To get watchable reception from this this satellite has been one of my - sat hobby aims for years - its taken some work - and careful positioning of the rebuilt 3 m Prodelin - looking through a gap in the outbuildings to achieve - but i,m more than happy with the result I,v locked all the listed transponders - a couple of the weaker ones are suffering some fading / loss of lock, from the low elevation here ( 3.8 ) but otherwise all is good .. and around 3/4 of the channels are FTA too - some featuring some interesting Indian music - which is what i hoped for :cool:
