Both Satmex 5 and 6 are very forgiving/receivable on C-band in the Lower 48 United States from what I understand. But their still location dependent.

I've not had much of a problem getting C-band on either with my 8-footer in Oregon, however I cannot get some channels that are supposedly available to North America.

on C-Band I can get almost everything with a 6 footer

Were there specific channels you were looking at getting or just the "free for all" :) ?

Try to reverse the polarity of your lnbf.

It should give you some more channels and transponders.

Check out the "Primestar 84E/BSC621-2 LNBF Experiment" thread on this forum.

Lots of info and testing listed.

I can get most of satmex 5 & 6 with my 39in dish.

And alot more with its replacement 48in dish. :)

What does your dish look like?

.... location dependent.
Perhaps this is the key point.
I remember reading the same.
Where are you located, manuelpaz?
Perhaps you are not in a good coverage area, and require a larger dish..?.

DreamFox has done a good alignment job with his 4 foot dish.
You should read his notes and those of others who've tried C-band on small dishes.
Can be very tedious.
Show us some pictures. Maybe someone will have a suggestion.

Find and click on the birds of choice, on the Satbeams site.
Then, explore each of the beams covering North America.
Choose any C-band beams and look to see how hot they are in your area.
It might explain why others get the signal and you don't.
Not suggesting the site and data are an absolute accurate resource, but relatively speaking, you can see how you stand compared to others. :)

Nice pair of dishes on that roof top near Downtown L.A.
I am also planning to get 113w and 116w C-band FTA channels using a Fortec 6ft dish I just ordered from Sadoun via ebay.

Although I have a 39" Winegard offset and a 1.2m dish as well, I went ahead with the 1.8m.
