What is the best Transponder to use to align a 3.60m unimesh dish in order to recieve Astra 28.2 and Astra 28.5. Obviously will loose some strength when aligning between these two, but as a rule of thumb what do the experts in this forum suggest in order to maximize reception from both birds. Any speicific channel to use or transpnder if you can help. My location is Amman-Jordan. Thank you.

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.

Well I don't know of any reports anywhere for Jordan but I have seen posts for Egypt and Israel, as Jordan borders Israel I suppose that would be your nearest location. Have a search in the fringe reception section of the board unfortunately the reports section of Astra2d.com doesn't list anything for your region either click here to have a read, you may be able to get a feeling based on reports form other countires in the Med.

The strongest thing beaming everywere is 12.051 V 27500 2/3. Or Sky news on 12207 V 27500 2/3. On astra 2D, the transponder carrying Extreme sports and euronews is strongest, but i dont know the exact frecuency for that one...

Well, I'm not in Spain, and can't advise from personal experience, but wouldn't you want to line up on the WEAKEST receivable transponders?

There's some good footprint maps here, giving relative beam strengths, but not per transponder (which can change anyway!), I don't know if this info is any use .........
