Not sure how to read this.:confused:

What about the signal strengths on the 99 and 103 satellites?

Are you having any reception problems?

No signal problems. New roof.Sat. was moved.
I don't know what you mean about the 99 and 103 Sat.
The only thing i see is Sat. 101 - and +

Better if you'll post pictures - your description is ambiguous.

The challenge in doing any review/diagnosis is that each sat has many more transponders than you reported.

There are 3 primary satellite locations - 99, 101, and 103 degrees.

With these multiple sats...to get a valid idea of your readings....the whole list of transponders should be reviewed.

Here's an example...just for the 103 position from one sat (cb) - this signal comes from the D10 satellite.

The + and - next to the 101 is to allow you to change which sat you are getting readings from.

Yes....and the lower ones are to change to view Tuner 1 and Tuner 2 readings.
