Sorry to start another ...in spain thread, but im having trouble with arabsat, i have had it in the past with good signal, but i cant seem to find it. Im told its at 137, 37 elevation, but thats the same as astra 28.2 here in spain. Anyone have any advise to its whereabouts. if someone can say something like ´Its between astra 19 and hotbird´ that would be helpfull. Thanks!

Astra 2d is at 28 deg east and arabsat 2d and 3a is at 26 east so you slould try to keep elevation and adjust 2 degrees to the west.
2 degrees is very little difference.

I take the part about the elevation back.
Since you are in spain you might gave to adjust it approx. 1 degree up.
And the elevation is 37.8 at 26 deg. east.

Hi ABB
Glad that you finally received the SatMeter that I sent to you.
Arabsat 26*east is between the cluster that $*y uses at 28*east and Astra3 at 23.5*east.
If, as you told me you got Nilesat, You should get Arabsat OK, try 11747V, 27500.
