I can receive COZIV TV and other sations fine on SES-3, but I just notice all the NC-1 to NC-8 transponder are completely off the air.

I would like to compare notes with other viewers out there, and see if they're receiving the same outage. I wonder what could've happened?

Up Date. The transponder single just came back online a minute ago at 7:14 PM and min later went off line again. what could be going on?

Thank You.

Julie

The mux is still there, but the signal is very weak.
I can't lock it at only 8.3 dB on my 10 foot Unimesh dish in Northern California.
I think a 1.2 meter dish would be required at this time.

The reason you're getting such a very weak 8.3dB, is the MUX is completely off-line.

I need around 9.5 to 10 dB for reliable reception.

The signal is way down.  Heavy storms rolling through the east may have something to do with it

I wonder if they're having some sort of Technical difficulty. my level is 49% and my quality is 10% on this transponder. in other words my Linkbox 9000 I was telling The transponder with completely off line. just a second ago my single bars came full power.

If I remember right I think this mux is uplinked from Charlotte.  They're getting pounded with heavy rain.

Well after this little hick up, the strength meters are at full power and I can receive all the channels on the MUX.

Photoman I know it's been a few hours since you posted that, those feeds seem to still be down a little bit here on a 1.2m

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!
