I'm looking for any info on the best way to receive inclined orbit sats.I know that they cover a figure of eight flightpath but what is the best way of catching the max signal?Probably analoguesat or rd100 should know best.Any tips lads?I hope to get a 1.8m dish pretty soon and am trying more than anything to get intelsat903 *20w.I can get it at certain times but obviously it then goes out of sight.GET THE THINKING CAPS ON :-worship

Have a look at this site -

http://www.n2yo.com/?s=18350

Gives you real-time tracking info for any satellite.

(Think you mean Intelsat 603)

how many sats over Europe are inclined? Is it really worth getting the mount moded for inclined sats?

That bookies has served you well!:)

Look forward to seeing the pics.;)

I am thinking about getting the Jaegar 1224 for my Greg, might go for the inclined version.

Your location doesn't matter (as long as you can see the sat of course).

The bottom r/hand pic gives you a general idea where your chosen sat is +/- the arc.
Click on 'Track It' and the real time position info square tells you the degree of inclination +/- the arc.

Cheers Llew,will give it a blast but it gives my location as London because it uses your IP address. Crossbones will get pics up on Monday when wife is at work:-rofl2 Hope the 1.2 or 1.8 give me enough signal to catch it.The1.2 from the bookies has lay in the garden for about 4years, cost £20, for goodness sake the bracket alone must be woth about £300 as its fully galvanised.Roll on Monday!
