Those actually are pretty good numbers. My guess is the 15's and 57 are spotbeams aimed at your neighboring DMAs. Now, if they hold up during bad weather, you're gold.

Mine didn't fine tune using the approved procedure, but at least he peaked it higher (and perhaps good 'nuff) when I prompted him.

Cheers,
Tom

The ones not listed on the Transponder tables are local spotbeams, and likely don't apply to you at all. Lyngsat has a more complete listing of whose locals are on which transponders. You should be able to see if you need a particular one or not.

The real test is poor weather, especially to the south and slightly west. If your signals fall off sharply in a medium rain, you're not aligned properly.

Cheers,
Tom
