When you are adjusting dish position, should you choose the transponder with the highest signal strength? What does it mean when there is a great variation in strength? like some in the 40's, some in the 50's, some in the 60's, some in the 70's and some in the 80's.


thanks

Try to make sure the SS is pretty much constant on all Tps

Is this DirecTV or DISH network? DirecTV's 101 degree core satellite slot has spot beams on transponders 4, 12, 18, 20, 26 and 28. These will vary greatly from one location to another and should be ignored when aiming. My aiming technique preference is to try to bring up the weakest of the other transponders.


If this is DISH Network, you should ignore its 119 degree satellite's transponders 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 and also try to peak the weakest of the others. If you post your location, dish antenna size and brand of DBS equipment, other Forum members can tell you what they are getting for signal strength readings in similar situations.
