Was watching the ball game on WMQF, Fox Marquette, and the signal was lost. Can't get any TP's on G10R right now. Have to assume it's related to the switchover to G-17 at this location. [edit] I'm re-blindscanning the location.
My Merc II and 80 cm dish have this bird ( 4:20PM EDT) and the ball game is on WMQF , so I lost it on the 90cm dish, but 10 minutes later, I have it fine on the 80 cm dish. Was it a "switchover" ? or a "glitch"?
:(

I'm still getting stuff at 4:20pm EDT. Though the Q on 11800 is down to next to nothing.... between 0 and 15 on my Viewsat. 11720 is nil.

There are a couple of severe weather warnings around Little Rock so maybe that's more to do with this at this moment.

Oddly, I get 11800 poorly on the 80 cm, but not at all on the 90 cm. Strange goings on. I'm watching the game on KUIL now, Beaumont, Texas. [edit[ weather related makes sense, since it may take me 5 minutes or so to get the other system in position to compare signals. Both 90cm on IV200 and Merc II on 80cm are working adequately on WMQF at the moment.

GAS said the switch over would occur this weekend, but he didn't say which day. Switch overs usually occur late at night or in the early morning hours. I don't think the switch has happened yet.
