 Hi guys.

New guy here, name's Rick and I'm in southern Idaho.

This evening at 5:45 local time, my quest for the elusive 97W 3980H feeds has ended, I PINNED 'EM! [thumb]

I'm running a Winegard CK1088 with the Ajak mount, an early Corotor II outfitted with a good pair of Norsat LNB's from Rick, and my primary receiver is the Linkbox 9000i. I've had the big dish up about a month or so, fairly new at this. Loving it though, great hobby!

I had a bent outer rim piece on my dish. It was likely hit by a mower somewhere through the years. You couldn't see any distortion of the dish by eye, but when putting it back on after I straightened it, one strut moved just slightly - changing the shape of two panels.  Ever so slight, but a good reminder of just how important dish shape is.  It made the difference.

Great site you guys have here - a mountain of know how, for sure.

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!
