Hi, I've been trying to align to 5w this week, but can't seem to find it :(

Does anyone have any suggestions or tips on how to align to this bird? I am using a meter.

@ c.barber

Have you got a motor?
5* west french channels come romping in here in suffolk, you should have no problems getting reception with your 80cm dish. Good strong signal on the transponder that Analoguesat mentioned or 12543H, 27500 or 12642H, 3092.
Whilst you are in that part of the sky you might try for Amos2 at 4* west, 10724H, 27500 or 10761H, 23250.
Even try for 7* west on a clear evening on 11747V, 27500.
And 8* west on 12747H, 2894.
Unless, of course, you have found them already.

do you have an old analogue receiver? i find that tends to make life easier.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The Filipino stuff is rather strong at 12711 (30,000)
