For same reason i can't get hispasat satellite. I have a motored 80cm dish with a echostar dsb-808 receiver. I can get a signal of about 25% and that is all. Can same tell me what i am doing wrong. Oh i have universal lnbf. All satellites like hotbird and thor are all ok.

Just to add, could you get it before or are you looking to just pull it in now.

That one should be fine, have you tried some of the ones inbetween like 8W and 12.5W?

87% here so it's not the sat. How is the rest of your arc ? particularly the western half .

OK then - half way between the two is NSS7 at 22 W

11563 H 6110 is strong (above 80%) at the moment. Move round there and try that. Let us know how you do. :)

Right - your dish face is not at a right angle to your pole at the moment or if it is then you were not quite south with the whole lot on the pole to start with.
You need to zero your motor then loosen your dish and put it at 90' to it.
Then loosen the pole and twist the whole lot to peak on 1 west again. When you have done that then tighten it off and peak your dish elevation with the bolts an the back of the dish. Then skew you LNB for max signal.

That'll do it. Post back when your your done and let us know :)
