I'm not convinced those Intelsat footprint maps for 10-02 are very accurate. For example, I shouldn't have any problems with Spot 3 in Finland (about 51dBW in the north and about 53dBW in the south according to official footprint maps) and yet the signal levels are way down compared to the Thor satellites. I can only just receive spot 3 with no rain margin in the north of Finland on a 60cm dish and in the south my 35cm dish only get part time reception. The Thor satellites come in nice and strong on both dishes (which is what I mainly want anyway).
