Can anyone in the SF Bay Area give me some numbers to compare with? Not sure if my readings are worth improving although I do get the checking for signal message on certain channels : This is with a Slimline 5LNB

101 - TP's 1-8 (91,95,90,98,88,98,91,97)

What are your signal strengths on the 110 and 119?

My readings were taken with clouds but no rain.

Overall your signals are lower than mine. I'd be most concerned about your 103c readings. All the national MPEG4 HD comes from this bird, and you could experience signal drops sooner than I would during bad weather.

You missed 99W

In your area you should have 99(b) also: tp1/tp3/tp5 80...100.

Can anyone in the SF Bay Area give me some numbers to compare with? Not sure if my readings are worth improving although I do get the checking for signal message on certain channels : This is with a Slimline 5LNB

Looks like we have a signal from D11, check the picture from today:

Projections have D11 arriving at it's final destination by the end of the week. While I know that D* is officially saying September as the go live date for D11 I can't imagine it taking 4 months to light up the CONUS transponders. I know the spot beams may take a while to get pointed in the right direction and tested but the CONUS ones shouldn't take as long.

Maybe July 1st will be the date D11 gets turned on as Encore HD gets relaunched on July 1st and since Liberty owns both Starz/Encore and D*, I can't imagine that Encore HD will go live and not be on D*.

Well, after close examination, I would say those signals looks like as a crosstalk between different polarity tpns.

So, lets wait for final parking the D11. It could happen this week.

I know the spot beams may take a while to get pointed in the right direction and tested but the CONUS ones shouldn't take as long.
Because D11 is the last best hope for 100% spotbeam coverage, I'll bet that spots are their primary concern. If they have to tilt the satellite to get the right coverage, they don't want to lose CONUS in the process.

Note that even when D10 was considered nominal all along, there were problems with some of the spotbeams that may or may not have been fixed. This is their chance to cover those problems (assuming they still exist).
