    I'm thinking it still is within its normal drift range of +/- .05°.

    Cheers,

    Maybe they're practicing how to do parallel parking. :D

    Probably a fine tune location exercise...must be getting very close. :)

    Riddle me this people... I was under the impression that CH 499 is looking for transponder 17 off the new SAT D10. That's why we get "Searching for Signal."

    Is this correct?

    It's probably looking for some sort of signal from D10. Whether that is indeed something off of TP 17 remains to be seen.

    It would seem that you have stumbled on to something... But for those of use with H20's that still seem to show N/A for all transponders, or above 17 if there are no spot beams... Why wouldn't it at least show 0? I see that at least on my receiver, starting at 4am mdt, 499 shows tba...

    oh and I should mention even with everything else plus 0x202a software I still get a blank screen... no searching for signal... but d* tells me all is well... h20-100...

    It is definitely tp 17. Take the BBCs off and tp 17 has a reading and you get 499 from the Spaceway sat. Put the BBCs on and you should get 0 for tp 17 and 499 should say searching.

    I guess you could also say that tp 17 is CONUS.

    Why need to look at other sat, if the ch [499] exist on tp17 on EXISTING SW sat ?!
    Twisted logic?

    yes so we need .2 to make 102.6 right

    Actually, IIRC the BBC boosts the frequency from the 250-750MHz range up to the 950-1450MHz range. If so, when we are seeing the "Your BBCs are missing" screen, that would be from 110°/119° not from 103°. Yes the HR20 thinks the transponder is a CONUS transponder at 103°, but if there really were such, we wouldn't need to see a "771 Searching for Signal" as a test passed.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Middle...
    Please at least SCAN the thread before posting. Lyngsat is NOT some end-all, be-all answer. It's just another website collecting info and posting it for the world to see, just like this one. In this case, Lyngsat is wrong.

    And as for why the various tracking sites (like n2yo) are giving different info and the sat is in "reverse" - read the thread.. This has all been gone over in great detail. n2y0 does not update their TLE's more than once a day and often misses the change for a few hours. And the sat is not "in reverse", it's just got an orbital period that is not quite exactly the same as earth's rotational period, so it appears to move a little forward or a little backward - that's why comsats carry fuel - to adjust their orbits as necessary to stay as close to position as possible.

    What is the big deal about 102.6 that is where it is at now for testing give or take .02.
    The big move is when it starts it's slow move towards 102.775 and chances are that will not happen untill Sept 1st.;)
