The Ku feed??
It's there, but seems a little weaker than usual here.
Maybe about 2 dB lower SNR than usual.
Usually about 13 dB snr here, closer to 11 dB right now.

Edit: 8PSK at FEC 5/6 will fail at 9.4 dB

Is it not spring enough now?

Today, quite a bit north of you, it is 3 degrees and calm. I would not hesitate to drag out my stuff to play satellite outdoors.

The ground looks wet & its cloudy. Looks like it can rain at any time. Plus, im lazy.

I need to move a TV, Fta Box, Cables & etc. It would take an hour of my time. To do everything.

And that is why I like to use PC based satellite tuners.
Being PC based, everything remains in the house except the wrenches...all it takes is a phone to monitor the signal quality remotely as adjustments are made.

Be even nicer if there was an app to use the smart phone as a signal meter.
That's available (or at least, was) for EBSPro. It can continuously speak the C/N (aka S/N) ratio for a given transponder so you have your hands free for adjusting.
