Re: Solar outage SNR

David,

I don't have a TBS receiver, ???

Thanks for the useful links.

My outage 'SNR drop' is longer on the west side of the dish compared to the east.
I put that down to the fact that the shadowing of the dense fir tree ahead of my dish being only a 'couple' of degrees off (to the east of) 10 degrees E.

So it shadows the easterly side lobe pick-up?

Regards,
John.

You've just got time to set up that TBS/BDADataEx monitoring PC!

The (theoretical) angle between the the first points (cones) on either side
on the dish aiming point where the dish gain is zero (well, minimum).
