The C band broadcasts are apparently available with a 2m dish throughout Europe.
Intelsat 11 at 43.1°W - LyngSat Maps

I tried to get a lock on the C band transponders recently from 43.1W with a Precision 2.0m dish and failed from a UK location. It might have been the dish/feed alignment that was not set correctly or partially blocked line of sight to the satellite. Have you tried to get signals with your Precision 2.2m dish that you said you were going to install?

Forum member "antrabe" in Spain should have a better chance than us folk in the UK as he is directly under the part of the footprint with strongest signal for Europe and the Northern tip of Africa?

@John

The 3878H frequency you locked on a scan with EBS Pro is an interesting one, what is the carrier bandwidth? From the FEC, Standard and Modulation types it should need around 7.9db for a lock for a video signal yet EBS sniffed it out at 2.8db. I could not see it listed on Lygnsat or Flysat.

check it "carefully": this is a MIS frequency (GS Stream)

[QUOTE = "antrabe, post: 1065654, miembro: 410118"] alguien atrapa this ave en España [/ QUOTE]
¡¡Hola!! Yo lo tengo desde Barcelona!
parabolica 3.10m
[QUOTE = "moonbase, post: 1065674, miembro: 178786"] Intenté obtener un bloqueo en los transpondedores de la banda C recientemente de 43.1W con un disco Precision 2.0m y fallé en una ubicación del Reino Unido. Podría haber sido la alineación del plato / alimentación que no se configuró correctamente o parcialmente bloqueó la línea de visión al satélite. ¿Ha intentado obtener señales con su plato Precision 2.2m que dijo que iba a instalar?

El miembro del foro "antrabe" en España debería tener una mejor oportunidad que nosotros, la gente en el Reino Unido, ya que está directamente debajo de la huella con la señal más fuerte para Europa y el extremo norte de África. [/ QUOTE]
¡Hola! Desde España con 2,4 m entra casi todo, pero completo hace falta 3,10m, yo ahora con 3,10 m, entra todo !! Un saludo.
