any body else getting weak signals/quality from 99w ku band?

i know i am "on the arc" because i get very high quality from all other sats across the arc....but 99w seems weak to the point where some channels pixelate....my line of sight is clear across the entire arc....is it just me??

Which TPs on 99west are you using to compare to?

If this is a recent development, is it possible that the Sun is interfering?

its gotta be sun interference...noticed it Saturday too. Most of the news feeds were really low or non-existant on the meter (and they're up all the time)

Other than the Russian S2 mux (when any of it was ITC), I've never had very strong signals on 99w Ku compared to just about any other satellites. I have no idea why.

For me there seems to be no change. I've got CBS newspath and that's it. (Ku band).
