Hi,

Just recently set up my first sat system (Dreambox 500S, Stab HH120, Gibertini 85cm, Gold 0.3dB LN:cool:. I have got gotoxx working and can get good signals from 53E to 30W (so far). From what I can make out I have a clear line of sight to 42E, but nothing at all when manual or automatic scanning. The problem I do have, is that my dreambox does not step the motor correctly when manually positioning (it often continues driving the rotor without a command - Gemini v1.05 bug I guess). However, if I go to 39E and then drive to Turksat the motor looks like it is moving about the correct distance. So after all this waffle, I guess I just would like to know if it should be easy to get Turksat/Eurasiasat 42E with a 85cm dish from the East Midlands (52N and 0.5W to be precise).

Cheers
Schnabeltier

you can get turksat with an 88cm dish in the blackpool area,so i dont see any reason why you shouldnt be able to pick it up in the midlands.might need a slight elevation adjustment,then again might not.
