Hi all!

Am still kinda new to all this (use to have a friend around who'd do all the "work" for me :p ) and i was just curious if any of you know of a site where we can find out which satellites we can receive from a location (in my case, Qatar)... am already getting Hotbird and Nile Sat, but would like to know if there are more (especially for getting U.S channels!!)

Thanks for any help you all can provide.

look up the satellites you would like to view on there website and see if the footprint that the satellite covers is over your location

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.

In case it is not obvious to you just click on the blue link in the beam column for the frequency you require to view the footprint
