For those living in the Mid -Atlantic area, what is the highest signal I could expect from satellite 129? I live the Southwestern VA, had my 622 installed this week and although I can pick up most of the 129 channels the signals is weak (30-55) because of a tree blocking my dish. On installation day there were still a few leaves on this tree but since then most have come off and the signal strength has gone up some. I find this encouraging because it means the limbs and not the trunks are probably causing the problem which means trimming rather than cutting down the tree (I hope!). The reason I'm looking for the highest signal in this area (I'm assuming the signal from 129 is likely to vary depending on where one lives) is that as I'm working on trimming those branches it would be good to have some signal reference so I'll know if I'm making progress and when I could stop. This tree is about 50' tall and I don't want to be on the ladder any longer than necessary. My dish 1000 is located low on my house (easy access) and I really don't want to change this unless absolutely necessary. I get high 90s from 110 and 119. One more question. I had a dish 500 and the installers disconnected one of the two coax cables I have and installed a separator at the 622. Is this method better, worse, or no real difference from just connecting the two existing cables have. After thinking about it some, they may have used the separator just because it's more common for new installs therefore more customary for them and they had one on the truck. Any thoughts?
