I am having signal issues on the HD stations.

Signal Strengths:

101: High 60's - low 90's (mostly in the 80's)
110: 72-83
119: Low 90's
99c: High 50's - 70's
103ca: mostly 0's
103cb: odd's are 25, evens are 0

A tech was here today and said the tree was blocking the sat. This issue has started in the last 2 weeks. The second image shows the view from the LNB.

Do you think that the tree could be blocking the signal so much on that one transponder? I was not home when the tech came (wish I was though).

It sure looks like the tree is in the way. Is there another location you could move the dish to?

I would say the tree is blocking your signal. It does not come straight in to the dish but down at an angle. I can't believe someone installed it there. Hopefully you can move the dish back or elevate to go over the tree. Good luck

That tree needs to be trimmed. But, the best solution is to move the dish.
