I did this a while back and got G3 really good

83" is my due south but my view of sky is 80 deg and everything east... due to roof overhang :(
my neighbor gave me a dish 500 dish which is slightly bigger and i will be able to adjust for skew
i just need to drill a hole to screw the lnb in

So are AMC5 and G3 the only Ku satellites that are strong enough to hit with a 18" dish and a Linear LNB? I've heard you guys talking AMC4 being so strong, anyone tried it?

G3 is one off my true south so it was easy :)

AMC4 has KUIL & 3ABN which are screaming in. I picked those up with a Phase II no problems.

I think you could probably get the religious channel on AMC6 (72W) if skewed properly

The religious channel on AMC-6 is SCREAMING in here right now during the heavy storm at 94% signal Quality on the DVB World box (Shows lower signal quality)

WOW!

Are the other Adventist stations coming in too, or just 3ABN?

97W is my true south, but with week transponders, it shouldn't work, right?

Hope Network is lower on a smaller dish but should be able to be picked up. The rest, nada

you can try. Doesn't hurt to tinker and see what you can get :)
