I think I am pulling in Star One C2 at 70d but it could also be Star One C1 at 65d.
Or something else between 63 and 72 ds.
Here is what I am getting:
service 1, Rodobens, JF, estaceo tv, skystream, tv rbn, band, esperte interativ,
OI tv, play tv, tv tibagi, gs tv1 and ch1.
Signals are coming in very strong in N central Florida.
Assume it is only C-band. Haven't tried KU.
Need to know where this is located because I am also
having trouble finding the sat at 72 degrees.
Thanks for any help.

That looks to definitely be 65 deg Star One C1.

Yes, I get this bird in north FL good but it's signal drops off as you go further north.

Thanks for all the help but I don't think it matches what I asked above.
Maybe there is something that I'm missing.

I'd say you found StarOne C1 at 65W being all freqs and SR's are within tolerance.
Your TP's, above those supplied
From TheTechGuru attached page-

3921 H/V 27550,
3920 H 27500

4000 h 3333,
4008 H 3333

3865 h/v 3331,
3864 H 3333

3847 h/v 4445.
3847 H 4444

3833 h/v 3571,
3832 H 3571

3802 h/v 29999,
3800 H 27500 SR mismatch

3736 h 1808,
3736 H 1808

3705 h/v 2460,
3705 H 3216 SR mismatch

4009 v 3333,
4008 H 3333

3767 v 3335,
3765 H 3336

3763 v 2220
no match

except for 3, as noted above.
Tolerance freq +- 3 (usually, other factors may increase this, but not too much)
SR's usually are within 50 or so. (Other factors may increase this)
The SR mismatchs may be because the uplinkers have changed parameters since the page was published. STAR ONE - Uma Empresa Embratel shows one footprint which covers Mexico Cuba and Florida. Nice find.

Thanks again for the help.
The Freq plus the SR differences and the name differences had me
totally confused.
My click count for 63 degrees is 5551 and the click count for 65 would be 5580.
That's 29 clicks for 2 degrees which doesn't make any sense.
5 or 6 clicks is what I figure for each degree.
But what do I know.

Not knowing if your using a 4DTV or another device to move your dish but when the dish is that far over the count your seeing could be off by the age of the actuator loosing count or even the dish mount having problems at that position. Your best bet might be putting a small signal meter inline and watching it when hunting for signals, find one satellite you know and then watch the meter, that's what I use for a backup as I use a 4DTV as a disk mover.

I am not using any 4dtv devices. The actuator is about 6 months old.
The dish is being moved with a Uniden SQ530. I found out that the
Gbox won't work with my new Chaparral corotor ll plus so I will use
the Uniden until it drops. By then Sadoun will have an Hbox, Ibox,
Jbox etc. There's money to be made with one that will handle the
Chaparral.
I have an old Pico Peaker (model pp-1450) that I think only works for
analog. You will have to tell me if it will work with my setup as I really
don't know.
Am using a Openbox s9 receiver.
