AMC-1 was replaced last week by replacement satellite SES-1. Has anybody noticed if the 26 degree skew offset is still present? I noticed a couple of fixed receive only systems are showing slightly lower Eb/No.

SES-1 replaced AMC 2 and AMC 4, not AMC 1. AMC 2/4 never had a funky skew and AMC 1, not being replaced (at this time) still does have the skew "issue."

Newfoundland, canada. The footprint barely makes it to the west coast now. Where as before it was all newfoundland.

I have lost everything on 101.
maybe you could still get a lock with a bigger dish?
it is amazing to me that some areas are not getting sig on this bird, it pegs out the meter on the pansat here.
i have always wondered how tight they could actually make the footprints.
i wonder where the line is actually at between a lockable signal and no signal for this bird now.
