Well I'm trying to get G10R this hot Sunday morning and up on the roof with all the gear.I have found 119 and went alittle further west and down a little, then got a signal.
It is on 11.718 H and a SR of 27.692, all those channels are scrambled so where am i and is there a strong TP to look for.
Also quite hard to see the TV monitor outside.

sounds like you are on 127, need to move it a little east now :)

11799 V 26660 is one of the stronger ones to get (may show as 11800 in your receiver for frequency)

Thanks Guys, it looks like i managed to pull it in although the Q is about 64% on my coolsat and jumping around a little.The wind is gusting to 70 km per hr here besides being hot.
I have to tighten up the 33 in dish (cheap type) and maybe put a support on it as I have it strapped to the chimney.
Meanwhile thats not too bad considering G10R is only about 5 deg on my western horizon.

I am thinking Tony or Pete could combine the best of the finding g10 posts and put it in the FAQ section.This has got to be one of the most often asked for info.

12114 comes in at 93-94% on my Coolsat 5k.
11799 is 87-88%.

well that 33 in dish is more of the flimsey type with 2 bolts on the bracket to hold it onto the post and that wind is out of the west head on into the dish. Will have to see what happens when the wind drops may be able to tweak it some.Also got the skew set to 40 deg is that right I'm at 47 N and 52 west.

I was going to say the same thing.

My 90cm Fortec looks like it's looking straight to the horizon but not that low!

BTW I'm at 45N, 79W.
