Anybody picked up Telstar 14 lately, just tried tonight, can't lock on the PBS channels any more. Hint of a signal but very weak.

Works OK for me. Watching Sandra Bullock on Tavis Smiley now....

EDIT: Even better, the Woodwright Shop on Create is on too....

Thanks Harry, if you're getting it in AZ, I definitely have a problem, lol. Still think one of these big walnut trees has moved, I'll try eyeballing it again tomorow.

Turbosat,

Yes, I have been watching the stations on 11966 V @ 11280 Ks/S often. It is one of my weakest signals, but it is holding in at 42% quality on my AZBox. This is actually a pretty fair reading, I have a ways to go to get down to the threshold for the AZBox which is somewhere near 33% quality or possibly even a little lower, so I have a bit of buffer room here.

Readings taken with 1.2 M GEOSAT pro antenna, Invacom QPH-031 LNBF and AZBox Premium.

I was getting it today at 52%quality, about the best I ever got it on my .90Channel master dish.
Might have to move a dish further out to 'see' around this big walnut tree, it's just too nice a tree to kill for one satellite though. Now, if it was a pine it'd be a goner.

Turbo, Yeah I get it here but just above threshold as well. Tree issues as well. Sadly they are a line of trees on the neighbors property. I'm waiting on spring this year when I'll lose the signal all together most probably. Blind

Sounds like trees are in the way. I get that transponder with a Coolsat S 66-69 with a Coolsat 5000 and 36in dish. I'm about to change that out with a Fortec 120cm. I have a clear view down to almost 10 W. Here in FL my elevation is much higher on sats and this gets me over most trees.
