I managed to miss this, it is MER 15-18 dB with me, D12 on 1 MS DVB-S 7/8. It might be better if it were using more FEC. I assume the plan is to use H264 and DVB-S2 eventually.

Edit, after some tweaking of preamps it is now MER22, D16. Good signal. Any plans for a receiver?

Hi Mike
Thats great I thought it would be good in your direction. I realise the FEC is not great but the coder is an early Link C108 coder that will not let me set more FEC at 1ms/s. We do have a 70cms receiver and 23cms which both work ok but we are waiting for a logic/switcher to be worked on and then installed on site, hopefully before Christmas.
