|All of the NBC multiplex channels on AMC6 (72W) seem to be out. They were on 12053 V 6890. Anyone know if they'll be back, or if they've been moved? |

|They are still there. NBC on Ch1, CNBC on Ch2, MSNBC on Ch 4|
same coords as you posted
edit: I see what you mean - they were on as I posted at 8:16 and gone at 8:19
They must be tinkering with the feeds setup
There is a feed up right now on 11703 V 3979, if you are trying to lock something 8:21 EST
There is a temporary NBC on AMC 15 12000 V 26040 H.264 HD right now

|I can see the signal on the BLSA, but it looks very weak.|
I'm not able to lock it at this time.
Anyone know where the uplink is located?

|Not getting them here either, low signal. I get that feed on 11703 just fine. |

|it was definitely MIA for a lil while there. Blind scan returned nothing from that transponder, but a few other Vert TPs scanned in. By the time I got done, it was back up. That was ~ 8 - 8:15 pm EST.|
Usually they may go dark when no traffic, but still transmitting. Appeared to me it was down for a few.

|After my last post I did a scan, and the NBC mux is back. |

|I have noticed these glitches too, at some point recently the signal quality and strength were reporting very low but the picture was still stable at 35% Q.|
I also noticed signal drops on other sats, the RTV mux on AMC7-137w was out earlier today but haven't checked it lately. Even some TP's on the G19-97w have been coming and going too. Some quality still reported normal with lots of pixelation. Just plain freaky!
There must be sun flares or some other interference that's affecting more than one, I suppose.

|this tp is currently bouncing between 74% to 87% Q.|
they may be adjusting the beam and what have you.
update: just after posting, the Q has settled to a consistent 75% Q.
I recall the Q strength to be about 56% in the past during normal performance.
another update: I just noticed some spiking to over 80% then back down. I'm in So Cal.

|NBC mux on there was ok till it started it's downward spiral...usually get 70 to 71q on it, but youze correct, it went
down to bouncy 58 and pixellated, then a short bit later, way
down to 56, then gone (openbox said strength 7 which means it's
just below what the S9 will decode but still some signal..ch-1
religious stayed up tho, had to be uplink signal or just selective transponders...solar flares are happening, with the possibility of an X-class as spots rotate to point at earth...
