Satellite Signal

I was just wondering if a few people could post what their signal levels are for TSN, Sportsnet, CBC Regina and the US networks and CTV Toronto HD stations. Please specify what channel for sure. I want to compare to see if my signal is normal or weak.

Mine is also 7.2 on a sunny day. Not sure if that's good or bad. 93% as well.

Anyone else able to post any readings or pm them to me. Please specify channel number so I know if it is SD or HD. Much appreciated. Hopefully someone can post a few.

Transponder swap

TVA HD classic 211 has recently been moved to the ridiculously weaker transponder #150 on F2 and the signal strength varies between the low sixties to mid seventies in Florida since.
If you are not watching on a clear sunny day, it is now prone to be one of the first channel to loose signal.

I hesitate trying to tweak my dish trying to get a better signal on that channel because I am afraid to mess up reception of other channels which are doing very good for the most part.

I would really like to hear from Bayguy in California and other people in Mexico and/or anyone in the southern provinces on how they are currently doing with the same channel before I start tweaking my dish.

Thanks in advance.
