Hello to all,

I am a new Dish customer and I am curious about what is considered a normal signal level on the VIP222K receiver. I currently have a reading to around 70 on 110 and 119 sats with a clear day. 129 runs around 55.

Is this about right for a install with 150ft of RG-6 with solid copper center conductor?

BTW I am zip 31701.

The signal isn't percentage based. Beside 70s on 110 and 119 alis reallu good and upper 50s on 129 is almost impossible in my area

Thanks, its good to know even with a 150 ft of cable attenuation my signals are still good. BTW some of my 129 transponders are a little less than 55 they are around 45 on a clear day.

I get 80 on 110 89-90 on 119 and 64-65 on 129 on a 1000.2. Well above average.

Your signal levels are still great though.
