Man,I used to get dozen of channels on this location.
I tried to align a dish to it today,and I can't even get good strength,let alone quality.
Anybody have any hints on this location.I used to use a 10750 universal lnb.
CNN is suppose to be at 11731H13240.
I can't get any transponder to react.Even the one posted in _strong transponder-section.Hmmm
-11732 H 13240 is listed as a strong transponder in that thread.

universal lnbf should be LO=9750 - 10600, 22 khz AUTO. Or standard, with 22 khz ON, and LO freq 10600.

Why do you think CNN is here? CNN is usually on SES 2 at 87W on weekends. Veteran's, Daystar and Peace are about all I ever saw on 123W Ku when I could get it last year.

I have occasionally seen a couple of the cable news channels on that mux, on Channel 4 I believe.

Everything on 123W Ku has been harder to get for me the last several months, not sure why.

You're right about CNN...I see reports from 2010 on 123W. I will install a dedicated dish for 125W as soon as weather warms. Maybe I can park the dish to also grab 123W, or at least keep the bracket loose so I can manually bump the dish when it is just outside my viewing room window.
