In the meantime if someone else can do a similar comparison, comparing the signal levels from a properly aligned AT9 on the 101 bird to the same signal from a standard 18" round dish, at the same site using the same receiver we might be able to start building a case against the desirability (or advisability) of having the AT9, particularly in those areas where OTA reception is available.

Sometimes New isn't always better.

ok, here is is ....

Hey Cap..I live at the New Jersey Shore. I just switched from Dish Network. I think I've only lost the signal about five times a year mostly during thunderstorms. With the new 3 LNBF DTV multi dish and R15 I'm running anywhere from 81 to 100 on 101 on a clear day. I have experienced rain fade during thunderstorms, but signal comes back pretty quickly. it's usually due to the dense cloud cover which occurs before the heavy rain. Can this dish use further tweaking?

1-8 90 82 96 88 87 90 81
9-16 88 88 88 96 90 87 92 84
17-24 90 100 91 92 90 86 91 86
25-32 87 95 92 0 93 86 91 83

Hard to say unless you try. Those signals look pretty good tho.
