Perhaps you can work with Brian as a test site, to tweak the 5g rejection on his lnbf? I wonder if maybe you got one that's defective, meaning not working as well as it should work? I wonder if the providers in your local area have the transmitters cranked up illegally too high? I don't know, I'd have to say only Brian could tell us what's up with your spectrum prints. TitaniumYes. The signal graphs are about as close as I can get to a spectrum analyzer in post #1 and post #17. They show narrow spikes below 3800 MHz. When I put EBS Pro into continuous scan mode I could see that the spikes randomly appeared and disappeared. So they are not from an FTA satellite (those are somewhat constant). And its not radar because the frequency of the spikes vary. (Which is because 5G has many channels).
Also, the interference has been gradually getting worse in the 3 months I have had the C138. And I got a postcard in the mail from Verizon advertising that 5G internet is now available in my area.
Its not just 5G from cell towers in my area. When someone in my neighborhood installs 5G internet they become a new source of interference.
Earlier in this thread, Titanium suggested that I get my neighbor to install an app to identify the tower. But that would not tell me which houses have 5G home internet. Even if I knew there is nothing I could do about it.
Finally, please take another look at those spectrum graphs. It looks to me like the C138 is not doing very much to attenuate signals in the 3700-3800 range. That's my opinion, others may disagree. Maybe it needs a stronger filter?
I just had another thought, do you have a local airport or something, where you can talk to somebody there and ask them IF they also are suddenly experiencing high levels of 5g ingress? If so, ask them what they are doing to fix it.
