New SES-2/North America Frequency: 12058.1 MHz

The frequency is changing now. Please tune to 12058.1 MHz if you are receiving from SES-2.

We are back on at this frequency.

We are about 3 dB lower than before. I was told that there was a miscalculation made on our previous contract and the current power level is what we should have been at all along. Sad panda.

Changes made on Dreamcatcher V3.05 and signal back. Looking good. Ken


… having i little issue getting the new frequency entered in to the dreamcatcher 4 where when i convert the mhz to Hz which gives me 12058100000 then enter the number it comes back with a crazy incorrect number of 4294967295 what am i doing wrong here…

Sat down at my computer and looked over at my DC and did not see a packet heart beet. Thought I had to go out and clean some snow off the dish - but when I got out there barely any snow on it. Then I checked here. Changed the frequency and back online.

Are you entering it as 12.0581 ?

no this is the dreamcatcher 4

For Dreamcatcher 4, please subtract the LO value of your LNB.

Got it thanks for the needed info Syed with the bullseye lnb that i have in use

Changed up to the new freq, all is working well. Lower signal, but acceptable.

Is it exactly 3 lower than before?

Speaking of SNR here. It may vary slightly, but mine was averaging about +7 most days including this morning, and today after the frequency change appears to be averaging about +4. I have seen it on the old frequency as high as +9 at times, but running in comparison with @kenbarbi, the fluctuations have been uniform in both his unit and mine. Ken’s SNR usually runs 2.5 to 3 higher than mine (dish antenna size differences, etc), but normally track linearly up or down. Rssi is running -67 for mine, Ken at -70 currently. Not a big change there.

If you have a Bullseye LNB, I “think” the setting on Dreamcatcher 4 prototype should be 2308100000 to start with. Not that mine (with Dish 500 dish) is working yet, but I am getting Packets with CRC and Header errors. -15 SNR and -79 RSSI. (was +3 to +7 SNR before change.)

@BillMc If you were previously getting +3 for SNR, then my guess is that there is a bit of frequency offset. Can you trying changing the frequency +/- in 10 kHz increments?

I finally found the signal at:
2308260000 (calculated 2308100000)
1 to 2 dB SNR and -75 RSSI. Thanks…I just had to be persistent.
