    BTW. When I got up at 6am today the channels we lose at night were all there. Don’t know when they came back, but as my hols are over I am up at 5am tomorrow morning ;( so I’ll have a look.

    [quote=10372]Caz………would you really recommend a Gibertini..?……….after my and your experiences with the Gibby 150 cm …i would personally avoid Gibertini dishes……. [/quote]

    Well, it is the cheapest option. If money doesn’t count i would go with a laminas. Actually, i would recommend a 180cm dish to be safe.

    According to this map: http://goo.gl/maps/sDW4Z you are almost in the same position as i am (Elmshorn). It’s questionable how accurate the drawing is that far in the north, but at least in north germany it has proven to be pretty useful.

    Your daily signal wobble will probably look very similar to mine. See attachment. my times are UTC. If you have a receiver which produces usefule signal levels you can compare them with mine to figure out if it looks similar for you. If that is the case you can estimate how many db’s are missing.

    I still have a freeview box sat in the guest bedroom, that has the signal intensity and quality, I will try to see what happens there over a period of time. At the moment the intensity on 4+ is 86% but the quality is dropping to around 60%.

    As I recall it, the intensity is the same as it was the other day, when I fine tuned the dish so it is appears that it is the quality that drops below useful.

    Thanks for the chart, I will get back here when I have a bit more info.

    Is your Triax a TD110…?…..the one that has a hinge or pivot for the LNB arm…?………..I remember reading (on another site)….that for best reception……a Euro coin  or similar ….needs to be wedged in the hinge somehow…….for better reception……..

    edit….found where i read about the Triax TD110…http://www.satellites.co.uk/forums/threads/triax-td110-lnb-arm-position.157451/

    Very interesting. Mine is a TDS110, but from what I read on the address you provided the arm is connected in the same way as on the TD110.

    I’ll definitely give it a whirl.

    On E4+1 signal intensity has now dropped to 71 % and the quality is hovering around 23 %. So close and yet so far away..
