Hi Mark.


I just talked to Doug Johnson at KJLY and in looking at the XDS log for the past few hours your XDS receiver’s Eb/No dropped from 9.4 to 0.0 about 11am. Doug says Blue Earth, Minnesota was hit with high winds and some hail this morning.  It’s possible your dish may have gotten pelted and maybe the feedhorn was dinged or the coax or LNB may have taken a hit.


I’ll send you a PDF attachment of the XDS log for this morning, which may help you diagnose the situation better when you arrive at the station later today. In the meantime, I suggested that Doug make a visual inspection of the dish and feedhorn assembly to check for any obvious hail damage.


By the way…


For emergency use, affiliates can access a higher quality stereo Internet stream of our MB1

This will work in any number of media players, it will directly connect to a 96kbps MP3 Pro stream.
