Over here at 79.3 even with 30W sat higher in the sky with lots of bumps and trees no hope at all in pointing that far east. I think you lucked out with flat land and no trees.Then again... you get tornadoes.

Thank you. Yes, the signal is strong and the channels pop in everytime like a snap! I usually watch Cubavision on TP 11884 V (signal quality is currently showing 80% on my AZBox).
Tonight I am logging in 21 active TPs with 61 ITC TV and 58 ITC RADIO channels. The weather is not the best for scanning right now, but it is fair. Since I do have to look through a lot of the atmosphere it does diminish the signal quality at times when it is heavy overcast or raining.

The dish is in quite an open area of the yard and the wind blows all the snow away from the base of the dish. It's kinda "self-cleaning". Bad part of where it is located is that certain times in the spring, the wind direction (and strong gusts) hit my dish at just the right angle and starts it "fluttering". The dish and the LNBF support begin to set up their own harmonic vibrations and if they are not in sync, I can detect quick blips in the signal quality that cause the video and audio to drop out for a split second. At times, this can be very annoying.
At my location, I would only have a LOS to as far as 20°W, but I won't get there with my motor. I would have to set up a fixed point dish to test the sats between 20°W and 30°W. I am almost at the physical limits of the motor travel when at 30°W and I can only go a degree or two more.
