What a frustrating past seven days. I can’t seem to imagine why some hosting provider,s can just choose to frustrate their clients. You pay heavily for a web host and you got hurt by them even without notice. Thank God I am back to fight another day. I sometimes think this kind of issues has connections with the big movers and shakers of satellite tv in Africa. It is their world against mine and since they cannot get me legally, who knows maybe they want to frustrate my efforts using other means. Today’s article will focus on nigcomsat qsat tracking. I will start right away without wasting much of your time.
Especially relevant: tracking nigcomsat channels and three others on a 90 cm dish
Nigcomsat qsat tracking the trick to avoid signal loss
Some of my followers are complaining that qsat cannot track nigcomsat channels. The major problem they are facing on this is that there is no signal strength on qsat when trying to track nigcomsat channels on it. Furthermore, some sectors experience signal loss after tracking it successfully(this signal loss is not due to nigcomsat downtime). In the opposite, I want to tell you that your qsat can indeed track nigcomsat channels successfully as long as it can track other satellites. As usual, I will expose you to what you need to do and why you must avoid when tracking nigcomsat with qsat.
Why am I facing problems with nigcomsat qsat tracking?
The problem arises due to the poor tuner qsat is manufactured with. This problem doesn’t occur on strong decoders or some other decoders with a slightly stronger tuner. However, we have other causes which I will discuss later in this post.
How you can avoid loss of signal while tracking nigcomsat channels with a Qsat decoder
Note: I will personally advise you use a sat finder or a strong HD decoder to track the bird initially before connecting the dish to your qsat. That way you can better troubleshoot the problems.

- Firstly, you must use the most current frequency to track. You can get this from my link above
- Secondly, you must use a quality Ku LNBf. This can significantly boost your signal quality and strength
- If you want to nail the bird with the least hassles, please avoid using a DiSEqC switch.
- Also, if you want to track the channels, make sure your LNB cable is not too far from the dish and also make sure you have not joined your LNB cable together
- Your signal must be very strong before you can pick it on qsat(This is why I advise you first track with a reliable decoder like strong or by using a satfinder). Get 80% or stronger if possible before connecting your cable to qsat.
I did all the above yet I cannot get the channels why?
If you can’t still get with the above tricks, then either of the two factors is responsible: either the satellite is generally off(very unlikely), or You are using an outdated frequency. Try and use the one here
