Hello Doggy

Probably E19.2 old Analogue $ky dish.

What receiver/s do you have?

Regards

Hello Doggy

If you were getting ITV News and Shopping Chanels from this dish, then it is almost certainly pointing at E28.

This is the current $ky Digital position.

If you check the parameters here :

http://www.satcodx2.com/_data/0282.txt

and here:

http://www.satcodx2.com/_data/0285.txt

You should find the FTA programmes you can expect to receive.

With a bit of luck you should also get the BBC Channels in the next ccouple of months.

There is no Astra/Hotbird Satellite at 1W, they are at E19.2 and E13.

Hope this is of help, but if not do come back again, and we will try to give you further assistance.

Kind regards
