Gibertini 1m dish,BU LNB, TBS6925 PC Card
70W - 75E
My Location
East Sussex Coast,United Kingdom
I received a data channel on 10978v, SR 200, FEC 1/2 this morning at approx the 74/75°E slot. Only thing I can find listed is a data channel on Insat 74°E which fits the parameters. I know this is highly unlikely to be the Insat here in SE England but can anyone further east have a look please?

I have attached a grab from crazyscan

Oss, NL (5.5°E 51.8°N)
For Hastings, Gsat-7 at 74.0°E has 2.0° elevation.
So with a clear view it's well possible, and this transponder is known to be pretty strong, so congrats!

Just checked Mikes exact location and 74°E is 1.2° elevation, I was surprised to see that Satbeams reckons 76.5°E is 0.1° above the horizon at his location and the MENA beam is still 45dBw at its edge. If my geometry is correct that would put it about 30 metres above his visual horizon, we're always up for a challenge :)

No idea but this is a military satellite, no true footprint available I think.
