I wont get much past 52E due to a hill but I should have clear skies out well out west if there is anything worth chasing past 34.5W. Will have to have a look.

My single 1m Orbital dish has done 68.5E all the way to 61W. However, due to some obstruction, these days the limit is 66E to the east but I have managed just now to lock onto a data feed at 63W (11634V SR: 34282) so my westerly range is not impaired. As was said by @william-1 though, not much out there beyond 34.5W at all these days :(

I am pleased to see that my old Jaeger SMR 1224 is still in service on your big arc :)
Your arc details will be included to this evenings update.

There is not much past 34.5° West these days 99% data streams for Air / Sea communications & navigation :(
In Ku, yes. In C band, this is where the interesting stuff starts. Especially if you speak Spanish/Portuguese!

For me C -Band is 66E-61W although 65W is LOS but I've nothing to confirm reception. Ku on my 1.2 Gib is 70E-63W but my horizon is flat in that direction so in theory it's 75W. If Mikefal appears he can confirm his 1.2m CM does 76.5E-61W

I will add the Ku arc of 70.0E - 63.0W into the table as your primary arc. As your confirmed C-Band arc is within the extremities of your Ku arc I will hold back from entering it for now. If you get any confirmed locks of TV, Radio or Data further East or West in either C-Band or Ku-Band please let me know and I will make the appropriate edits to your entry in the table.

I will wait for confirmation from Mikefal before creating an entry for him.

To all members - please only declare arc extremity figures for confirmed locks of TV, Radio or Data and not theoretical figures based on local geography and potential line of sight to satellites.

One channel is enough to consider the satellite is part of your arc.

Minor error in my original listing - I get to 53E not 52E :D Not that one degree will make any difference at all :-rofl2

Thank you for your input, for only two fixed satellites I am not sure if it can be considered an arc. If you get your setup motorised or add a good few more fixed dishes please upload your details and I will add them to the table.

This mornings table attached below. The only change is a minor adjustment to the arc figures for "Analoguesat".

Moves to a new house recently, but still in Scotland. I took my Fibo 1.2m with me. I lost some eastern ark but got a better signal on about the 45 east part of the arc. I also now have better coverage on the western ark. I can confirm signal from 53 east and from 45 west. I have a blockage at 8 west due to an amateur radio mast in the next garden. The owner kindly cut down his holy tree which allowed Hispatat to come through loud and clear! I can probably go further to the west but don't have a satellite to check. East is blocked by a roof top so I think I may be at my limit there now.
