I am located in Co Fermanagh at Long 54.23 N & lat 7.38 W and whilst the instructions on the manhatten 140 motor suggest Hotbird I wonder if this is correct for this location Help Please..

5 West would be OK, 8 West would be better, there isn't much on there but you should be able to see the Europe beam from your location. :)

PS. you have your longitude and lattitude reversed. :)

If youb are installing youre own motorised kit, you will need to set the motor up so its aligned on the satellite nearest south for you FIRST. It will be Atlantic bIrd 8W for you.

Thanks everybody for the valuable info and yes I did get longitude and latutude mixed up (typing error.) Will try to set everything up soon ( when rain stops) and when I cut down my neighbour's 20 foot conifer hedge. Anyone got a chain saw I could borrow ????
many thanks gilleroo
