    You should be able to get it, depending on your terrain and adjacent vegetation. I live in w.Tx and can go down to at least 37.5 (have not tried anything lower.
    Good luck.

    here's the data from Dishpointer for Mckinney TX:

    27 degrees is pretty high in the sky, unless you have some trees or buildings blocking your LOS you should be able to get it.

    It appears you may be towards the edge of the footprint of 50W if I am reading the chart right. Might need a pretty well-tuned setup to pull them in.

    Also, are those Claro channels ITC? The info on Lyngsat shows the Claro channels on 11050 to 11170 Ku to be encrypted.

    I located in Monterrey, Mexico. I receive with a 75 cm offset, lineal LNB, and with my openbox s10.
    All are encrypted, less Enlace channel.
