Guys…. Just bought a new motor (SG2100),I would like to set it up today …just to check on my figures:

Zip code : 01721

AMC-6 as a true south (KU) satellite.

Motor elev= 47 deg maybe 48
Dish elev. (when used with motor)= 23 deg maybe 23.5

What active transponder should I use?

12052 tends to be active most of the time. But remember, we have a list at the top with active/strong transponders as well.

EDIT: Lumpkin beat me to it.

You should select a setting for the LNB of 10600/9750, and I think you need to turn the 22khz setting on. Others will clear this up, but I think this should work, or you could use 10600 for channels with frequencies over 11700 (All of US channels) and 9750 for the frequencies under 11700.

Try " The Weather Channel", use the information from :72 AMC 6

I know it's encrypted but, it has a strong signal and I know it is always active.

GBN can be tricky to lock sometime.

I just checked and I don't see what you have found, could you please scan again (Blind, or Smart) and PM more information to me, like the frequency and symbol rate.

Thanks.

It looks like you set your LNB frequency to 10600, like I said, I have a small correction to make since your receiver does not work the same way as my Pansat does.

In the US they do not use 12200 and above for FTA, only the subscription uses it.

You are picking up 11715 but since the LNB frequency is wrong it shows up as 12565, so set the LNB frequency to 9750.

Also I think you are on AMC6 so you should see GBN and The Weather Channel.
