    Advice Needed missing frequencies 30W

    Thank you. Interesting. I have similar set-up: TRIAX 110 30W; elliptical 90x60 with 28E, 23E, 19E, 13E, 10/9E. I am in footprint of 10/9E, but I cannot get ALL stations. THAT is the discussion.

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    I covered the LNB with a folded white plastic bag and the 5 other LNBs with a white paper bag - for the moment. Let's see if there is any change in signal strength. Black LNB was surprisingly cold today..... (Wind N, straight from North Sea.)

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    Hmmmm...... I am sorry, but I disagree: it is cold and it remains cold, after all, it is "summer" ! NOT more than 3 degrees difference day/night. If temperature, then does a graph of relation temp/signal strength exist? I cannot find one. Has the D-layer an effect on signal strength ...

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    My first message in this thread refers to the photo with Hispasat TRIAX. This is another, oval dish 90x65 aimed primarily at Hotbird 13E, but with 6 LNBs. Yes, I tried another LNB, Diseqc box, short cable, long cable to the TV: all were exchanged. Last night I monitored signals from 5 pm to 5 am...

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    I have been monitoring signal strengths (=quality) on 10A with 9B. I have a (Turkish) tuner only. Signals on ALL 16 stations that I noted were weaker at 17.30 CEST and increased every hour until even 03.10 (or later). Weather is cold (17 -12° night), dry. Can anyone tell me why? See previous...

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    Thank you, A33. Good presentation. I did similar calculations earlier: That 1h 9.6m the satellite is in the umbra, more hours in the penumbra (Latin for half-shadow). With the Earth's tilt of 23.5° that umbral cone will indeed be below the satellites on 21 June. They will still be in the...

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    Did you ever see or record a graph of signal strength during a day+night? Not of BBC1 of course as that always is 99%. Did your LNB cover help?

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    Several points here: Even the Moon at 400,000 kms (0.5°) takes 1.5 HOURS to traverse Earth's shadow at total lunar eclipse, it is that big. Of course it is irrelevant that Earth's equator is in shadow, but the satellite is over the equator and - for ease of calculation - the moments of sunrise...

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    I monitored the strength ("Quality") of various tx: stronger ones and weaker ones. I noticed that Zagros, 4E, ORTB, RTS, AFN bars were weak or NOT giving an image before 6 pm local. Getting stronger later, even giving a good image at 7.30 local. Signals getting stronger towards midnight. MY...

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    On "weatherforecast for aviation" it says sunrise 03.04 UTC, sunset 20.18 UTC. Longest day, so that indeed makes 17 1/4 hours of sunshine on the LNB. (OK, not 19 hours).

    Eutelsat 10/9 reception - or not

    (Continued from "Missing frequencies on Hispasat 30W): Right. I am still here.... As you can see on this last photo of TRIAX dish, behind it is an oval dish (90x65) aimed at 13° E. LNBs on 28°E, 23°E, 19°E and 13°E give excellent (Quality) signals: up to 99%. AND I have one LNB for Eutelsat 10...

LNBs on 28°E, 23°E, 19°E and 13°E give excellent (Quality) signals: up to 99%. AND I have one LNB for Eutelsat 10 and 9. I was watching programs on 6 TER Suisse AND e.g...
