I don't actually know if N6 is up and running yet or not, but it seems odd that some of readings have gone up.
Now the only true way of finding out is those in "The Far South" if they had a signal on certain trs and now there's nothing you most likel know N6 is up and running.
In any case by late July or late Aug by the latest you know N6 is up running.
Bayguy and ADM222 from our southern provinces have both reported loss of a few transponders. This could be because they are using a SD receiver and these transponders have switched to HD or because they are now out of the footpath.
On the morning of June 20th, I woke up to find that ALL of my subscribed channels were missing on my 6131 receiver. Upon doing a self-resynchronization using the Bell website, all of the channels have since returned. I'm just wondering if this might have been caused by a changeover to N6??
Normals for my meter are 12.9 to 13.3 on 91 and anywhere from 15.0 to 15.6 on 82. Lately on some installs my 91 signal has been as low as 12.1-12.4 even when 82 is what it is normally. Then sometimes it's spot on like normal.
Nothing different about my method.....using the same single LNB to point with and still getting different results.....skew and elevation spot on as always, but it's driving me up the wall trying to figure out if it's the satellite or the tech.
I've noticed that lately too. We had some heavy rain here a few days ago that actually knocked out most of the transponders on 91 at my house, where I've never had a problem before with any weather. It will be nice when N6 is fully functioning, but until then it's making things slightly more difficult lol
Yesterday I noticed transponder 1 sitting at 85%, then jump up to 100% for a few seconds, then back to 85% for 30 seconds or so, and this just kept going on. I suspect it's only a matter of time before it's fully operational.
Lucky you! I haven't a single transponder over 75 this morning. Reception seems fine however so I'm not worrying yet.
(Nasty rumor down in the Maritmes that Bell Aliant want everyone to switch to their local TV service and that to encourage this they have arranged to make the satellite's footprint less than optimal in this area).
