You must be twixt Colchester and Ipswich, your elevation to that bird is approx 5 degrees above the horizon. Have a look at h**p://w*w.flysat.com/pas10.php to check if there is anything worth trying to look for, you never know your luck unless you try.
With that size dish you should get a signal from 58 west strong BT test cards and I would have thought that you would pick something up off of 53 east as well. An old friend of mine from Martlesham Heath could pick up those satellites with an 85cm dish. Just make sure that you have line of sight ie no trees/buildings in the way.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Only one (maybe two) transponders available in the UK

What do you want to pick up ?
