Your readings are good, far better than many people have unfortunately. Very slight tweaking could bring them up a few points. If you are not experiencing what I would call early rain fade, you might just leave them as theya re.

That's why I'm asking. I'm getting rain fade on Locals & HD channels. Other channels are fine when it starts to rain.

Several folks here have been looking at the evan/odd disparity of TP's (which you exibit on 103c and 99c) and the fix is likely a 1/2 to 3/4 turn up in elevation of the dish.

Yes, try adjusting the elevation, via the elevation fine adjustment screw, until you reach the peak (highest number that you can get) on one of the 103c TPs.

Loosen the elevation lock down bolts before making the adjustment and then, lock them back down.

After fine tune (I guess this is the best I can get)

99(c)
89 95 86 91 91 94 88 92
92 93 88 92 95 95

99(s)
x 60 94 76 49 15

103(c)
89 91 86 89 89 88 87 90
89 88 89 88 91 89
95 na na na na 95

Should I leave it alone now?
