i was wondering if any of you guys have noticed a change in the signal strengths on the 99 and 103 sats the last few days.

i'm in ft lauderdale so i get my local hd's off the 99 sat.....transponder 2 and usually it has signal strengths in the 95-98 range. the 103 sat however i had been getting only signals in the 70's in the transponders i was able to get. i assumed that b/c i wasnt using the 103.

now i'm only getting low to mid 80's on the sat 99 on the transponder that beams my local hd's and now am able to get every transponder on the 103 satellite at between 95-100 signal strength.

we've had some bad storms down here so i was just wondering if anyone else had noticed this before i start thinking my dish was moved a bit from the bad storms. all other satellites are at the same signal strengths between 95-100. most are 100.

The 99 and 103 are much more touchy to align than the other older sats.. so it wouldn't surprize me if your dish moved just a little..

MRV was all that's left on my wishlist (wishlist done) :D
