Euronews & Al-Jazeera problems

My Euronews signal is MUCH better than any other freesat one (that I test for)
BUT I have a client who’s is weaker and by the time it goes through the surge protector it is too weak to see
Currently Lynsat reports:
Astra 2F 28.2°E 12663 H DVB-S MPEG-2 22000 5/6

I read this:

Euronews is not a Freesat channel as far as I am aware it is a sky FTA 12560 V 27500 2/3 according to lyngsat however that frequency is very close to the DECT phone frequency problem

Hi band problems:-

12480 to 12500 MHz (10600 MHz LO) IF is 1880 to 1900 MHz

try disconnect the power from your DECT phone and scanning again

Large Dishes

It is all very well having a larger dish but you have to remember it has a greater windage, so unless it is positioned somewhere sheltered it should be made of something non-flimsy and attached to a post that doesn’t squash when you tighten it.
