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.

Well what you are trying to find is the highest point of the arc that you see in your location and for 3deg longitude as there is no sat transmitting there and no channels on 4degrees E then the top of your arc is going to be 4.8 degrees, i.e. Sirius 2/3 Astra 1c.
It should certainly get you near enough anyhow and from there you can fine tune. Good luck, let us know how you get on.
