103W is well worth the effort to receive. With my newly-installed 1.2-metre Ku dish, this satellite is strong and stable. The challenge as always was getting the motor to track correctly on the arc. This satellite plus 87W together make FTA worthwhile for those who live in an OTA-challenged city like Halifax with only 3 OTA channels.

103W is one of the last few remaning KU band sat that is worth watching.

Its a lot easier to receive since the skew was adjusted to the normal standard.

OTA, CM4221HD, 3410 amp, 4 way split, HW-150 PVR.
FTA, Openbox S9, 33” dish, PLL LNBF. Stab 90HH.

Jorgek: I guess it's just up to you and me. It seems everybody has abandoned this forum. Nobody playing with fta anymore?

Now that I have the motor lined up, NBC, COZI, NHK Japan are all beautifully strong.

My system is still the same, haven't made any changes in a while...
Most recent change was probably last fall, ran several hundred feet of new SC Coax thru my yard and in to my house.
Needed to be done as the old stuff was like 20 years old...

Finally, just about used the rest of that reel last week to run new downlead coax for my OTA antenna system to my basement.

C/Ku BUD from 127W to 55W...

a Fixed Primestar 84e antenna @ 103 W
Some PC based Sat tuners...
Prof 7500, TBS 5520SE (this can do DVB-S2x), DVBSKY S960, Geniatek hdstar,
An old Skystar sumthin or other with an early STB0899 Demod...
various STBs... 3 in use..

Nice system. It's worth having a dedicated fixed dish for 103W. Global Fashion channel disappeared yesterday. Since I got my motor hitting 103W just right, the quality of all channels on this satellite is good and stable all day long.
