Hello!

Well I've taken the plunge finally and was tempted by one of the Lidl specials. Unfortunately they'd run out, but I managed to pick up a receiver, sat finder and LNB. A friend gave me his old, and now unused, Sky analogue dish. After some frustration I finally got Astra 1B 19.2 E on the receiver. Very nice too. I somehow managed to get Astra 1H (according to a test card on one of the channels), but I'm after Astra 1G. ESA (European Space Agency) transmit on there, and often relay NASA TV so I've heard. So how do I get from Astra 1B/1H to 1G?

The dish is currently mounted on a broom handle... all modcons huh?

:)

If you got 1H you got all the others - they are effectively co-located in orbit.

1B is off air and is effectively scrap metal hanging in space.

ESA is ONLY on air during special missions and launches, and doesnt carry NASA.

They are all at 19.2 East try to scan that position and they should appear...
