Is it possible to not see some transponders on 110 due to weather?

Yesterday was quite windy and today as well. My big ol 5' dish that aims to 110 moves a little.

I am able to see channel 102, which is 110 and all of HDTV without any problems, but I can't see 103 and 104 which are also on 110, but using transponder 22 or 23 I believe.

If I check the signal I get a low 38 on that transponder, but get 50+ on the 12, and even higher on the spot-beam...

Any clues? Just wondering.

I am still thinking that getting a DP34 just to hook-up 61.5 is useless untill football season starts and I can get CBS in HD. Still, what else is there in that bird worth the hassle. I already have a DTV dish pointed to E* 61.5, just need to sell my 2 DP21s and buy a DP34 and a DP LNB...

Any opinions?

Finally, and silly enough, I just figured out that I would pay almos the same if I got all movie packages including HBO+CINEMAX+SHOWTIME+STARZ/ENCORE and downgrading to AT60, than what I pay now for AT120 and HBO+CINEMAX+SHOWTIME...

Really, having SCIFI, A&E, TNT, History, and Discovery is really all you need from AT60... What else good is there in AT120, besides Sirius (which is fine if you listen to music on your TV+I barerly have time to watch the tube, much less listen to music in it)...

Any other cool reasons I haven't thought of?

since you are in PR, i guess some transponders might not have as strong as a signal to you. try peaking out your signal on transponder 11 or 12. i believe those are the national coverage.
