Cool

I find this odd. When I replaced a 60 CM Dish with a new 75 CM one (both with the now older style LNB) both signal strength and Ecbno increase significantly.

The Data is here: Tough installation - Location - Help PLease

I hope this is helpful.

Regards,
Jim

credit card address for pre-authorized payments

Has anyone setup pre-authorized monthly billing using a credit card that has a billing address OTHER than a Canadian address?
The card itself is a Canadian card through a Canadian institution, but the billing address is in the U.S.
Anyone?

US credit card and billing address (Cap. One). Bogus CA service address and phone. Have contacted them occasionally from a US email address. No issues since I signed up 4 years ago.

Easy- you are 4 degrees off.
Instead of being pointed at:
Anik F1 (107.3░W) Anik F2 (111.1░W)
You are pointed at (103.5░W) and (107.3░W).
or
111.1░W and 114.9░W

If not that- there is a tree or other object in the way of the satellite in question.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

Cool If not there is always a Chain Saw

If the Trees lose their leaves, he may get the Channels Back.

A tree trimmer to cut back the offending branches would work. The problem will grow back but if you know someone with a pole trimmer and you can determine the offending branches then you can potentially fix the problem. I have done it at home.
