I moved the antenna down the roof line, Went through the adjustment process.. max signal I can get is 82 using the Acutrac22. I have a basic Modle D10-300 receiver and when it goes through the set up process here is what it finds for the three locations.
101 all zero EXCEPT T28=82, T30=82 and T32=96
119 all are ZERO
110 all three are 96.

I set the antenna type to 3LNB oval?

Any help would be appreciated.

When Aligning the dish are you peaking it to the 119 bird for I rember something about that is what has to be done.

If you are peaking the dish to 101 or 110 that is probably your problem.

I believe the AT9 lines up on the 101?

I went back to the roof.. Figured I might have the dish pointing at the wrong satellite.
Here is what I did. I have a Silva map compass that I've been using.. And I notice it is off if I get too close to the dish, so I have to stay a few feet away. I took a 5' piece of string and a nail too the roof along with the compass. I pulled the string through the hole in the center of the mount and then tie the nail to the back side. Pulling the string taught I, and keeping it centered I then aligned the compass so it was parallel to the string. From this I figured to be aiming at around 220 degrees not even close to the 206 that I should be.. So this afternoon I'll start again from scratch.

28, 30 and 32 are the transponders on the 110. The 110 LNB converts these so they show as 8,10 and 12. The 110 is picking up transponders from the 119. Your 119 LNB is aimed in the dirt. Add five degrees elevation to the dish and go left.

Thanks samrs.. I hadn't had the chance to get up on the roof till this afternoon.. I pretty much did what you said.. I raised the elevevation about 5 degrees and then using my string method started with the dish in the correct azimuth.. Well at least closer then before. Now I have between between 96 and 86 on the three satellites and most all trasponders. I'm using a new reciever I got for free from D* after complaining that I have been a customer since 93 or so. It'll be nice to have something other than local stuff to watch.

Thanks again for everyones help.. I still plan on running new cable to shorten the length by 25' or more.
