Hi All

The motorised setup I have purchased can go from 75w-75e but to help me decide where I'm going to fix my dish realistically with a 1.1m dish what is the furthest w & e i will beable to pick up signals from?

Cheers

Realistically about 60E to 60W is as far as you will get in the UK. (although theres not much out that far west visible in the UK.)

As the dish moves from 0 60E & 0-60W does it tilt forward or backwards?

The dish will do just that, if it did not it would not find the sats. :)

The dish face will be more or less upright at 0 degrees (in the UK). The face will tilt forwards (with the top leaning over) as you go out towards the extremes of the arc.
