I'm in the general LA area. I'll aim my Birdview over that way and see what I get tonight. I used to look in on that satellite once in a while, but not lately. I'll get back tomorrow

1) SatBeams - Satellite Coverage Maps - Sat Footprint Intelsat 16 (IS-16) / Intelsat 9 (IS 9, PAS 9) shows you in the middle of the Americas beam, so should be no problem. I'm at 48N 97W and have the following on the channels you ask about. (there's many more, various language channels on it)
Al Jazeera International (English language) - OK
France 24 Français - OK
BBC World News - Scrambled (BBC Radio I have on Intelsat 805 at 55.5°W - LyngSat)
ART Movies America - Scrambled
ART America - Scrambled
Al Jazeera Channel - Scrambled
MBC International - OK
ART Tarab - scrambled
(Al Jazeera English (C & Ku), France 24 (C) are also available CONUS.)
Zoom in on your location the page above, and click Hybred or
Satellite Finder / Dish Pointing Calculator with Google Maps | DishPointer.com, punch in your coordinates and satellite, zoom in to check your Line Of Site(LOS) for any obstructions.
2) A 6ft dish should suffice, I use a 10. It's all high Q's here.
3) ANy receiver capable of DVB-S should work(although some channels may use an audio stream that is not decoded)
4) A C band LNBF.
5) For a BUD, I'd recommend an actuator, and a vbox or gbox to run it.

Welcome to SatelliteGuys!:) We'll be happy to answer your questions and get you going. Researching the threads will uncover answers to just about all your questions. And if something doesn't make sense, just start a new thread. A trick I've used to search the site is search via google.com, but add "site:satelliteguys.us" without the quotes after you've entered your search terms. Example - C band LNBF site:satelliteguys.us
I use a DMX241(NLA)* LNBF with very good results on C band. The GBox does a wonderful job of moving the dish on my system. Others use the VBox, *Here's links to available Cband LNBF's at 2 of the sites sponsors(links on top of pages here)ESX241 C Band LNBF | WS International C Band LNB LNBF Distributor and LNBF Satellite AV, LLC - Satellite Broadcaster Support and Equipment Distribution

Took me awhile. Had to tweak my dish so as not to lose any I regularly use.

I got a few latino stations and a few Christian stations on 58 but none of the stations you are going for.

Sorry for the delay
