I cannot get reception past 42 East.But that dose not stop me trying.I had my usual go at 46 East this morning,nothing.So I had a look at 50East .To my suprise I got a transponder.
12512 H 2222 3/4. Turksat-Tani.But cannot get a lock on it.That is the Alien. I am going to try my TM5402HD I think that has a better tuner.

What makes you think that the dish is looking at 50E?

I was actually looking at this satellite yesterday! It's very heavily inclined though - almost 5 degrees. Surprised we get a signal up here though... does the footprint change when the satellite moves above and below the equator? Maybe that would explain the ability to receive it here if it's 5 degrees above the equator - shifting the footprint further north?
