Feb 2nd: Today, we were informed that the LNB's we need are backordered, with a 2 to 9 week delivery.
We have managed to find a supplier in Los Angeles, who has 13 in stock. (We need just two.) They should be
shipped tomorrow (Friday) or Monday and here, we hope, not too long thereafter.
Jan 31st: UPDATE: We have determined that the sound on Ch. 34 and the video dropouts on Ch 32
are from a single cause. The problem also occurs on PBS (16.1), though only occasionally. In order to track down the problem we have replaced every single piece in the signal path other than the LNBs in our
satellite dish (which almost never fail) and we have new LNBs on order.
We have also arranged to borrow a $10,000 analyzer card from one of our US suppliers, which should
be on it's way in the next day or so. We hope that will help us isolate the source.
The problem originated when the Anik F2 satellite switched modulation schemes at the end of November but
has proved elusive, to say the least. Your volunteers have put in close to 200 hours trying to
track down the problem, including dozens of sessions at 5 & 6 am, in order to minimize
interruptions to your service, while we try things.
We can ony apologize for the delay in repairing the system.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Thanks for reading.
