I can only get about +3.1 on channel 290 and +4.4 on channel 292 when fine tuning Diagnostic C on my 401 reciever. I live in NS and am using the 75E dish.

Should I be getting better signal quality?

I'm using the 60e dish and I get 9.5 on 291 and 9.7 on 293.
Could it be the western beams are stronger than the east?

Funny you get those results...

I will check mine when I get home, but I know that the signal quality in option 6 is barely 70 for e2.
I'm in NB.

291 - Eb/No = 7.0 (overcast) (FEC = 3/4)
293 - Eb/No = 11.7! (holy doodle) (note, FEC? Ithink = 3/5)
you know, the fraction on line 1 of diagnostic C.

OK cut down a tree!
290 = 55 signal quality +5.5 Diag C
292 = 68 signal quality +6.1 Diag C

Still seems low though. Any others in Nova Scotia have such low numbers?
