Hi guys,

I have a 80cm motorized dish with single LNB and I'm able to acquire some fta channels from 13E and 28.2E
successfully. The problem is that on Eutelsat (28.2E), I can't get any signal when searching for channels
from 12xxx frequency. I've got channels from frequency starting 11xxx.

From example I'm trying to get fta indian channels from 12545H but I cant get any signal from the frequency. The quality bar is 0% and my receiver can't find any channels from that frequency.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Tervetuloa / welcome to the forum!

Those higher transponders from 12.5-12.75GHz are on the Astra 2F Europe beam. They can be quite hard to get in Finland. In Helsinki I can pick them up on a 1.8m dish most of the time, but it's just on the limit.

Hi Timo,

Thank you for your reply, good to know. Now I know that I shouldn't waste time trying to get signals from
frequencies that can't be acquired.
