Can't seem to get SBS one or two from Optus D1 tonight, is anyone else having problems?

A few days ago I needed to re-scan because all SBS channels disappeared.  It turned out that they had been moved to another transponder on D1 (now on 12648 MHz).

Thunderflash: They have always been on 12648, What was the old freq you had them on?

12661 MHz, which I have been watching since early March.  I wonder if that was just a temporary duplicate?

That freq is close, I wonder if you were just getting the edge of 12648 and then it dropped off for some reason.

SBS is a weak frequcency so natrual obstructions including weather and trees will cause the signal to drop off.
