Hi

Trying to get Hispasat 30w. Got a 60cm dish in northern france which I've read here should be ok for the footprint. Also that 12012V 27500 is the strongest transponder to find.
My problem is that Hispasat 1 a,b,c (30w) is not listed on my image (gemini 2.2) but Hispasat 2 is. Therefore 12012V is not there. I've added 12012V to the list but still the search fails.

Can anyone help please ? How do I get the transponders for Hisp 1 into my machine and whats the best way to find hisp 1. I've tried the sun position at 14:00 but is there a strong satellite nearby so I can step my motor around ?

Thanks for your help

I've managed to get a lock and done a search at Hispasat 2 (30w) and got 65 transponders including these

CNN on 12591 V
BBC world on 12593 V

So after looking at king of sat website I am totally confused. What I have is not listed and is certainly not Hispasat 1 or 2.

Sounds like I need an afternoon playing with the dish.

Get out some winter night with a Chainsaw and let rip at it.
