dolsen: I'm not at home but got my wife to check the sbs channels and she said we still get them. She would definitely let me know if it wasn't working correctly.
Not sure of the signal strength will check when I get home.
This is in Wellington, with a 65cm dish. When I aligned the dish I didn't have a separate signal strength meter but I did have line of sight to the tv, so I set it up to be as strong a signal as possible. It might be that other people need to align the dish more accurately, or, get a bigger dish to get more signal strength.
MINOR STORM WATCH: NOAA forecasters estimate a 10% chance of minor geomagnetic storms on July 7th in response to an incoming CME. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.
mcraenz: It's just one satellite, I didn't think where you were in NZ would make that much difference? Apart from major weather events.
ajw: SBS working again for me in the Hutt Valley off a Sky dish.
xarqi: It looks like you have several receivers attached to your LNB. Is one of them holding the LNB in horizontal polarisation?
