My question is will it be quite easy from there to track the other several satellites i wanna use or have i missed something wanna try sort it for weekend
Also, what transponders are best to tune to
80cm dish motorised and spiderbox 9000hd
The one part you must take some time over is the initial mounting pole, you must take pains to get that pole truly vertical. Not only on the left and right sides but the front and back as well.
Use a spirit level and TAKE YOUR TIME over this as it's THE most important thing when setting up a motor.
Any error in the vertically of the mounting pole will be magnified by the number of degrees the motor tracks.
A poorly mounted pole might well bring in say Thor, Sirius and the closer satellites but be well out at say Astra2 or Hispasat.
So this mundane part of installation turns out to be of paramount importance, don't skimp on this one point.
If your motor is USALS compatible and the installer does a good job (£90 is not unreasonable) then you will get whatever span can be achieved from your location.
From my location I can span from 45 east to 30 west no problem except for Nilesat 7 west which would need a 2 mtr dish and my wife says NO.
It is very easy to set the dish on one sat (Thor in your case) and have EVERY vital adjustable angle set WRONG!!
Do yourself a favour, install the patch and a channel list (Billybits). Have your installer set your latitude and longitude in your Spiderbox, then use USALS as the means of finding all the sats. Check as a minimum, 1w, 19e 28e & 30w.
i have a gps on my telescope so i know my co-ordinates spot on i also know how to put this in the box i think what you are saying is if the engineer does a good job and finds my sat for me and everything is parrallell and set up properly my box should do he job for me
I hope im right
By the way billybits where are his channel lists
Decimal coordinates would look something like 54.10N 0.2w (a minus indication means west no minus means east e.g. -0.2 is 0.2W, 0.2 is 0.2E.
Base sixty coordinates would look something like 54'30'30N and 00'2'2 W
