Having an issue with signal strength on transponder 129. Signal varies from 10-15 and drops out frequently. Transponder 110 is steady at 75--solid. Transponder 119 is steady at 50--solid. Dish 500 with a triple LNB--(don't have a model). This setup is in northwest indiana about 40 miles southeast of Chicago. There may be a tree issue but I don't understand how 110 and 119 are so strong and 129 is marginal. Hints? I can provide additional info if needed. Thanks

129 is 10 degrees west of 119. Could that tree issue be on the westerly side of your satellite view?
 
Yes, the trees are to the west of the view. That was my guess. Really no other place to move the dish. It will probably improve in the fall/winter when the leaves are gone. My view going north is pretty much tree free. Not much of a help for this issue. Thanks
