George, it's not about getting right tools oo. I think the bro is right in asking that question; why will those signals elude us here in this part of Africa (anything good in the air regarding sat is minus the western part of Africa) WHY, is there any any politricks in this tech or biz?

What makes you think this thread is dying, what can you do to keep it alive if you see it as dying.? Tell us we are waiting to hear, when you picked up a quarrel or attack on Gadotor, Enitan, Eltonluigi etc. like what these GH guys have done, did that warrant for shutting down the thread?
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by sathob(m): 8:15pm On Oct 24, 2011|
Patience, patience is the key. Those of us outside the foot print will have to be patient to see how events unfold with the launch of AB7 and the M.E beam. Same, I will say about the N.W Africa beam, the day is still too young. The controllers know what to do.
Let me ask concerning fringe reception, how long did it take for those receiving sky signal on astra to start doing that?
In Gh where I live, what we get was AB4a, no signal from Nilesat is received here but the others received are better.

I dey cool as ice, man! my post was not directed at you. Give it a careful loook by reading from the previous page and you will get the direction of my post.
Yes! Indeed we are civilzed, does that rule out security, does that rule out protecting your consumers? Girl, why are you generalizing this- it's a problem specific issue. authenticating your receiver is an initiative by Strong Technologies as a measure, at least to help consumers know what they have traded thier money for.
Fine, you may take chances by the fact that you purchased your receiver from XYZ accredited shop so authenticating your receiver isn't a case.
But I welcome the idea from strong-technologies to authenticate any receiver amongst the models listed here _http://www.mytvportal.net/stronggenuine.aspx
Also, take a look at the banner I have attached, it's clear on their website. How do you do that, one way of doing it is what we are discussing now.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by sathob(m): 11:44pm On Oct 12, 2011|
It's about time when people mess up you let them know frankly that hey man you messed up. What has one's location or nationality got to do with authenticating a product. Strong, on their website recommends verifying the genuinity of receivers that carry their tradmark and to achieve this they have started with some models one of which is 69z.
Whether you purchased your receiver from their office, accredted distributor, wherever or from whoever, they recommend you do it. This is not to say a particular dealer is not trustworthy.
Ok! what if one of a trusted dealer's sales boy has black deals and decides to hide under the good name of his master to promote his mischieves, wouldn't what iron suggested save a customer his dough?

|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Eastern Naija Sat Group(igbo Kwezuenu) by sathob(m): 12:42pm On Sep 27, 2011|
I think matters relating to ethnicity in Africa is very sensitive and can lead to polarization in our society. Yes! you are right the poster suggests satellites trackable in eastern Nigeria.
Take a look at this (Eastern Naija Sat Group(igbo Kwezuenu) - I don't know much about Nigeria when it comes to which people living at which geo locations; is it only Igbo people living in Eastern Nigeria, if you want to talk about satellites trackable in that region? Look at this too
sambass:Why not use "Trackable satellites in Eastern Nigeria" as the Title for the thread?
I have no issue with the thread stater - NO! nor Igbo people (infact I haven't lived with any) neither any ethnic group in Africa but the fact that the above quotes have the tendency or can potentially invite posts like these
miju:and divide the house, in this way, it must not be encouraged.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Nilesat-201 Footprint Maps by sathob(m): 1:56pm On Sep 25, 2011|
Hi Bro Kungu,
Greetings! You know, I watched this launch yesternight online but I missed the take off because I was dazing off behind my pc. Also, the streaming didn't start exactly the time promised by sea launch on their website.
But guys here at west coast are anitciapating better packages from this new development with a strong coverage dedicated to north-west Africa. I hope these guys won't dissapoint us by using most of the coverage for internet services as stated but give DTH services of much interest to potential customers and FTA hobbyists here.
Currently, I receive most of the TPs on AB 4a and hope the content migration to AB7 won't deny us good reception as it happened with AB4 for most hobbyists in some parts Nigeria (south-south).
I can get signal for nile201 at 52% on srt69z but red and it won't turn green on any of my recievers too. In southern Gh, precisely Accra, what we get is normaly AB4a and not Nilesat frequencies on 3.1m mesh dish.

