My Dish/Motor is mounted on the south end of the east wall. On the south wall is a conservatory which makes iot difficult to mount a dish on the south wall without removing glass.

the furthest west I can swing my dish without it fouling on the wall is 30W.
Are there any satellites further west than that, that are worth receiving?

In my opinion no, 30W is the last real good one west, unless you are religious and want to see some channels on 43W. After that there is not much left. 45W and 58W is not worth driving to. 61W only has one Europe beam but not activated so far. So to make it short. 30W is currently one of the best but probably not for very long, since encryption changes arounfd the corner ;)

Thanks

Not worth the major work to move the dish on to the south wall then.
