Forgive my stupidity but I thought getting 26 East would be easy as I can get 19.2 and 13 east?

80cm Motorised.
Several small Dishes.
Much else.

The trouble is, it's not just down to the position on the Clarke Belt but more importantly where the various Beams of the Satellites are pointing: This creates a "Footprint" and the UK/RoI are at the edge of one footprint and completely (to all intents and purposes) out of the rest.

Look at this

^^ The Badr 5 & 6 beams are firing into the Middle East, the Mediterranean & North Africa

Todays beam shaping technology has advanced greatly over the last 5-10 years, and lots of fringe areas are now losing signals from broadcast slots they have traditionally had reception from as new satellites come into service.

Not much we can do about it Im afraid.

Yes I think I'm starting to understand it a bit better now. What satellites can I expect to receive then? I have a motorised dish and I'm currently getting 28.2, 19.2 and 13 east.

Those are the European versions Martin - folk want the Middle East versions for the footy - which is why they are on the difficult beams!
