather? Something has changed.
