i've read in posts and been told on this message board that hd locals are spotbeamed on the 99 and 103 sats. my hd locals are on sat 99 transponder 2. i now have a signal strength of 90 on that one. i get transponder 2, 4, and 6 on sat 99. i discussed this a little bit last nite on here. but i'm still wondering why i'm getting more transponders on the 103 sat now compared to a few days ago....... and all of them at such a higher reading. before the few i got were in the 70's. now i get transponders 1 thru 6 on sat 103 at signal strength between 95-100. before i posted in here a couple of months ago i was only getting 70's on just a few 103 transponders. i posted that because i was concerned when the new sat goes up here soon it will be positioned in the 103 slot. earl i think told me the low signal readings were because of spotbeaming. but now signals 95-100 on transponders and on a sat that isnt spotbeamed to me???? is it possible dtv moved the ft laud/miami hd locals to the 103 sat or something else going on? any feedback would be appreciated. just curious here.
