Hi there - I assume you mean Eutelsat W2 at 16E.

The DigitAlb package is listed on Lyngsat (http://www.lyngsat.com/ew2.html)
as 11092 V 32000 5/6.

This could well be your problem as 11082 H is listed as Elpitel. :)

As Lancelot says, plus low symbol rate transponders are not as easy to zero in on.

W2 is a strange satellite. Thanks to most of the transponders running in a split frequency mode, the power levels are all over the place.
