    While doing a signal check this morning after some nasty storms last night, i am noticing that on my 99/103 Sats my even transponders are about 5-7 points lower then my odd. 101 is fine I have a SWM set up...

    Portland,...
    Sometimes a little bit of missalignment will affect the evens (or odds) first.

    Ok, Well this is driving me nuts. My 103cb all transponders are 89-95. For some reason my 103ca transponders 17-24 are all around 85. 1-16 are between 90 and 95

    Those are fine signals. Why is it making you nuts?

    Well either due to the heat or a slight move, everything was 90+ at one point. Also throwing me off is why is one of the 103 Sats lower then the other.

    I had a similar signal strength issue some months ago. Only 7 or so % points low on 103 and only on the even transponders. I kind of ignored it until a few months later I started losing channels in the afternoons (but not every afternoon) that would come back that evening or night. It took me a while to see the "afternoon" issue because it was intermittant but I finally determined a cool weather to hot weather affect every few days was the issue. After checking all connectors and swapping feeds from the dish, everything pointed to the LNB. I ordered a replacement LNB from Solid Signal for my 5LNB Slimline AU-9 and all my issues went away...no more "even" low signals and no more loss of signals in the hot afternoons.

    The 103ca and 103cb are from different sats. D10 was in transit recently and has just gotten back to it'ss home working position. You maystill need a small tweak to your alignment to get both the D10 and D12 signal at optimum strength.

    It's a lnb issue if it's not causing any problems like searching for signal i wouldn't worry about it.
