Re: Ku-band strength drop after 12:00 UTC Friday Aug 28

Ian Deans

I am seeing a reduction in my SQ from about 91-94% to 82-85%. My SS is down
from about 59/60% to a steady 58%. I have a fairly long cable run hence the
low SS.

The problem re freezing with no Testbild channel appears to have been
resolved as I tested this last night and again this morning and all OK with
channel not available.

However with no losses today so far it does appear, that as Arne suggested,
probably a change in uplink.

I've not been receiving for a couple of days.
Having read the news, I've just switched on the system and find indeed
lower levels indicated - well, lower SQ.

The DVBWorld readout using a pre-latest GEO shop batch of boxes, I'm
getting SS 70% and SQ 91%.
Previously this was always SS 70 - 71% and SQ 100%.

And, as Ian said, the testbild channel is not active - though trying to
open it didn't freeze the DVBWorld box.

I'll put a digital meter on the downlink later to get more accurate
