I have a motorized 30" FTA dish and I am enjoying the variety of international programming available on the main USA satellite belt (mainly Telstar 5). I would like to extend my reach to Telstar 11. It is fairly low in the sky at 37.5 degrees (AZ 117.49, EL 31.82). I live in Jacksonville, Florida.
I know that I will need to purchase at least a one meter dish, preferably a 1.2 meter dish so I can get some channels on T11.
Does anyone here have any experience viewing a satellite so low in the horizon?
Also, I am having a devil of a time finding Galaxy 10R. I am not sure if my dish can turn to that area of the sky or what. It is supposed to be one of those horizon to horizon motors. As far as I can tell there are no obstructions. The LNB settings are Lo 10750.
One more thing.... where is a good supplier of larger dishes? Thanks for your help.

I'm in MN and can get T11 no problem. I can get all the way over to Hispasat 1C (30 W). All I'm using is a 30" dish.

In MN the elevation is around 15
The reason I had aimed at T11 was because of Ohio News network (ONN), but now they moved. I never tried to get the Russian channels.
Its the normal settings (LO 10750) Looks like they're at 12000 H 3254, 12041 V 3617 and 12051 V 3617
I'll try it tonight to see if it will work. If I can get it in MN, then you surely should be able to in FL.
Yep! I get the Russian channels !
