72.7 TP 15 should be 43-51, TP 17 should be 48-56, 19 should be 44-52, 21 should be 48-57.

77 TP 13 should be 43-53, TP 16 should be 43-52, 20 should be 44-51, 21 should be 44-53.

72.7 TP 15 should be 43-51, TP 17 should be 48-56, 19 should be 44-52, 21 should be 48-57.

77 TP 13 should be 43-53, TP 16 should be 43-52, 20 should be 44-51, 21 should be 44-53.

I just checked my eastern arc dish that I had to re-install after 2008 Hurricane Ike and I got the following signal strengths on those same transponders this morning at around 8:00am sunny skies.

61.5 sat

10 - (should be 45-52) My signal 56. Exceeds expected strength.

14 - (should be 49-57) My signal 60. Exceeds expected strength.

29 - (should be 58-65) My signal 61. Within range.

31 - (should be 46-54) My signal 52. Within range.

72.7 sat

15 - (should be 43-51) My signal 61. Exceeds expected strength.

17 - (should be 48-56) My signal 58. Exceeds expected strength.

19 - (should be 44-52) My signal 60. Exceeds expected strength.

21 - (should be 48-57) My signal 59. Exceeds expected strength.

77 sat

13 - (should be 43-53) My signal 46. Within range.

16 - (should be 43-52) My signal 55. Exceeds expected strength.

20 - (should be 44-51) My signal 53. Exceeds expected strength.

21 - (should be 44-53) My signal 48. Within range.

Looks like the extra work I did getting the dish peaked and adjusting the azimuth cam to get the sweet spot for both 77 and 72.7 paid off. I exceeded expected signal strengths on 8 of those transponders out of 12 and was well in range on the other 4.

For 61.5 on TP 10 it should be 44-53. TP 14 should be 50-58. 29 should be 55-63. 31 should be 45-54.

72.7 TP 15 should be 52-60, TP 17 should be 50-58, 19 should be 52-60, 21 should be 50-59.

77 TP 13 should be 34-60, TP 16 should be 34-58, 20 should be 36-60, 21 should be 38-59.

Well even with those new numbers I still exceed most of the signal strengths hardily. I don't use 77 for anything, since my locals are on 61.5, but I am above on some of those transponders too.
