It all depends on the surrounding line of site.

Are there buildings/trees on the horizons ?
Does the motor allow full movement to the horizon ?

With certain dishes the arc you can receive is almost identical to the line that the boom arm would make in the sky.

2 Degrees East ?

178 degrees ?

If so and the dish can track to the horizon (and is perfectly on the arc), then you are looking at 68.5 E (Try the SABC channels), and 58 W (Chinese feeds)

You will need to go to Lyngsat.com for the frequencies, this laptop cannot capture screenshots, or cut and paste well.
