Here in western Newfoundland many of the new channels (eg BBC-C) are breaking up. The weather is fine and regular channels are working 100%???

Thunderstorms passing through the center of the universe,that's the downside to only 1 uplink site.

It was thundering here in Barrie (90 km north).Oh well,it was an educated guess.
Thanks for the weather update.

I have had time now to check signal strength on some of the new channels. Transponder 22 and 14 are down in the 45-48% level. All other channels are running at 70%+. Anybody else experiencing this? This is under clear skies in western Nfld.
