I have steup a system where I can get a 45% signal on 2D but nothing on Astra 2b Noryth Beam. I am in Malaga Spain. Bit confused as to why this is?

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Whilst the advertised footprints as here for 2B north may appear the same as 2D here the reality is that each transponder on each satellite can give slightly different reception in fringe areas, in some places you are lucky and others you are not. You do not say what your signal quality is on 2D nor do you say what you can see if anything as regards channels but as you only have a 1.2 mtr and the predicted footprint is some distance from you if you are recieving anything be happy

I have a 1.2M dish running an Inverto Quad LNB. The 2 transponders that I have the beef with are on 2B. They are 12070 and 12034 (Channel Five). I can get 12034 for about 6 hours from midday and 12070 for 2 hours from midday.

I am based 20 miles east of Malaga in Spain. Is a bigger dish the solution as the signal is there but so very weak?

Thanks anyway

If you can get channel 5 you should be getting BBC & ITV fine, channel 5 reception in these parts is difficult without a 1.8M dish.:)
