I read today on the SuperDish info thread that my locals are moving off of 105 to a 110 spotbeam in a couple of weeks.

Seems that I've read that a 105 SuperDish is peaked for 105. Is it possible and worth it when the time comes to peak my SuperDish for 110/119 only??? If it is possible, how do I go about doing this?

It should already be peaked. :)

In fact if you didnt read here that your locals were moving from 105 to 110 you would never have noticed. :D

Hello Neighbor, I'll let you know shortly after the switch if it's worth messing with.

Then my superdish105 isn't peaked. I get more rain fade on the superdish then I did with my dish500. It didn't take much rain to lose 105 but I even lost 110 and 119 in some rain that I know I wouldn't have with my Dish500.

Once my locals move over to 110 what would I have to do to hook back up my Dish500? When I was last using it I had 2 SW21 switches with Legace Dual LNBs feeding a 501 and 7100. Now I have a 625.

edit here is what I get on 110 TP 11 100, TP 12 97, 119 TP 11 85, TP 12 89. I know I was in the hundreds with my dish500.

Thanks,

Supposedly my signals are good. I just get some rainfade and want to get the strongest signal within reason. Could I get better signal strengths either by:

1) adjusting my SuperDish
2) using a Dish 500 for 110/119
3) using separate dishes 110/119

Here are my current signals using a 322:

110
tp 11 - 102
tp 12 - 107

119
tp 11 - 108
tp 12 - 109

Its not tuned in great, it could be tuned in better than what you have now.
