Since Nov and the cold weather I had to reposition my antenna at 160' for max signal on Nbc.
A few times at this position Fox would fluctuates enough on the Samsung tuner that it would pixelates and drop out, but fine with the LG and the tuner in the Jvc tv. Since then I have rewired the feeds to the recievers. Before was using a 2 way splitter one feed for the bedroom LG with 2 more 2 way splitters to cut down the signal to the Lg. The other feed going outside and into my basement into a 3 way splitter.
The 3.5db port going into the Jvc tv and one 7db port going to a Dish 811 with attenuators totaling 9db. The last 7db went into the Samsung 451 and loop out to a Ati HD card.
I rewired it two weeks ago that a 3way splitter in the bedroom and the 7db into the LG. The other 7db output to the Dish 811 with the same attenuators 9db. The 3.5db into the basement into a 2 way splitter one going to the Jvc and the other output going to the Samsung.
Basically the Samsung gets -7db of signal vs -10.5db.
This was not a big deal since I dont really watch the Toshiba tv in the basement where the Samsung 451 is connected.
Anyway I decide to try and move the antenna towards 175 to 180' last week and it would not turn in any direction.
Brought home a new rotor on Friday from work and was going to get up on the roof on over the weekend and change it.
Tried to move the antenna Sat morning, it did not move. I decide to try again to move the antenna, this was around 1pm and it moved.
The antenna moved.
Is there a problem with the 9521 rotor kit, as this is the second rotor that does not move well when the temp gets below freezing.
The other rotor when I took it down there was no rust or water inisde the housing.
The seals on the rotor is fine. Is there anything that can be done to improve the performance, better sealing ?
I emailed channel master today to see if there is a bad batch with the rotors.
