with the way this 201 is playing hide and seek, i'm begining to have my doubts whether this footprint
will really work oooo!
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by toba: 12:54pm On Oct 06, 2010
yea, i agree. becos pple in lower places to the footprint i.e in Kenya and Tanzania are receiving it with 1.8 and 2.4. Here with both some pple says they cant track it

what was your signal strenght on 11727?
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by obnelly: 2:48pm On Oct 07, 2010
twinskenny,I tried with my 2.4m no show on strong at all i changed the receiver to my old technosat T888 which i believe is very sensitive to signal all i got was just 15-20%.note,if the signal is close to 35% on the technosat i should hit green but no way.it jumped between 15 and 20% meaning its a weak signal and cannot bring picture

QUALITY //////// 67%
SIGNAL // 15 TO 20%
My conclusion,those 3 transponders may be very weak compare to kenya and tanzania.
we may need a better lnb couple with a good dish and a sound technical know how to get it right.

LETS WAIT TILL WHEN ANOTHER FREQUENCY WILL BE ACTIVE,WE MAY BE LUCKY OTHERWISE IT WILL BE LIKE THAT OF SHOWSPORT SIGNAL OR CNN ON 2.4M WHICH EVEN WITH LAZER LNB YOU CANT NAIL IT WITH 2.4.

ALL THE GURUS WITH 5M DISH AND ABOVE CAN YOU PLS TRY THAT NAUGHTY NILESAT 201 AND FEED US BACK?

ABU DHABI SPORT ON 11449 SIGNAL TOO IS WEAK BUT I WAS ABLE TO RECEIVE IT UP TO 48 TO 50% YET THE SIGNAL VERY WEAK.

from another forum some have been receiving the signal in spain,Germany and other parts of europe,some with good signal other with bad signal.

@ segun,
with what dish size,type(mesh,fibre or pan):offset or prime focus.
thanks in advance.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by GeorgeD1(m): 6:07pm On Oct 07, 2010
all,
lets not rush into tracking 201 yet. i think they may still be finetuning the transponders.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by cantell(m): 6:19pm On Oct 07, 2010
I tried the nilesat 201 tp 11727 on my 2.4m dish here in onitsha and i got the signal - about 66%
They were reciting prayers in arabic and writing them as if they were lyrics to a song.
the other tps were down, couldn't get them.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by obnelly: 8:05pm On Oct 07, 2010
my update this evening.i tried 12092 from a friends 4m dish the signal is 60% but not stable,its off and on ,i think i may stick to what George said ,lets give 201 a little time for everything to be 100% ok.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by emexi: 10:25pm On Oct 07, 2010
@all with my 2.4m pan ,all the tree tps are @65% signal strength.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by obnelly: 9:14am On Oct 08, 2010
good tins ar really comi frm east o.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by GeorgeD1(m): 9:41am On Oct 08, 2010
yeah, looks like the new bird may favour the east more. lets keep our fingers crossed.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by twinskenny(m): 9:56am On Oct 08, 2010
Will change my LNB tomorow and see if i can get something,

Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by toba: 4:36pm On Oct 08, 2010
and the dish size as well. Im in two locations. I have 4metres in one and 1.8metres in the other. Im not ready to buy another bigger dish. Nilesat 201 must perform with my 1.8metres in Lagos

1.8m should do the trick.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by segunfms(m): 6:17pm On Oct 08, 2010
@all

can i track Ad-Sport on nilesat 201 with 63x decoder?
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by twinstaiye(m): 12:07am On Oct 09, 2010
I got 11211 and 11727 here in Abuja with Strong 4669x on my 2.4m dish. I cant remember the percentage of the signal.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by obnelly: 5:34am On Oct 09, 2010
we are progressing on 201 at least we are getting positive result from enugu to onitsha now is abuja.signal strenght and dish size is very important.keep it up.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by GeorgeD1(m): 4:47pm On Oct 09, 2010
traditionally the north doesn't have problems with nilesat signal so we should concentrate on south-south and east.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by segunfms(m): 6:52pm On Oct 09, 2010
@all

I track nilesat 201 today here in lagos with 55% for Ad sport and 57% for Alj sport. on 3m dish and fuji hd 4 ways lnb.

for Ad sport Hd i use 4669x to get the signal, i didnot get the signal when i use 4663x.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by obnelly: 7:16pm On Oct 09, 2010
segun,good to hear the foot print is reached all over now,we are progressing ,enugu,onitsha,abuja now lagos.people in ibadan and ogbomosho area we are waiting for your reports on 201,
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by toba: 8:10pm On Oct 09, 2010
@all if u read my post above, u would know my worry. I cant go beyond 1.8m for 201 in my official residence in Lagos. My fear is since 3m was only able to track 55% in Lagos, what happens to 1.8m? Im in ikoyi. My fingers are still crossed though.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by segunfms(m): 8:30pm On Oct 09, 2010
@toba

dont worry urself, 1.8m dish will track nilesat 201 soon, i didnt cool down in my tracking because of rain. i can get more than that if the weather is ok and i cool down. i know i can get up 70 to 75%.

if east and north can get a good signal,  then west should not have a problem,  I am setting up 2.4m this weeekend, i will give updates as possible.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by sikelemi: 2:19pm On Oct 12, 2010
My fellow blog mates, is it possible to catch Nilesat 201 in Southern Zambia @ latitude -16.8 S and 26.7 E. If possible what size of dish and LNB types. Thanks to anyone with this info.
Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by GeorgeD1(m): 4:19pm On Oct 16, 2010
nilesat 201 is taking too long in making any significant impact on our overall signal strenght i'm beginning to wonder if that footprint map can be relied upon.

personally before i will take this serious is when i begin to see appreciable changes in difficult tranponders like cnn, gear one, etc. as at this morning, unfortunately no such improvements yet.
