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.
