    Quick look at CONUS signals from 110w in Hawaii all are in the mid 60-low 70 range with a 30" Dish.

    Just checked 5505 ESPN-HD still links to Tp.12 Spotbeam.

    It's that 8PSK thing.

    As someone else mentioned, the 3 you marked with " ??? " are all lower because they are 8PSK.

    But what accounts for the other variations ?

    This would be a good question for the Tech Forum, except that it no longer exists. :(

    Anyone know anything about that ? All the transponders of a satellite should be the same point in space relative to the receiving dish. It seems hard to believe that a several hundred million dollar electronics package could have that much variation in power output. So what causes it ?

    Measurements taken shortly after a hot switch without any load optimization.
    Also, LNBFs and dish characteristics are not perfect.

    Even after the bird warms up there will be variations between transponders ... it doesn't bother me as long as the numbers are generally high.

    A friend of mine received a phone call from this number 8181141414
    Supposedly to ask about the impact in signal Strength of E*11 in Mexico City.

    Anynody here that knows where that number is from?
    They also mentioned to him that they were sending receivers to Mexico City
    thxs in advance.

    It's my understanding that in the three largest cities of Mexico (Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey), the area code is two digits and phone numbers are eight digits. The area code for Monterrey is 81. However, 818 is a Los Angeles region area code.

    Whatever it is, it isn't local (to the US).

    US phone numbers do not have a 1 as the fourth digit ... that number would be written area code 818 114-1414 ... 114-1414 could not exist as a local number. (Since 7 digit dialing is permitted in 818, dialing that local number would not be possible.)

    It is possible that the number is a circuit ID for a trunk or a misprogrammed phone system (setting your own CID can be fun). But the more I look at it the more I think "run away, run away".

    phrelin is probably on the right track with it being a Mexican number. Googling the number itself finds this thread (posted an hour ago? - good Google!). Monterrey is confirmed as area code 81.

    From Puerto Rico:
    4.5 ft. Dish (just installed, could be better tweaked, haven't got the time to do it yet)
    new signal meter

    Order is TP -- Signal before (last weeks) -- Signal after (today)

    01--34--77
    02--25--84
    03--14--87
    05--35--77
    06--25--82
    07--0--0 (Receiver's not HD)
    08--24--80
    09--36--75
    10--00--83
    11--30--82
    13--00-00 (Receiver's not HD)
    14--22--82
    15--24--80
    16--26--80
    17--00--00 (Receiver's not HD)
    19--34--86
    21--41--89
    22--23--80
    24--26--56

    In my HD receiver, with a 6 footer, everythings around the 80s and 90s, except tps 7, 13 and 17 which are around 70's.

    why does 8PSK lower the transponder strength reading?

    Everthing in Mexico has gone to 10 digit + long distance prefix when required (01 for national long distance, 001 for US long distance). Nationwide rollout was a year or so ago. Depends where you are, you may be able to drop some of the leading numbers when in your local calling area, but all numbers are listed and work with the full 10 digits.
