I can easily find Astra 1 but cannot find Astra 2 using Galaxis receiver. No visual obstructions. LNB 9.5 - 10.6. Any suggestions why ? Is Astra 1 analog hence easier to find? I am in Mallorca.

1.6m and I have a pretty acurate azimuth bearing.

The elevation is lower for Astra 2, if you are using a digital receiver as a meter, remember that it takes a couple of seconds to react. It also depends which transponder you are looking for, as depending on where you are in Spain, even a 1.6m dish will not receive all of the transponders.
