I'll be trying the INVACOM lnb soon. That LNB can pick up anything!! I had to hack a scalar ring to get it to fit (like the old days) but I know that it is a better lnb. I picked up 5 sats between 113w and 123w ....everything but 116.8w so my dish is in the right area now.

It is SNOWING TODAY...so maybe tomorrow.

You CAN receive C-band on a 1.2m dish!

I noticed fox news in that list. What satellite are you receiving it on?
That was a check to see if you were listening. I was referring to the Sunday morning Fox shows such as Chris Wallace on 99W Ku. I see that he has now moved to CNN this year. I don't think I've seen any Fox shows on 99W Ku lately other than the news feeds.

Satellite station disassembled. Next home location will have AMC21 @ 125W as my due south. Edision OS Mio+ receiver for Internet access only. Hauppauge 950Q USB receiver, Clearstream2 antenna, CM-7777 preamp.

The Invacom will have the same signal loss issue if it is designed for an offset dish. Anyway, maybe it will do better than what you have.

I see the cbs and fox feeds on lynsat but have never found anything watchable except for Infowars and JBS, I guess I've never looked at the right time.

There are two Foxedge feeds on 24/7 on 11852 H 6900. But lately, they have been difficult to receive even with a 1.2m dish during parts of the day. Try blind scans of 99W Ku on weekdays in the late afternoon. You may find other feeds then. That's when reporters seem to file stories for the evening news.

The Invacom is AMAZING. I always had trouble with the NBC channels at 103 w because of the unusual skew. I put on the Invacom.............. NO PROBLEM.

Infowars was tricky on 99w, even with my 4 foot dish. Every tiny breeze would drop out the signal. I re-aligned the dish several times.

After my tower fell over, I grabbed the Invacom and put it on my 4' dish WITHOUT ANY ADJUSTMENT. I only guestimated the skew.
INFOWARS HAS BEEN SOLID SINCE without any re-pointing. The Invacom seems to pick up a wider signal.

The INVACOM is AMAZING !

Thanks, I'll give that a try.
