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.

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.
