I finally got my motorized Ku band system running.(I couldn't do it without you guys thanks)
I have a standard LNB
1) On Galaxy 28, I was hoping for BYUTV but its not there, maybe my transponder settings are off IDK
2) I Cant get anything on AMC-21 I'm thinking the LNB is wrong, as its standard not circular, and if that's the case whats the easiest way to fix it.
Any help is greatly appreciated
tnx

If you have a standard linear LNBF with local Oscillator at 10750 MHz then you have the right LNBF. Those are not circular.

You're right. The BYU-TV feeds are not on 89W at the moment. Did you get "Ch-2" (KETV Ch. 7) on 12196 H 2784 on 89W?

No (ill make sure later) and thanks, all i was getting was stuff from the adjacent sat.
Not getting anything on AMC-21 will try some more transponders not sure how good this list is.

Not sure why, but they sometimes go off the air. I haven't seen it in at least a week :(

BYU is not good for dish alignment since you never know if it's on or not. Colour bars are on 24/7 at 12131 V 10369.

BYU is actually still on G28 but recently changed transponders to 11884 H 2788 4/5 DVB-S2 QPSK
However, their signal is fairly weak so an undersized or misaligned dish won't receive it. As well, you need a DVB-S2 capable receiver to tune it in

Rescan 89W. They're on again with the new parameters pwrsurge mentioned above. (Also low here, at around 42Q)
