    Hey Waggy, that’s a big number in my friend’s spectrum, but I guess it also depends on distance and depth from the epicentre. Rather than his dishes (satellite and porcelain), he’s been exceedingly happy when his house hasn’t fallen in completely on him a few times – usually overnight. His last was a rather close 6.9. He is mindful that a 7.2 flattened Kefalonia completely in 1953 with hundreds of casualties. It doesn’t half take the gloss off his “Island of Dreams”. I didn’t even know that Spain was also afflicted.

    Has been heads in the clouds/drizzle rain here for a week. Possible clear sky tomorrow late afternoon says my Dutch weather forecast. Let’s see whether we can Pick-up BBC again during the day.

    Beautiful day here in N. Italy, sunny blue sky, lightest of breezes and temperature of 15° in the shade – winter has given us a miss so far this year 🙂 .

    Brill here too near Carcassonne Derek – 20°C and little wind. Gone straight from “can’t be bothered doing anything because it’s too cold” to “can’t be bothered doing anything because it’s too nice”. Any excuse at my age.

    I guess Monty, what you’ve lost in signal this morning (Sun Outage), you’ve made up for in wind down where you are. Bit draughty here.
    PS. What Sun?

    My dish just iced up, covered in a nice knobbly layer of ice.

    Never mind the weather, did you have an earthquake last night Monty? Apparently centred between Quillan and Montségur.

    No, didn’t feel it, but with the House ‘Rocking and Rolling’ in the mad Winds i think it would have needed to be 10 on the Rhicter Scale…

    [quote quote=28278]possibly time to start thinking/planning adding my 2nd LNB “on the squint” to the Gibby for astra 1 19,2 reception…… [/quote]

    Hi Steve, any progress on the squint, or is TUVing the camper van taking priority at the mo??

    Also here, colder than recently but still 15° – cold weekend is forecast but return to warmer weather next week 🙂

    Hi Derek….

    Yes the 2nd LNB for 19.2 has been added …….with 2 metal brackets …carefully bent to the position needed… and a old LNB holder i had bolted on , the cables was already there from when i was using a Octo LNB …….. so cost me nothing 🙂 … …..and works brill…. all 19.2 channels are easy 100Q 🙂 …

    and got a new Opticum 9\16 Multiswitch with 16 outputs of 28.2 and 19.2……… so I can now get rid of the old dish for 19.2 on the house and all the external Diseqc switches ..

    btw …the dish was not moved in any way at all !……..so the 2nd LNB has no affect on 28.2 reception!…..

    Great picture, with a 1.5M dish bet the 19.2E is really bursting at the seams!  … probably reading 200% signal … if it could be read!

    #29831

    Steve ……

    But..less signal than Sky News on 28.2 for example….as the 19.2 LNB is set to the left ….its a compromise…… its not recieving full signal from the 1.5m dish area.!… possibly equivalent to a 80 or 100 cm…not sure ?…

    …sorry  the pic was a bit shit…..Ill do some better pics next week…if it stops raining………

    ok here guys sunny and warm after a total shite week  keep smiling

    Very therapeutic is welding. You’ll be ready for the road then Steve. There’s a vacant slot on the roads now, as I’m just back from a siw week caravan tour. 6012 kms covered, while the caravan (and cat) managed 4329kms. Weather included gales, blizzards, duststorms (off ploughed fields), hard frosts, more gales and of course torrential rains and quagmire . . . . Yes, it must have been the UK, England and Scotland both.

    Sat reception was very sporadic, brill at times but with total failure to gain any picture on some occasions, despite an apparently strong signal, and for no apparent reason. Never got to the bottom of it. More tests required now I’m home. Suspect the ancient LNB.
