Hello from 1 day ago I lost frequencies astra 2g 11068V, 11097V and emit Stv 11126v where hd, hd UTV, ITV and Channel 4 hd hd, I entered with 50% signal, someone has got it or that has moved me the antenna?
The antenna did not move, but that does not stop "dancing" is the signal Astra2G as UK footprint is critical, probably lost channels.
----------------------
La antena no se movio, pero el que no para de "bailar" es el Astra2G y como la señal de la huella UK es critica, perdio los canales seguramente.

These channels are moved to the UK beam Astra2G/Estos canales se movieron al Astra2G beam UK el 17-6-2015.

See the circle of Astra2G, not wasted, the second graph allows you to see the variation of the orbital position, each circle is a day.

Mirar el circulo del Astra2G, no tiene desperdicio, la segunda grafica permite ver la variacion de la posicion orbital, cada circulo es un dia.

a small nudge awarded me with BBCs, C4 and a few others, I'll try to check snr, but HD is nonexixtant, and lots of SD still missing.
Guess I'll have to move further north this time, I'm running out of space in the yard for bigger dishes.

28'2ºEste signal levels from Madrid, 07/19/2015 and 07/20/2015, and requires less to make ends meet.
A month end touches the beginning of the end, then to compare levels.

--------------------
Niveles de señal en 28'2ºEste desde Madrid, 20~19-7-2015, ya falta menos para final de mes.
A final de mes toca el principio del fin, niveles para comparar entonces.

The Astra 2G already almost 28'3º east, at a friend's house adjusted the antenna in December,lost a few weeks ago in 11023H23000 BBC NEWS HD, this morning I tuned in again without problems.

El Astra 2G ya esta casi a 28'3º este, en casa de un amigo ajustada la antena en diciembre, perdio hace unas semanas BBC NEWS HD en 11023H23000, desde esta mañana lo sintoniza de nuevo sin problemas.

It means the signal enhancement in the fixed antennas.
The power antenna, adjusting the satellite without problems.

With Astra 2E confirmed at 28.5 and 2F/G at 28.2, is the optimal position for my dish in Valencia around 28.35, or should i aim closer to 28.5 to minimise interference from BADR? Also, reports from Huevos suggest 2F is slightly stronger here than 2E.

I would aim at 2G being in the middle, but what I usually end up doing is making a list with the channels I want to receive, and maximise those, not caring much at the theoretical maximum

I usually have a minimum around lunch hour, and all channels including HD after dinner
I'm shopping for a new vu+ receiver that will allow me to plot some nice graphs, this Mirage doesn't even show the SNR values :(

I think the 28.5 figure is misleading for Astra satellites. Their centre of box position is 28.2; 28.5 was the position for Eutelsat birds. My opinion is that you should edge towards 28.2 rather than 28.5. Your present position of 28.35 sounds OK.

SES Ephemeris data now gives 2E at 28.5º:
"THE PREDICTED SATELLITE LONGITUDE AND LATITUDE AT 170 HOURS AFTER
EPOCH ARE 28.5014 DEG. E AND 0.0342 DEG. N " (11.08.2015)

An old friend, a former fellow mod on another satellite forum reports 1-2 dB loss since 2E moved to 28.5º on her 1.5 Gibertini, in SE Germany.
There is an additional problem of vertical separation. 2E: 0.034 N 2F: -0.068 N

Astra 2E is at 28.5E, 2F & 2G are 28.2E

The dish is pointed Currently at 28.2 and yet 2E, unscientifically, Seems stronger than ever (28.5 Means Perhaps move to less interference from BADR?)

Thinking about it, why don't SES move all three sats there and make 28.5 the official position?

Sorry, last post slight gibberish because Chrome was translating to Spanish. Wondering if in areas where BADR is strong, 2E is now performing better at 28.5 - even for dishes pointed at 28.2.

Hi all - I've been watching this forum closely in order to decide whether to install a dish (I have a Humax Freesat receiver) here in the Retiro area of Madrid, but I haven't seen any clear conclusions regarding final position for 2G and reliable signal reports. Can anyone help. Information I've gleaned from comments in this thread would suggest that I might need a 1,5m dish more or less with a decent LNB. Want to get this sorted for the Rugby World Cup :)

I think a 1.5m dish would be overkill in your area. Judging by Tururu´s reports on his 98x90 dish, a quality 1m should suffice, however a decent 1.2m would give you more rain margin. Here, Alicante south area I´m getting everything bar 11052H all day with no problem on my motorised 1.2m ( I am actually receiving 11052H at the moment, but it will go off later ) If you put Tururu´s coordinates into G maps it will give you an idea how far you are from him.

11052H is temporarily back to FEC 2/3 so it should be easier to receive again.

You need a good quality 120cm dish. This is adequate for all channels, including BBC & ITV. LNB: Inverto Black Ultra or Invacom Quad C120 (QDF-031).
Ignore comments which recommend 150cm, this is overkill for Madrid. I've installed two dishes of this size in the Madrid area in the past year. 120 cm also provides rain margin.

It´s right on the limit for the VU+, so it is breaking up quite a bit, floating between 7.8 and 8.1 dB, VU+ needs 8dB to be stable. 11097 float between 8.4 and 8.9 dB so stays stable all day.

Not too sure about the Inverto BU single 40mm we use a lot on the offset dishes here. Not as good as they used to be, see my comments in the following thread where I have been testing the new Laminas 1.2m dishes I have.

I am a rare case, it seems I'm at the point of maximum signal in Madrid, according to standard, the antenna is 90cm high quality (90x98cm are 94cm of floor space), I'm not useful as a reference, better minimum 120-130cm.

Personally I would put an antenna quality, if you can, better than 150cm, do not run short and smooth supports bad weather and / or poor quality antennas.

From the Parque del Retiro, I'm about 18KM +/- (according coordinates).
Adjust the antenna for maximum signal offset satellite position.

For channels that I see / hear without problems, 24Hours/7days, more better antenna.
The friend "The Master", install 150cm their clients to avoid problems with bad weather.
As always, it's your money.

Soy un caso raro, parece que estoy en el punto de maxima señal en Madrid, segun norma, la antena es de 90cm de muy buena calidad (90x98cm, son 94cm de superficie util), no soy util como referencia, mejor minimo 120-130cm.

Personalmente pondria una antena de calidad, si puedes, mejor de 150cm, no te quedas corto y soporta sin problemas el mal tiempo y/o antenas de mala calidad.

Desde el Parque del Retiro, estoy a unos 18KM +/- (segun coordenadas).
Ajusto la antena a maxima señal compensado la posicion del satelite.

Para los canales que veo/escucho, sin problemas, para 24Horas/7Dias, mejor mas antena.
El amigo "elMaestro", instala a sus clientes 150cm para no tener problemas con el mal tiempo.
Como siempre, es tú dinero.


As you say that reports are unreliable, have some photos of years.

Como dices que los reportes no son fiables, dejo unas fotos de hace años.

Ah! El Maestro!
I seem to remember he weighs less than the dish! But, no doubt, knows his job and the area. Worth getting advice from a local, but still think good quality 1.2m will suffice
