I was wondering what my furthest west satellite was, so today I looked up 177w in the solar outage calculator to see what time the sun would be at 177w - it listed it as 5:00pm for my location. At that time I swung my dish all the way until it was eclipsing the center plate. I then noted the position on my ASC1. Later, after the outage, I managed to get a decent signal from one transponder even though it is a circular beam. Too bad there is nothing to watch on that satellite, but my question was easily answered. FYI - dishpointer said it was blocked by a small mountain but it wasn't.
