Hello all, can someone give me a quick list of what satellites are actually available (receivable ?) on an 80cm dish within the UK.
I'm picking up

Eurobird
Astra 19.2
Hotbird
Sirius 2 & 3
Eutelsat W3
Thor

I cannot seem to get anything else though ?

My Arc limit is good, probably about 50 east through to 70 west then we hit trees and buildings (dish is mounted low on the ground) main concern is after Thor I'm getting nothing over to the West, could my pole be slightly out ?

Cheers all !!!

If you're getting all the East sats and no West - yes your pole could be slightly out of vertical or only needs the whole dish motor moved slightly.
