Guys …. I live in Ashland Mass 01721, I have a 30 inch dish and a FSKU-V Universal single LNBF, I was wondering from where I live/ the equipment, can I point my dish and receive :


• Telstar 6 satellite at 93.0°W (Aghapy TV)
• Telstar 12 at 15.0W (Rotana Cinema, Rotana Moussica and Rotana Tarab)

Thanks in advance ….

93w should not be a problem (unless trees or building are in the way)

As far as 15w I don't even know if there is a beam that hits the US.

Good luck. I can't get my dish over that far with a motor here in the mid-west, but since you are on the coast, maybe you can. Trace TV sounds like it'd be worth looking for.

OK thanks for all your help, I’m going to give it a try now, what TP should I use to point the dish, I hate to get no signal because I’m using the wrong TP ?
• Telstar 6 satellite at 93.0°W
• Telstar 12 at 15.0W


PS. It say I have to get my LNBF -45, there is no marks/numbers on the LNBF, how do you know what’s -45 ?

On Telstar 12 you might want to try Pampasat Brazil at 12173 H 3503, I was getting this quite strongly in Ontario last March when I had a motor. I have no idea if it is still there. BTW this was one of the sats that was outside the range of normal USALS operation, had to switch to 1.2 to hit it.

As for the -45 this sounds like the right skew. If a half turn would turn your lnb upside down, then -45 would be a quarter of that, moving counter clockwise from 12 to 10:30.

Pampasat Brazil at 12173 H 3503 is an active transponder but for me 11806 V 7596 is much better.
