    Since you live in the tropics your rain is probably stepwise from light to holy hell!!!!

    I have seen low 80s versus 90s make a difference in Maryland. True when it drops to zero, it drops. But the same storms I had problems with last year with high 70s to low 80s are not a problem now that I am in high 80s low 90s. (almost everyone gets a range of 5-10 points on transponders).

    Yup....I've seen it happen at least 3 times firsthand with friend's locations.

    In my case...earlier in the year...during a Dish alignment (after 6 years), they finally convinced me to replace my AT-9 with a new Slimine....that too was good for adding about 4 points to every transponder.

    Despite the best equipment, connections, SWiM, DECA, and Dish....your signal will only be as good as your LNB. Guess I don't' have to convince you, huh? :D

    - perhaps it's not bad, but got little degradation ? 10% is not that bad.

    Lancaster,...
    Now that D10 and D12 are both in service, will we see any changes to D* plans regarding HD national or local markets not being serviced yet? I would assume prior announcements for new cities for HD locals and national HD channels were based upon on D10 or D12 being in service, but now that the D10 fix was successful, I would guess there is a lot of available bandwidth.

    I'd still like to see the CW and PBS affiliates added for the Harrisburg/Lancaster, PA market.

    There are several specific threads for that topic, available if you do a search under - HD locals.

    Here's one of the better ones...

    Wait, I haven't been here in awhile..

    I thought D12 fell out of the sky, D10 broke down and was unrepairable, and all of the HD-DVR's blew up.

    You mean, everything is actually fine...?

    While there's a few that may have made it sound that way...

    It's all good...in fact they managed to get D10 "ameliorated" to its full signal capacity. D12 has been fine from the get go.

    You forgot to mention that D13 never even made it to the launchpad ;)

    Now, you mentioned the time frame ... I would say yes.
