Are you useing an active transponder to find the satellite? Use 11747V, 27500.
Not everybody can get a signal off of that satellite with your size dish, better chance late evening.
You could go to 28 east, put the above transponder into memory on that lacation and then slowly nudge the dish west until you get a reading, maximise it, turn off the motor, go to Arabsat in your memory and then do a scan and save the position. Finally remove 11747V, 27500 from the 28east memory.

85cm wide x 90cm high dish, NW London reasonable signal here.

I, like Anaglouesat have recieved reception from Arabsat 3A, with very precise alignment in South Lancashire, with an 80cm dish - however, I have found its much easier to find/recieve with a 1.1m dish.

It looks like it should be firing 45mm shells not receiving signals. That is well built but must have come from the military

You will not get the H transponders from the UK unless you have something very special, but you should get a couple of dozen of the V channels from the midlands and south UK with a good 1mtr dish.

90cm max without PP. Try for Nilesat late in the evening you might be lucky.
Broken sky's here Nilesat very blocky on 85cm, on a good clear summer day can get a number of channels all day
