I'm struggling to find 26 east on my 80cm solid dish. I'm after AlJazeera Sport but i'm finding a lot of the tp's are overlapping with other sats like astra 1/2.

I've got a 0.3db lnb btw.

Please help!

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.

Yes you will struggle, it is on the BSS beam and requires a 1.2 mtr dish according to the footprint given HERE

pulling in that channel on my tms 1500ci with 55% signal no picture breakup , triax 90cm dish in west yorkshire

i've found you have to edit the satellite postion to something like 25.3east to avoid signal swamping from 28east

Wod,

Are you using a motorised system to receive 26e? Because the amending position to 25.3 on a fixed system should not really have any effect --- or am I missing something?
