Question about Satellite 72.7 used by DishTV

When I left the DR last May, my HD reception from DishTV was working just fine.
Upon my return, I found the 6' dish knocked out of alignment due to the collapse of the frame.
The guy who installed both the original DishTV connection and the HD upgrade has logged two full days on my roof trying to get the HD signal back. He's tried a new LPN(?) and a new dish, both to no success.
He's now about to try an American made dish. He says the signal from 72.7 is very weak.
So the question is: has there been any issues with the signal power from this satellite in the last five months?
(Or is my 'Satellite Guy' giving me the business?)
