I'm willing to bet that the TS isn't in a city where those transponders make any difference for his SD locals.

That looks excellent to me. You should not have any problems with those readings.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks he can ignore the 0's on the 119 spots.

Of course he can ignore them. They are spotbeams. Your posts said that you could ignore the 119 signals, not just the spotbeams.

Thanks everyone... Just wanted to hear some opinions on it since I seem to really suffer from rain fade on HD channels. It doesn't seem to take much of a rain to cause the dreaded 771 error for me.

What market are you in? Do you get rain fade easily on locals, nationals, both?

Knoxville, TN is my market... rain fade is a problem for both.

In his DMA, you do receive all SD MPEG-2 locals from the 119° spot beam satellite (TPN's 25 & 29), channels 30 and 44 are only available in SD MPEG-2 via the 119°, they are not simulcast on any other satellites.

The signal strength spreadsheet that you posted earlier in this thread is no longer available (at least to me).   Could you please repost on this thread?   Thanks.
