Surprised it would be so strong. There doesn't seem to be much tropo tonight - none of the usual tropo suspects are there (WFXP, WJET, WKBN, WTOL, etc.).
As I was watching Route 66 around 3AM on Me, I watched as WOIO's signal went from 70 down to less than 30 (which yeilds no signal), on the other hand at the same time WVPX was over coming in at 90-95% & the Jesus Channel was @ 80% ... funny about 49, at this time was only around 20%. This was Via the Zenith 900 & the Attic antenna.
As close as I am, I haven't seen CFPL D, I imagine they null each other out under these conditions.

My Zenith 900 always pauses at RF 7 during a search, yet haven't seen WCDN D since June of 2009... only lasted 1 day.

That means, if you have a clear view looking southwest, you're good for 125 degrees west... Create, PBS East, PBS West, OETA (Oklahoma), and Montana PBS. The satellites are typically 20-45 degrees above the horizon here in Ohio.
At 87 degrees west, you can watch Louisiana PBS and its subchannel LPB2. I think the Pentagon Channel is at 101 degrees west. The English version of the Chinese CCTV is on 95 west. RT news (RT) is on 97 west. I think Retro TV is still on 83 west. There's some NBC feeds on 72 west, but to get all these channels at different satellites, you would need a motorized dish.
Last I checked, Me-TV and This TV are on C-band, which means you need one of those ridiculously large dishes to receive these. Another important fact if you're considering it... you need a receiver capable of DVB-S2 if you want to watch the PBS channels.
All I'd want would be the Networks, I was looking at a listing, something like 200 something, I only have a clear shot south if I mount in my patio,, not sure if I can get high enough to get it over my roof. I noted my neighbors have their pay dishes both South & Southwest, some pointed at buildings & trees (??)
