Nelson61 and I are working on determining the few issues we have with the current 61.5W spotbeam maps located on TheList. If you have a VIP receiver and have a dish pointed at 61.5 please take a moment and post your signal strengths.

On the Point Dish screen please allow the receiver time to lock the spotbeam signals as it will sometimes take a 10-15 seconds. Be sure to include on the signal readings if the screen says Spotbeam or Transponder and whether it is a locked signal or not.

Please copy&paste and use the following template. We only need the listed transponders:

Receiver type: 722, 622, etc
Dish: Dish 500 (no I adapter), Dish 500 (w/ I adapter), Dish300, Dish 1000.4, etc.
Area: Zipcode preferred but approximate area is fine.
Date/Time: around 7pm 5/26/09 (slight bit of rain, clear skies, etc)

01: 35% (Spotbeam)
03: 45% (not locked)
