Hi,

Just a quick question:

My Long is 6.167 E
My Lat is 46.283 N
I am using a universal polar mount with 10" actuator.
I have the correct polar axis elevation angle of 46.9 (corrected).
Should I use Sirrus 3 as my south reference for the top of the arc? Using Gorbtrack this appears to be the nearest south sat, also it is shown at the top of the arc.

If you add transponder 11766H, 27500, 3/4 to sirus on your reciver and move your dish to where you think sirus is ie: nearly due south, you should recive a good signal. the channels are Ukrain FTA.

Actually used 7 East as this was a bit closer to south, everything setup OK, just a bit of fine tuning to be done.
