You can forget anyhting on Amos 1. The Amos 2 European beams are weak in the UK and you will require a fair sized dish in the UK Midlands..

It's intersting that you can receive so many are you sure you are not picking up other sats with that as Lyngsat only has Amos down for about 100 channels....see here

Hi don'tknowdon'taskme.
The blind scan on 4*west will also pick up a lot of the channels from 5*west.

Hi vrlika

4*W Amos 2 try for 10723H, 27500.
Good signals here both on 85cm and 1m dishes, but as mentioned by another member, no sign from Amos1.
