Local Satellite @ 72.5 deg. stopped working? HELP

With no change in weather and we have no trees or mountains my local channels stopped coming in a couple days ago. Directv wants to charge 50$ to come out. No way.

It was again working this morning and tonight it's out again.

I can't get to the dish right now as it's 2 stories up and I'm trying to locate a ladder.

When I test the signal, I'm getting 100 on transponder 2 and 0 on transponder 4 for 72.5 degrees. My 2nd dish is not an issue. It works.

Welcome to the Site !!!

If your in NW Ohio, it's probably Toledo.
Reason I asked is, I have friends that get their locals thru D* as well and a few days ago, thier locals also went out, they told them they would be out on the 22 I think.

What have you found ? Have you talked to D* about this ?
The can't just turn your locals off without reason, the bill is paid.

We are also in the NW Ohio area, Sylvania.
