symbol rate 34286 at 28E?

Not a normal SR for Astra 2, might be wrong.

Have just been trying for the last 10 mins or so, I can get 11558H sr 22000 at 13.1dB on the one meter dish at 28.2, nothing on sr 24286.
Will try with 1.8

Sorry, did mean 34286!

Using the 1.8, 11558H 22000 gives me about 18dBm, nothing on sr 34286.
I cannot believe that they would use the same frequency using different sr on the same bird, not with the power output of the 2 series on the europe beam

Geoffrey indeed this could be Astra 2E, that has a Middle East footprint.
And your 11556/11558 would fit one of its transponders, 36 MHz wide centered on 11555.
Many thanks for that - its a nice fit for what I am seeing.

In fact it is. Your guess is completely correct. I can also easily lock a signal with my small 1m dish on transponder 11555 SR34285. It is an encrypted data carrier for Middle East coming from ASTRA 2E not 2G. By the way, with my 1.70 offset dish I've recently been able to lock signal on some of 2E europe transponders like 11856, 11895, 11914,11934 though i'm not so sure of that. Maybe due to a not published side lobe.

I have a Xtrend ET 6500.

My dish is a Wave Frontier T90 and I make reception from 42 east to 1 west.

I use 14 lnbs with diseqc 16x1 emp.
My Location
Noerthwest of Greece.
Suprisingly since the last week in Northwest Greece (40.300581----21.789813) it is noticeable a further increaase in the signals of Astra 2G (European beam).

More inmportantly for the first time I can receive the signals from the European beam of Astra 2F.
Previously for the reception of Astra 2F it was possible only with dishes above 2.5 metres.

It is possible that SES Astra has redirected the beams of Astra 2G and Astra 2F towards South Eastern Europe.

Not very likely, could be " time of year " or atmospheric variance, but we all live in hope:)

How many dB does "time of year"account for?
I live in Sweden some 190 km WNW of Stockholm (close to Borlänge).
I had almost given of the hope of getting good reception with my 150 Gibertini. I was getting fair reception of v trsp on the UK spotbeam of 2E and the europa beam of 2G. Other channels have been lost for some time now.
Having clear frosty weather have now for some days given me a "full house" apart for 2F uk beam.
If anybody can give me a little hint to the size of the varriation between a clear frosty sky and a cloludy summer sky (no rain) I will have a better idea what I need to do to improve my system and to do fine tuning.
