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.

and welcome to the forum. Can I assume you are in the USA?
Looking at Lyngsat for that sat Echo 7 on 119deg which you can do by clicking here suggests that most channels are nagra 1 and 2 as is 110deg, which you say you can receive OK even though they are circular polarised. I can only assume therefore it is a mechanical setup problem you have. I am not the best person (with my home made assembly) to be able to advise you especially not knowing your reference satellites out there. I am sure someone will help if possible .
