Hi
I think I have it right, but I need conformation. I installed my dish at camp using my recievers signal meter. I have the following signal strength's, all on Transponder 1, for 101 -87%, 99c -82%, 103cb -82%. By the way it's very cloudy and raining today. I have no signal on the following: 99s, 103s and 103ca. Is this normal? or am I supose to have signal on these satellites?
Thanks

Theb (s) sats are spot beams and I believe the (ca) one is for the D12 sat that isn't in place yet. So you look good, but the 99 and 103 could be a bit better.

What are your signal strengths on the other transponders? If the ones you posted are the lowest, then you are probably okay, but if they get into the 70's, then you are not quite aligned correctly.

Thanks to all
99 & 103 are 78 to 84, and 101 are 86 to 98. Had some on 99 go up to 95 when sun came out, I will tweak it a bit more. I seem to have all my channels, Thanks guys
