Odd looking constellation for sure. I can see both signals in Crazyscan's spectrum plot but no lock with the TBS 6925. Not for lack of signal, the 4120 is especially strong.

I can see a peak on CrazyScan's spectrum plot but the TBS 6925 wont' tune anything...I"m seeing that  on the horizontal side.

Just reading through this thread for the first time.  I was wondering how it is locking the 16APSK signals compared to the S2 8PSK stuff?  Is it necessary to have a larger dish?

How is the TBS 6925, does that work well for the 16APSK?  I've seen in mentioned throughout this thread.

I can't lock this one.
AMC 6
3704 V 2595
Constellation looks like some variant of QPSK.

I can't lock it with any of my cards, sometimes I get the "birdshot constellation" and sometimes the same as you got. Maybe its ACM/VCM

I just went through the freqs using the direct source, and got slightly different results.

Freq      BEFORE ..............................................NOW

3943  FLAGlER
.............................................    Flager
3942 .............................................................    Dania
3940...............................................................   Bluff's run
3939  PARX
..................................................   ZIA Park
3937  ZIA PARK...........................................   .......
3936 ..............................................................   Black screen
3935  SUFFOLK DOWNS.............................  Presque Isle
3933  Presque Isle Downs & Casino..................  Hoosier Park
3932 .................................................................  Prarie Meadows
3931  ? Test pattern........................................... ..........
3930  AJAX Downs............................................  .......
3929  Fort Erie Race Track.................................. ........
3928  Delaware Park..............................................  .......
3927 .....................................................................  ?? Datona Beach
3925  ? black screen ?........................................... Birmingham Dog racing
3924  ? Austrailian racing ?..................................... Australian Racing
 
Probably the reason that it changes is that tracks are finished racing for the day and new ones(ie. night ones) are taking their place

I just found this on AMC 9 @ 83 degrees West.
3860 V 20841
DVB-S2 16 APSK
8/9 FEC
Pilot ON

Can't view anything on my Prof 7500.

I think this might be from SES 2 as it moves to replace AMC 3.
SES got approval to activate transponder 8 during relocation to download data for the Air Force prior to arrival at 87 degrees West.  I don't know where SES 2 actually is now, so perhaps it's something else.  We will see if it moves to another satellite location.

There is also another signal on Transponder 8 at:
AMC 9
3876 V 1000

I can't lock it.

It is SES 2.
It's now at 84° West.
I had to move the dish West of AMC 9 to maximize the signal this morning.
According to their FCC filing, SES 2 should be moving at a rate of 1.3° per day and should arrive at 87° West by October 27th.

I'm getting both of these signals at 87W now, both of them are strongest on my 87 position, if I move the dish either way, the signal drops off. Can't lock the 3876 signal, but the constellation looks like 16APSK, at least most of the time it does, sometimes its qpsk, or just "birdshot" constellation.

It looks like it is not quite there yet on the BLSA.  I have to move it to the East of AMC 3 to maximize the signal.  Should be there for sure tomorrow though.

The signals on Transponder 8 are still active on SES 2.
3860 V 20841
DVB-S2 16 APSK
8/9 FEC
Pilot ON

Can anyone tell if this is video or data?

This is the Air Force CHIRP transponder.
More info on CHIRP here:

Crazyscan shows it as being "Continuous", which means it can't be decoded by normal means.


EDIT: Recorded a bit of it, and looked at it in a binary editor, and it was just that, a bunch of binary data. No text or anything that I could figure out.
TSREADER doesn't even show any PIDs since it isn't regular transport streams.

Not sure if this is a 16APSK but G3C 95W 3900 V 1836  Roberts horseracing feed.  Found with an Openbox doing a blind scan.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
