At 119° transponders 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 are spot beam transponders that do not hit the entire country. Click on the EKB logo on the top of this page and go to the spot beam map to see what you should be getting.

See ya
For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!
