hi all,

i'm trying to find Eutelsat W2 16E to get some fta stuff. i have a dish on astra (the one with bbc 1-4, itv 1-4) and a second one on hotbird. i believe that Eut. W2 is somewhere in between. am i correct? could someone also tell me please what tilt i should have the dish at in relation to astra or hotbird. i am located in the ireland east.

thanking you in advance
mal.

Mark the current postition of the 13E dish with paint or tippex, then slacken the bolts holding the dish in place SLIGHTLY, and nudge it eastwards a bit.

You really need an 80cm dish to get a good range of 16E channels, although smaller ones will give you the high symbol rate Bulgarians.

When you start searching make sure the receiver is tuned into one of the 28000 SR Bulgarians - they are as strong as anything on 16E. :)
