Hurry up track it today 13 Sept,2018 the signal has increased to 66 from 60 which means you can track it easily.

Hi chi,
Thanks for the update but unfortunately I'm unable to switch to the new Satelite because i need to replace my old dish.
Will do it as soon as i buy a new dish.

Best regards

Hi chi,
Just positioned the my new dish to the new AFN Satelite.The singal strength was 70 and quality was 60,during the day time and picture was superb.After 1830hrs Zambia time,the strength and quality started dropping from 70 to 60 and 60 to 30 back and forth respectively.
The picture is breaking up and pixelation is occurring.What could be the solution to this problem?

Regards

First of all leaving aside signal dwindling! That's normal.
For it to be stable you have to do the following.
Make sure your lnb is set to Horizontal, ie facing towards your right instead of left.
Make sure the dielectric plate is inserted a little deep inside the lnb. To do this you may need to rub off the edges of the dielectric and insert it again untill its deep enough! My first finger after the thumb reaches 3 quarters inside!
It should be separating the two probes inside the lnb( those two small antennas inside the lnb.
With that setting your tp should be H not V
from there, use this tp 3702 H 4999. Make sure the signal intensity is 75 and the quality does not go below 69, then select the AFN and you will hit 66 or 69 if not elevate very slowly while checking your signal quality level.
I always find that AFN is a little above 3702h4999.
If still the signal doesn't get improved check the azimuth ie turn left or right.

Hi,
Been home seen 1630hrs and the picture has been stable so far at S 70 and Q 60.

Will do needful if the picture misbehave tomorrow.

Hi,
I have tried working on lnb And azimuth but the S and Q still at 70 and 60 respectively.The picture looks stable so far.
It possible to achieve more than 60 quality?

Oh okay, which area are you in?
Will try tomorrow again to work on the lnb and azimuth to see what best quality i can achieve.
The picture has been breaking the last 1hr 40m and its quite disturbing.

Hello
My name is osazzy from Nigeria west africa, i heard about the latest change of satellite by AFN from intelsat 10-02 to SES 5 and that they are moving their channels to SES 5. Please can someone give the new parameters such as the degree, the position, s/r, frequency and polarity.
Thanks

I'm your neighbor, Tanzanian!
Now if you are ready to go lengths, this is my sure method and always when I do this I'm sure of hitting AFN!
Remove dielectric plate from the lnb, Point your dish to 68.5 East, input this TP 3975H19500! Get it to reach 90-95 signal quality by adjusting the lnb. The best time to do this its around 11:00 am or 6:00 in the morning!
Once you get that.
Input this TP 3740:30000 it will read around 66 or 69. Once its that My friend, you already kicked in. Once you turn the dish now to SES 5 AFN Must read 66-69.
However, make sure the dielectric plate cuts in between the probes inside the LNB. And the tp should read in H not V. See the photo.

Hi chi,
Back again on LNB,what works here is single solution LNB on AFN not standard LNB.What type of LNB are you using over there?

Your response please?

Not true at all, whether single solution or standard they both work! I tested today using gulf star 777 I got 69 and I tested a single solution lnb Eurostar es 21 and I managed to get 66.just follow the instructions I posted above, you will not regret.

I will definitely follow the instructions you have given and will also try the gulf star 317 LNB and post the result today or Monday.

As i write the AFN has been gone for last 3 hours (Signal 0 and Quality 0).

Hai CHI,
you said I should wait for about 15 minutes, I have v7 combo not v8, does it also work on v7 combo, is there anyone using v7 combo working on AFN.

The key emulator in v8 is the same in V7 with 03/08/2018.
