This is really weird and have't really noticed it until tonight

Was scanning IA6 and picked up a few feeds that had really low quality (barely a 10 on the Pansat) and doesnt even register on the Coolsat. But If I go East one click (which on the Coolsat is probably 3 clicks) then those said feeds come in great

BUT

The other chanenls on the satellite the signal drops.

Doc Scott goes from 76 to 66
CBS Newsfeed goes from 72 to 64
a TP that has a feed that comes and goes all the time went from 66 to 0
Azteca went from 79 to 72

If I moved back, then the signal goes up but the other TP's go bye bye.

One thing is all the normal channels are on V and these "feeds" are H...how does that work (I thought the same satellite had the same beam down). Why would H be off (so its like at 92.7 instead of 93.0) ??
 
I have noticed the same phenom! I put it down to satellite wobble!

OK so I aint crazy...this might be why I could never get CLassic Arts because its a H transponder and the dish was aimed for the V side.

weird....
 
I also noticed Classic Arts is scrambled mainly then its free for a while! Right now scrambled again!
