As any one managed to pick up anything on 40 east Express ? all ive managed to get was 1 channel called Al Hurrya 11.154 v 2893, signal quality is ok on 55%.
Also is 21.6 east Eutelsat out of reach for north east uk ?
and does anyone know the best way to try and lock on the 20 west Intelsat 603 and 31.5 west Intelsat 801 satellites, ive typed in all the feed listings i can for theese satellites but dont seem to get anything active to pick up a signal.

thanks Tim :)

W6 at 21.5E is well out of range - its firing at the Mediterranean area, and probably requires 1.5m dish minimum for you.

801 is C-band only.

603 is an Iinclined (wobbly) sat, and you need to keep trying at different times of the day

31W was binned a few weeks ago, so its hardly surprising you cant get anything off it! Its currently in graveyard orbit

thanks,
for east yorkshire do you reckon a 1.5 Gibertini dish might give us a shout for 21.6 east, as i was thinking of upgrading the dish size anyway, was hoping to maybe pull something in off 7w Nilesat with a bit of luck with a 1.5 dish.

thanks Tim :)
