Has the minimum dish size for this sat changed? I'm able to get almost everything in between 34.5w and 52e but I'm not able to get this bird and 60e.

Is a tricky satellite for me on the Raven Mesh 88cm set up I get all satellites from 53E to 45W
But one transponder on 51.5E 11290 H 45000 keeps breaking up,
The other 2 11230 H 45000 & 11350 45000 working OK,

On my OP Gibertini 100 XP set up I get 52E & 50E to 45W with no problems,
But on 51.5E I get no signals at all :eek:

11290H 45000 is a tricky one to lock here too.The rest of the tps are ok. 11290 is dropping in & out of lock

I have not looked here for some time.This is what I get on my 100cm orbital dish in South Yorkshire.I notice that Sport 5 is Fta just now on 11289 H 44944.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Using the cheap - scrapper - DRO LNB on the 80cm orbital .20200801_204056.jpg

So, 52E is bleeding in.

All our kit cant be having a bad day. It must be a transmission issue.

Forgot to mention that I've been trying to get this on a 110cm dish but cannot get this sat - this one and 60e.

11290 h 45000 is certainly an odd transponder ... Having a bit of time to spare today i tried different receivers on this one from a 1.2 channel master.

Octagon sx88+ optima ..... perfect reception - no glitches or breakup

GT Media / V 7 HD ...... perfect reception - no glitches or breakup

DR HD F15 .... 15 db good signal no droput - all channels scanned in - all info displayed - despite this - No audio /video on any channels

Technomate 5302 HD ... good signal but drops out every 5 seconds or so - scans in all channels but just as numbers - not names - no program info either . ... No audio /video on any channels

Skybox M3 HD ..... No signal - Transponder not recognized ... 11230 H 45000 is recognized though ??



I must say Rebel T.V on 11290H 45000 has been playing a pretty good selection of rock music all afternoon :cool:

Same behaviour on my Openbox v8s.

Managed to get 11290 to peak at 12.5db but still not a stable lock on the Primo.

Its a weird one .... moving my 1.2 dish off the satellite slightly shows that it needs fully 12.5 db to run the Optima - i get slight break up starting once below that

Don't forget with such FEC 8/9 you need a good SNR for a stable picture

This morning I did some longitude adjusting for my dish.That increased the quality fron 89 to 93 %.I got good video and sound.Checked again just now to confirm that it was not a fluke.Still good lorry racing on now.
