Hi i am trying to catch NSS-806 with an 8 foot dish.. and a circular LNBF.. i have the pole in the gound which is 9 feet above ground.. and the dish on it.. the pole is perfectly level.. now i know i sound kinda dumb but i dont know what to do next.. i do not know where to point it. (im in hamilton ontario canada) and what to put in as type of LNB on my receiver.. ive tried everything lol.. ive read all the posts i can read on this site.. not much mentioned about NSS-806.. now if anyone could tell me what info to enter and exactle where i have to point the dish and at what elevation orrr point me in the right direction to finding the information i need.. i would be very very greatful.. thank you

This is the easy part,
Elev: 26.8 Az:130 skew: -33.1

Not much is said, due to needing a C band circular lnb, not ku.
You know this is C band 3.7-4.2?
Being inexperienced, at the first step, you need to pratice with any easier location, and do a lot more reading. Few tackle C band, due to it being extremely harder than ku, and C Band being huge in size, really needs two people.
It takes much longer alone. Plan on extension cords, & small TB & ird at base of site while aiming.

Here are ALL the angles to the satellites from your area. You will need a special LNBF with a Dielectric plate to pick up this circular polarized satellite. The ASC-421 and BSC621-2 LNB's both come with a dielectric plate.

Looks like you fall within the BEAM/Footprint

The L.O. for C-Band LNB's is............

05150

I am in Maryland my 6.0 ft dish works fine on NSS -806.

With a 7.5 mash dish in Toronto and a circular feed you will have no problem receiving NSS- 806.

ADL make International circular feed also.

NSS 806 is a relatively powerful bird and you are within its foot print. We sell a lot of LNBFs with circular slabs that can be inserted for the Intelsats , however, with a good standard linear feed and lnb you should be able to get this bird. You may be down 2 or 3 db but there is a very good chance you can see it without the circular feed. If you have a linear setup, you may have to play with the skew but you May be able to get it. Also, since the bird is east of you, your dish may not be tracked properly. Tracking a big dish Horizon to Horizon is an art! I live in the Cincinnati area andhave received most everything west of Express A3 with a North America beam. Take a meter and track your dish as you go east of due south.

Hi guys. I want to catch NSS-806 but I need to do it with the smalest dish posible because I live in a building apartment where I have to install the dish on top of the building as my apartment face to the other side of the satellite signal. The manager of this building allowed me to do it but he said that the dish can't be big. If somebody can suggest me what kind of dish and LNBF I can get? thaks a lot

Chicago suburbs.
Don't think its possible to get NSS-806 with anything smaller than 6ft dish or bigger, and for the builing manager 6ft is probably too big.

This is a circular polarized satellite so make sure you get a C-Band LNB that will work with circular signals, the BSC621-2 C/Ku LNBF comes with a dielectric plate that lets it be used with circular satellites. (See review area)

As for dish size..........

If you are within the Hemi Beam South America and Carribean footprint ( dB / EIRP 41) you will need at least a 2m dish. (6.5')
