"Thanks for your help, the problem is solved it was the LNB that needed replacement - somehow it did not pick up the D1 channels when pointing to the D1 satellite but when pointing to D2 it would get all those channels. That also explains why I lost…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile
and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose
to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you
please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale5888@gmail.com) ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Stella.
