Is that a typo: 100-200 us? Check out:


10 us to 1 us or even sub-us is ok. But if it's
really over 100 us something for sure is not
working right. Send me a some plots and we
can work it out. Antenna type; feed cable,
obstructed sky view, signal level, number of
sats in view, surveyed position, etc.
