80cm dish aligned out near 53E has added in

53E - Express AM6
52.5E - Al Yah 1
52E - Turkmensat / MonacoSat

and a weak signal off
50E - Turksat 4B
From the pics. it looks like those are those are all using a single LNB - Is that true because I've found that I can't differentiate clearly between 52E, 52.5E & 53E using the TD110 (just getting slight changes in relative signal levels when I nudge the dish one way or the other)?

Yup all off one lnb - Belintersat is also there but the signal levels are very low atm - more tweaking needed. I can just get the Belarus tp

What is the internet speed like in the new home?
Openreach have been round and made some changes at the exchange - we were on a 0.5meg line.....

Now Im cooking with gas :D



May not be very impressive to many of you but thats double what Ive ever had at home before!

I'm curious why one of the London servers was chosen. Speedtest seem to think it's less than 50 miles away!

It'll be where the IP address resolves to - I normally see London or Birmingham - its rare for my IP-location to be within a 100 miles of here!

The midweek storms wrecked the 13E dish mount & spun the 28E dish round its the pole so Ive spent what turned into a chilly but very pleasant sunny afternoon fixing things. :)

A nice strong signal from 9E added into the system this afternoon. LNB offset from the 13E lnb. :)

I shall be seeing if I can see any of the stronger tp's from 10E this evening as well.

I was hoping to have a quick look to see what I could see out west but the intense cold beat me.

Ive managed to get brief tp locks on 46E, 3E & 30W this afternoon. Its too cold to do much more than that though so no channels scanned on any of them

46E - lnb held offset from 53E dish
3E - handheld zone 1 dish
30W - handheld zone 1 dish
