I had the signal trouble weeks ago got it back by adjusting the vertical horizontal polarization skew.

We talked about the problems with receiving these signals a lot in the above link. If you look at my pictures in post #75 you can see what the issue is with these tps and how narrow and close together they are. This is why poor quality junk for a dish is what is causing most folks issues. Upgrade to a bigger better dish and follow proper alignment rules and most of you would have less problems.IMG_6452.jpg IMG_6452.jpg

They all seem fine here. Only a PT7.5 here in the yard.
Looked thru some of your previous posts, and I see a lot of "not receiving this posts", which leads me to your issue is in the yard... this post here is pretty telling of ur predicament.

https://rickcaylor.websitetoolbox.com/post/dish-size-10109249?pid=1308335717

IMO, a well tuned CBAND dish of almost any size commonly found out there should be able to receive these skinny dvb-s qpsk signals. So the fact ur still having trouble tells me either your dish is in really rough shape, or it's in decent shape but not aligned well, or both.
Step1, Maybe post a pic of your antenna from a couple different perspectives so we can see what it is, and what kind of shape it's in.
Step 2 would be do the string test on it to see if it's out of shape.

No issues here! Maybe you need to tweak your setup.

I can promise you that sat is not changing. Can also promise you that you have a poorly tuned dish. {lease do not blame the satellite for human error, the signal is there. The problem is at your end.

I've been actively watching that group of channels over the years and I've noticed changes in both signal strength and availability.They come and go and take turns getting stronger then weaker.

Over night H &I east magicly appeared. No adjustments any where just reciever turned off and on.

Dunno,  they generally come in OK.  In the past couple months I've lost them at times then they pop back in on their own.  I took the SA out to the dish recently but was unable to get anymore signal.   The signal I get varies by about 0.5dB from when it's locking and when I can not lock.  I thought perhaps TA, but if others are noticing signal variance then that likely is not the case.  Most of you will be sitting in a footprint that is 6dBW hotter than my location.

I'm up almost 4dB from yesterday.  Our poorly tuned dishes with substandard LNBs have miraculously fixed themselves.

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!
