I've been playing around with trying to get the Ku side of 180.0 E in California with my 29"x39" old Primestar dish. I had success but will move on now since I don't understand that much French. Just a note that Lyngsat lists a wrong symbol rate. 11155V should have a SR of 30000.

Here's the dish I'm using.

Oh fun! I did the same thing a few years ago. At that time I don't think France 24 or France Info were FTA (unless those are relays on the Premiere channels).

Yes, nice to watch the Festival Tahiti for a while with the dancers but once they started banging those drums I quit.

Martyn, I did see your post but was unable to add to it. I thought by using the same title on the thread it may merge or give me an error but it started a new thread.

I think the footprint gets into West Texas so if you have no obstructions the western third of the U.S. may be able to receive it.

ABC Australia is still there but on C-Band with circular polarization. Will watch The World This Week soon plus I’m watching the Food Safari series and Planet America

The Tahiti and French Polynesia are on Ku with linear polarization and the need for a universal lnb. I was going to put on my C/Ku combo feed but didn’t know how the slab would affect the Ku reception but realized the Ku in the combo is standard so it wouldn’t work.
