Well done with your install!!  The weather does look pretty mucky up there.

Ku Band seems to work better is bad weather than Ka does.  We've had pretty foul weather down here the last few days and Ku has stayed on for longer periods.  Ka was very unstable in heavy cloud and rain.

Hope the weather improves soon.  I hear today that most of the UK is expecting snow, even London had some yesterday, so maybe a white Christmas this year.

There are also some install picts on our website which you might like to look at.  Some difficult installs in very mountainous regions are also shown.  The elevations do look a bit weird but it works.  Details are always taken from Eric's website and then we peak up from there.  You could try peaking up the signal quality when the weather has subsided - may find you get an improvement.

Once again congrats!!

Stephanie, Broadband Algarve.

It seems you are close to Keith. Look at our install in Cap de Creus today (NE Spain) or the one we did two weeks ago in Marbella (S Spain).

...
Cap de Creus, Channel Master dish.

...
Marbella, original Ku dish.

Our elevation is about 32, I think yours should be close to 17/18. I have send some pointing info by mail to you.

I will send you the requested HEX file for EB3a by email.
