HI
Yes Thor is your nearest south satellite. Are you useing USALS to steer the dish? As you are roughly 1 degree to the east of Thor your motor shoud have been set slightly off of zero to get the best arc.

Thor is near your zero degrees - if that is set correctly and all the other set-up essentials are OK then you will be OK to receive the satellite East and West of Thor.

- Your mount has to be 'completely' vertical
- The dish and motor angles have to be set.

The fact that you can get the East satellite doesn't confirm all is OK unfortunately.

Can you get any West satellite and how far East can you receive a signal?
