Thank you for the quick reply, but can I assume that because my dish is only a bog standard 60cm sky dish I wont be able to get a good signal for 1.0w (transponder 11.189V) to use as a reference for USALS ??

Is your southerly sat 1W or 5W? All I can say is try it and see, or wait for a more knowledgable member to help :)

No, don't use 5W, if you are in central London, then you are going to be at 0 degrees or thereabouts, so 1W will be your closest satellite to due South.

My Satellite Setup
Smart lnb, 1m Gibby dish, Stab motor, TM5200D receiver, 57east to 61west. DTT from Sudbury. Virgin Media broadband.
My Location
So called capital of Suffolk, UK.
Best to look for BBC World on 11325H, 24500, 7/8. With your dish size and location you should easily get a lock on that transponder.
As rolfw states, 5west is too far off of your south satellite, which for London is 1 west.
