    I just received my accutrac22 today and did a few tweaks before dark.

    I now have the following readings:

    101 all signals mid to upper 90's with a few 100's

    110 96 95 97

    119 mid to upper 90's with a few 100's

    99b 78 60 82 60 20

    I think someone told me this was a DC spot-beam? I live in Baltimore County

    103a 84 88 0 95 84 85

    103b 91 88 90 87 88 86 87 85
    87 84 87 83 87 86
    91 94



    With these settings should I try and tweak some more? Also not sure how to switch to 119 to check the tilt as the videos show? Is 119 the 22hz tone and w/o is 101?

    The directions with the meter were kinda vague.

    Thanks for your help...so far you guys have been great

    Yeah the 22Khz tone is for the 119. But with the slimline just stick to the preset tilt for your area and it will work just fine.

    You can try to tweak it a little more to see if you can get them a little higher. However, mid 80s to mid 90s isn't bad.

    yes to some degree, since that would be where hd lcls would be coming from, in your area. unless u dont get hd lcls then no i wouldnt worry about it to much until d11 goes up :)

    the 99 covers central and eastern time zones, and the 103 covers the mountain and pacific time zones. Except the 103b which is a conus and covers everyone
