    It’s been a while. Very strong signal recently -all channels fine – even ITV HD. I don’t know whether the problems I had back in the summer were just due to a weak signal, or a faulty Hamma diseqc unit. It just stopped working a couple of weeks ago so I replaced it with this: https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B002BZHWRQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, and some of the cable I was using on the roof. Seems to make a big difference. Makes me wonder about diseqc switches, how long they last and how much signal you lose.

    Signal very high just now… possibly the strongest since the new Satellites went into service. The million dollar question is…. will it last?

    Hi Nag…. I tried out quite a few 2\1 Diseqc Switches …(But not the Axing Switch you now have)!….The bigger Hamma waterproof Blue ( 2 have failed over the last 10 years or so) and The Schwager (that looks identical to your Axing switch ) switches seemed the lowest loss switches i tried …Bot  the really Small Opticum and other similar really small identical looking switches were useless !

    Great signal at the mo ..All channels 24/7 …apart from Kiss and The Box music channels that disappear at 6pm ish…….

    Sorry no longer able to post my CNR plots on Robs but here are some spot values of 6 transponders measured at midday on 1st February 2016 and 2017 respectively:

    10758V: 15,4 – 15,5 dB
    10847V: 14,8 – 14,4 dB
    10964H: 15,2 – 15,4 dB
    10994H: 14,3 – 14,7 dB
    11097V: 13,4 – 13,4 dB
    11126V: 13,8 – 14,3 dB

    2017 values generally slightly higher but effectively no real difference. I will do another spot check at 8pm today.
