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.
You will find a full list of frequencies and channels here.
Are you using a meter on the dish to find the signal?
You have to move the dish West from Astra - only a few degrees - once you have some signal fine tune by moving the dish up and down slightly and the LNB out and in and you can try turning is slightly both way to find the best signal.
Remember to wait a few seconds for the digital signal to lock before you adjust again. Best to mark the dish LNB position on 19.2 E before you start so that you can get that position back.
If you find what you want use a different pen and make that so you can move between the two.
I am moving between astra1 (19.2) degrees and hotbird (13.0) eutelsatw2 is in the middle (16.0) but i just cannot find it,.If the meter is picking up both is there any other reasons you can think of why i do not see eutelsatw2.
I am looking at a spectrum envelope on the Sat Meter but do not see any other transmissions between Astra1 and Hotbird. This has totally confused me, additionally The receiver in Signal Test does the same i.e when I selet Hotbird and turn the dish to it the stregnth is there, same ith Astra1
