    The smoke from the Camp Fire in Paradise cleared an hour ago, so took advantage of one of the last short sleeve days. Completed final approval and live signal performance checks on a dozen production run samples of a new Titanium Satellite product. Had an extra 1/2 hour left, so optimized the motorized 90cm KU dish while up in the shop roof. The Signal Quality dropped after washing the reflector and had to do a slight realignment. Don't all dishes work better with bird crap on the reflector? LOL!!!

    The production run samples are approved and pallets of product will be on the water next week. Maybe something you will want under the tree this holiday season? More information will be posted up soon... :)

    Happy Fall Season to Satellite Guys and Gals...

    Awesome! Might have to look into this new gadget! :)
    Also glad to hear the fires stayed away from you. Fire season up here is over for this year, it's been a rough one too, but no population density like CA!
    +5F this am with 20mph winds so no dish tuning up today here. :(

    The Dr.HD 1000S+ supports switching and motor control via DiSEqC 1.0 / 1.1 / 1.2 / USALS.

    Hmmmm, so while he was on the roof checking out a new Titanium product he decided to peak the Ku dish since he had his Dr. HD meter with him. What do you suppose he was checking out?

    So according to what Brian said he checked out a dozen samples of his new product in an hour. So what could he swap out a dozen of and check with a meter??? Some new DiSEqC switches maybe??? Maybe a new universal Ku PLL LNBF?? :coco

    The testing samples were factory run batch pulls of the new model C2-PLL with filtering. :)
