At last! After months of trying I managed to lock one transponder on this sat this evening, 10985H (grabs attached). When ABS-1 was at this slot I could get most Northern Beam transponders on and off but until now ABS-2 has evaded me.

Thanks Jack. I am very surprised to have got it to be honest. I think the dish re-alignment last week was more needed than I thought lol.

Getting a data channel on 12139 H, 44100, 4/5 named Detsky Mir/Geo Telecom. Googling Detsky shows it's Russian children’s goods retailer Detsky Mir, owned by oil-to-telecoms conglomerate Sistema and Geo Telecom.

You're right. Detskiy Mir is sort of the equivalent to Toys'R'Us range of stores.

Hi Martin, I get the Russian stuff on 66E, 12595H & 12602H - but only in the Winter as there's a tree in the way. 68.5E is loaded with mostly religious channels, very strong here. Get the Bangladeshi/Sri Lankan MUX on 70.5E and 72.1 is good here but it's all ACM's. To the west, there's nothing beamed this way that I can think of beyond 45W but the dish will probably see down to ~70W

I think the MUX on 12522H @ 61W has gone, hasn't it? I used to get this OK

I am unsure at the moment mike, depending what way I put my actuator the dish flops, atm it is set to the east side, I do know how to fix this but cant be bothered, my new install wont have this issue.