Paris, 24 September 2011
The ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 satellite of Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) has been
successfully delivered into orbit by a Zenit-3SL rocket operated by Sea Launch AG from the
ocean-based Odyssey Launch Platform in international waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Lift-off of the rocket carrying the Astrium-built 4.6 tonne satellite took place on Saturday 24
September at 20:18 GMT/UTC (22:18 CET). After a 1-hour 7-minute flight, the Zenit-3SL
booster released ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 into geosynchronous transfer orbit. Partial deployment
of the solar array, commanded by Eutelsat from its teleport in Rambouillet, was successfully
completed within three hours of separation.
ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 is set to bring first-class resources to 7 degrees West, a key video
neighbourhood delivering Arab and international channels into almost 30 million satellite
homes across North Africa and the Middle East. Eutelsat operates at 7 degrees West in close
collaboration with the Egyptian satellite operator Nilesat which manages its own system of
three satellites at this location.
Following early orbit operations which are managed by Eutelsat and Astrium engineers, and
which include circularising the satellite’s orbit and deploying the antennas, ATLANTIC BIRD™
7 will undergo a full series of in-orbit tests. It will be moved to 7 degrees West in the second
half of October to assume broadcasting of the 370 digital and High-Definition channels already
delivered from this position by Eutelsat’s ATLANTIC BIRD™ 4A satellite. With up to 50
transponders, 11 more than ATLANTIC BIRD™ 4A, it will also open opportunities for further
business development in high-growth markets. Two beams will give superior coverage across
the Middle East, North Africa and North-West Africa.
Following ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7’s entry into service, ATLANTIC BIRD™ 4A will be redeployed
to an alternative location where it will remain in full commercial service.
Commenting after launch and the first manoeuvres, Eutelsat CEO, Michel de Rosen said: “We
are delighted to announce that ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 is on its way to 7 degrees West, and
thank Sea Launch, Energia Logistics and RSC Energia for a precisely executed launch. This
new satellite will deliver headroom for expansion at one of Eutelsat’s fastest growing video
neighbourhoods, serving vibrant TV markets in North Africa and the Middle East. It
underscores our ambition to make a long-term commitment to digital broadcasting markets in
the region and to team with key players to deliver first-class service.
Today’s launch also represents a new step forward in Eutelsat’s significant in-orbit expansion
programme. Our W3C satellite is scheduled for launch next month, with five further satellites to
follow into space by early 2014 that will collectively increase our resources by 20%.”
Based on the Eurostar E3000 platform, and with a scheduled in-orbit lifetime exceeding 15
years, ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 is the 20th satellite ordered by Eutelsat from Astrium.

Happening today, watch the Atlantic Bird 7 launch, read the following:
Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) announces that its ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 satellite is set for launch on Saturday September 24. The satellite will be delivered into orbit by a Zenit-3SL rocket operated by Sea Launch AG from the ocean-based Odyssey Launch Platform in international waters of the Pacific Ocean. Lift-off is planned for 13:18 pm Pacific Daylight Time (20:18 GMT, 22:18 CET), at the opening of a 74-minute launch window.
Built for Eutelsat by Astrium, the 4.6 tonne ATLANTIC BIRD™ 7 satellite will replace ATLANTIC BIRD™ 4A at 7 degrees West and deliver additional capacity for further expansion of services. Up to 50 Ku-band transponders will be connected to two beams giving superior coverage of the Middle East, North Africa and North-West Africa for digital broadcasting services.
A live video transmission of the launch will be available in High Definition from Eutelsat's HOT BIRD™ position at 13 degrees East for viewers in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East (downlink frequency 12149 MHz, vertical polarisation, Symbol rate: 27.500 Mbaud). A webcast will also be available via[b] http://www.eutelsat.com and http://www.sea-launch.com[/b]. The launch transmission is scheduled to begin approximately 15 minutes before lift-off.

