    I was asked to post a quick poll to get an idea of what users are seeing as far as current transponder levels on 61.5 west.

    If you have an active 61.5 feed, and would be so kind to participate, I need to know what model receiver your using to check the signal, your location, and each transponder level you can see. Yes we realize not everyone will be able to see every transponder at this time.

    As an example:

    DP811 @ 61.5
    Rockford Illinois - DMA

    TP2 = 97
    TP4 = 0
    TP6 = 104
    TP8 = 110
    TP10 = 90
    TP12 = 111
    TP14 = 113
    TP16 = 93
    TP17 = 0
    TP18 = 112
    TP20 = 106
    TP22 = 108
    TP25 = 110
    TP26 = 100
    TP27 = 86
    TP28 = 0
    TP29 = 93
    TP30 = 88
    TP31 = 89
    TP32 = 104

    Thanks,

    If you have multiple receivers to check from, it is preferred that the information is obtained from an 811, if you do not have an 811 next in line would be a 921, then a 6000, and then a 942. ;)

    Thanks

    And yes, my 921 reads signal strengths from TR 1, 3, 5 and 7. I should note that these readings are taken from a 24" dish pointing at 61.5, not a normal 18" dish.

    I used a 4000 to point the 61.5 and then hooked it back up to the SW64 for the 811 and 921 readings.

    I believe - 4000 only goes to a 100 anyhow (on that scale) .. where your others .. probably go to 125

    If you have only one satellite 61.5 then you could temporary select 148 and measure signal at transpoders 1,3,5,7.
