Not sure if anybody cares but I thought I would post this. I was getting bad signals with the new 99 satellite so I called for a re-alignment. When the tech got here he told me that the 99 wasn't being used but I quickly corrected him and he accepted my correction. He was up on the roof for about five minutes and everything seems better now. The total time was maybe 15 minutes. Here are some before and after pics of my signal strength.

Cool. Improvement for sure. Next time please attach your pics. All these make the page slow to load.
No longer doing DBS work, but missing every moment of it.

I had somewhat similar readings (80s for 103c, 70s for 99c) two weeks ago and I was able to get them both into the 89-96 range.

You'll see your 99 transponders with that consistent 10-15% odd/even disparity when your dish is out of alignment. Good you got it fixed.
