I am trying to hit G-19 (97W) with my 1m mini-bud. Can someone tell me what the strongest transponder is on this bird?

Thanks!

It might be easier to locate G19 with a KU LNBF then swap out to the C-Band LNBF to optimize.

I can usually pick up 3923 V 3422 (BYU) with my 1.2 Meter dish.
Funny enough that is the "feed" frequency
3914 V 3333 is the "official" BYU channel frequency

Both were decently strong but I'm using a 8.5 foot dish there

If your going for AMG, It's NOT happening.

I've got 3 transponders you can try...not sure how strong though.
AMG TV 3990 H 9983
BYU 3910 V 2730
Shopping? 3965 H 3984

Thanks for all your input. Unfortunately, I can't even get a hint of a signal off of this bird. I'm just going to have to "bite the bullet" and get a bigger dish!

i figured amg tv would be the easiest. it booms in on my 7.5' and 10' dishes. it pegs the signal meters even if the dish is off axis a couple of clicks.

Nope AMG is only on my 8.5 Paraclipse. Not enough signal on the 6 footer. There's some decent stuff on 99W unless you wanted something in particular on 97w.
Never experimented with a mini bud so I don't know what you can and can't get. Blind

The issue with AMG is when they moved to 3991 H 9983 next door at 99W is World Harvest (4000 H 26400). The smaller dishes cant block out the "overpowering" signal

It worked fine when they were at 3771 V on the same satellite on the 6 footer
