    Would someone in the St. Louis area please post their 99 & 103 signal strengths on their 5 LNB slimline dish?

    I've re-pointed the dish twice using the KA/KU guide, but I'm getting poor signals with a clear line of sight.

    101 - 95%
    110 - 95%
    119 - 95%
    99b - 33%
    103a - 55%
    103b - 95%

    Thanks,
    Floyd

    99b and 103a are spot beams, mostly for locals, and you will only get a good signal if one or more transponders are pointed at your area. STL locals come from one or two transponders on the 103a sat. I am sorry that I don't know which transponders on the 103a sat are for STL but if you go to the individual transponder page of the test signal strength menu you should see two or three transponders with 80-90 signal strength readings and these will be your Locals.
    Below is the page for the locals.

    I was primarily asking because I had "searching for sat 771" on the new FSMWHD 647-1 all last night. My locals have been perfect.

    I will post mine when I get a chance to look at the unit. Last night there were big thunderstorms and my HR20 lost signal several times. I just had a re-alignment last week that put me in the 90's on the new 103(b) and 101.

    Sorry, I thought that the request for 99 & 103 signal strengths indicated a LCL's problem.
