30 June 2007
Daystar, Genesis, EWTN, BEN all on 12523 H 27500 2/3
Many of you are not getting these channels
reason: All Christian channels except two are on a different satellite from Sky channels
Sky is 28.2 degrees East of South and Christian is Eurobird at 28.5 degrees East of South
The problem is the transponder 12523 H which is less powerful than the others.
Moving the dish by .3 of a degree to the right or 1,000th of a revolution has cured it for most people.
Never attempt to touch the dish unless it is absolutely safe to do so.
We suggest you just touch the right edge with someone watching the TV
Remember this will only work if you are getting all other channels.
