Title: Ka service in Afghanistan only works at night
Post by skymoe8381 on Mar 24th, 2009 at 12:23pm
Need some help figuring out why my service only works at night.  Have a TS2 Ka Band, 1.2m dish with iDirect 3100 modem.  Receive voltage at night is between 16v - 18v.  SNR is usually between 7db - 10db.  From approximately 1 to 2 hours after sun up till approximately 1 to 2 hours after sundown my receive voltage is between 4v - 13v.  SNR usually drops to about 4db.

I've tried repointing this dish a million times without any improvements.  I have swapped out my cables.  Running out of ideas to fix the issue.

FYI for future reference.  Found the problem was caused by the base mount not being level.  Once I leveled the mount I saw an immediate improvement in SNR.  System hasn't gone down since.
