Hi Moonbase my arc is 62.0E to 55.5W was 63.0W but trees across road have grown stopping reception.

Thank you for your contribution, it will be included in this evenings updated version of the table.

Thank you for your contribution. I will add the current figures as your primary arc and we can update it after the leaves have fallen from the tree.

TBH, if the loss of reception of a particular sat is seasonal (notably if due to tree leaves on adjacent properties!), then I think that this should not affect the widths of the Primary or Secondary Arcs - just add notes about the issues with the particular sat(s) to the Comments column! Would save a lot of "frigging around" over the year(s). :D

OTOH, if I could get my neighbours (or their landlords!) to knock down their houses in the Spring, and not then rebuild again thereafter, then my Arcs might well "improve" :D

The primary arc and secondary arc columns can be used for seasonal variations. If leaf fall or other seasonal instances widen the scope of a members arc I will set that as their primary arc and list the lesser scope arc as their secondary arc.

@moonbase
OK - but that means more work for you, and a less realistic picture of what the members can actually achieve overall.

Blind search 45W on the TD5402 M3 - should find China Radio but make sure you then set the SR to 1000 even though it might then show as being a little lower (mine shows 999).

I will need to lash a dish up for 45W and go looking- Ive never been that for round so have no reference points :D

Shame 57E Euro/ME beam has gone - I reckon thats probably my theoretical far eastern limit due to the hill.

Thank you for your contribution, I have updated the table with your details.

Can you please clear up a point for me? In the 1st line of your post you say that you are receiving satellites from 115.5E to 34.5W. However, in your two polar mount arc details none of them show 115.5E or 34.5W?

In the table I have allocated polar mount 1 as your primary arc and polar mount 2 as your secondary arc. If your details need to be edited please let me know and I will make the changes.

Updated table attached below.

with a fixed antenna I can accept an arc from 105.5 e to 34.5 w
