    Can't wait to get home and see if I can lock this mux on my dish.

    Well hopefully NC the 113W C band transponders are hotter than the KU band transponders are...Reuters is always rather weak here in NM.

    Can we get a list going of who can receive this new mux and how large your dish is that is receiving it?

    113W is my due south bird but never been a strong one here in Montana. I'm using a 10' perforated CM with an ortho feed with Norsat PLLs.

    Steady 100 percent here in Rio Rancho, NM on my 10 ft dish.
    The signal fluctuates a little on 7.5 dish. Signals in 80s.

    I'm about 200 miles west of you. I get no signal on that transponder using my 10 foot Winegard. I get 55 other channels fine on 113 W. I receive the Luken mux with a 74 signal level on 87 W. I will miss it next month.

    You are correct, it is apparently on C1 - based on the frequency plan info on http://frequencyplansatellites.altervista.org/SatMex/Satmex_6.pdf .
    The Luken transponder is on the CONUS beam, which has its strongest coverage on the Gulf states, and lowest on the northern US states and barely into Canada. That explains why it's not so strong in Montana. This said, I get a rather strong signal here in Connecticut (75% quality on my Amiko miniHDre).

    The Eutelsat maps put me in the 42dBW footprint (I think) for SE Kansas. Not as strong as the bubble over the Gulf states, but I'm still hoping for a miracle on my 1.2m dish :D