|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by sathob(m): 4:07pm On Sep 04, 2011|
Man, my cable is also 80m and burried underground but the secreet is the type of cable I am using. It's RG6 (i think this type is also used by communication companies too. They commonly refer to it as RG6 RF cable), thicker, heavier and expensive than the normal RG6 on the market. The core is pure copper, not coated copper and, the shield at the outer sheath is also pure copper strands, very thick. I don't notice any difference when I test the signal strength with a short cable (3m) and this long cable of 80m. Those who have seen my setup can confirm that. 2. Some Lnbs can't send frequency over a long distance and, just over 20m they perform badly. By the way, my lnb is star gold fuji.
Consider the above, maybe it can help you overcome this challenge.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by sathob(m): 2:55pm On Sep 02, 2011|
Your best bet will be inverto black ultra lnb family, be it single, twin or quad for fringe reception. The advantage of inverto lnb is its ability to transmit over long distance about 70m according to expert review especially the flange. I am looking for this lnb too.

sorry, i didn't understand ur request. micro has answered you right, it's the solution i know.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Strong Receivers Thread by sathob(m): 8:54pm On Aug 02, 2011|
For the letters in bold refer to this link https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-152871.0.html
for the pictures
Just connect one end of the cable to the 9 pin port behind your receiver and the other end of the cable to the same 9 pin serial port at the back of your PC.
If it's laptop, then you need a serial (9 -pin) to USB cable since most laptops do not have this 9 pin you have for the STB or desktop computer.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Strong Receivers Thread by sathob(m): 8:40pm On Aug 02, 2011|
Insert the device on which the recording was done in the usb port provided. After STB sending message of recognizing your device, press the play button on your remote control, the content of the recording device will be displayed on your screen. navigate to the folder containing your recordings, select your rec'ded file and press the play button.

long time oo bro! what happened, you fly out? Anyway, greetings to you.
bro! for that word in bold, I am not oooo! I am a Jah rocking feeling broda, crazy about satellites. hehe, I hope you get the drift. I look forward to being a dish farmer oneday, harvesting sats of varieties going beyond sat tv. all i'm seeing is that, "that thing" is turning this house upside down. now, guys like baba egun, bodejohn, butoneday, fmarshal, enigma, enitan, ecowas4all, salamander, badaru1 father of wonders on 1.8m, adewest the puzzle solver, the myth breaker, just to mention but a few have all disappeared and those who wish to pop in here once in a while are disappearing too.
The revolution is just arround the corner, you shall all be witnesses when that time comes.
man! nuff said.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: Official Thread Of Free To Air Satellite Tv (part 5 - The Final Part) by sathob(m): 10:25am On May 31, 2011|
it's really pathetic the way some comments are passed regarding cs and paytv. pls. watch your back. Infact there is no war between pay tv service providers and hobbyists in this house. I personally dont think this platform is the right place to start a war, this home of ours is FTA, all other matters are null.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: (diy) Design And Fabricate Your Own Satellite Dish Of "all Sizes", Ask How.now by sathob(m): 6:39pm On May 01, 2011|
if it's the dish you are refering to, then focal length is the distance between the reflective surface (i.e if it were a concave mirror, I would say the reflective surface is where you see your image) and the point where all the signal converge strongly.
In the second attached file it is indicated / represented by the red line.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: (diy) Design And Fabricate Your Own Satellite Dish Of "all Sizes", Ask How.now by sathob(m): 5:01pm On May 01, 2011|
I am Not a maths geek, this is my result with the use of a graph software. x=y2/4f where my desired f (focal length) is 7 representing 70cm, using the scale 10:1 is right.
|Satellite TV Technology / Re: (diy) Design And Fabricate Your Own Satellite Dish Of "all Sizes", Ask How.now by sathob(m): 10:58pm On Apr 30, 2011|
^^^ yes! what are the needed materials relative to the variety of dish types eg. for fibre, what do we need to start. for pan it's obvious it's gonna be "metals", what are the types of metals? as for the geometry in it you are the guide.

Adex70:It's probably because the band of downlink operational frequencies for ku is totally different (b/n 10.Bleep and 12. 7xx)and not falling within the band of the interfering frequency from the GSM mast and system (broadband wirelss access). Your Ku LNB does not pick it at all. GSM equipment or system operating frequencies fall within 3.4-3.7 GHz ranges of the FSS extended C-band frequency and this same frequnecy range fall into the satellite tv downlink input freq. range of the C-band LNB, hence the interference.
with the use of a filter, the interference can be, if not completly eliminated, reduced significantly. prepare to pay something between $300 and $600.
Google Wimax interference on c band, for further understanding of the subject
