I was messing about with my dish and I notice that I don't get anything beyond 28.2E. I am not having any problems with my setup but I want to make sure that my dish is properly aligned so wondered if there is anything beyond 28.2E that I should be able to view but I am not getting in case the dish is misaligned.

I am not too fussed if its EMU or FTA just want to make sure that I am getting it if is supposed to be available, sad I know but I think we just spend the time fidlling with our setup rather than actually watching the tv. Hellasat is supposed to be on 39E so will check to see if i can view anything on there as well Turksat on 42E.

W: 58, 45, 43, 34.5, 30, 27.5, 22, 18, 15, 12.5, 8, 7, 5, 0.8
E: 4, 4.8, 7, 9, 10, 13, 16, 19.2, 21.6, 23.5, 26, 33, 36, 39, 40, 42, 45, 53, 57

Not tested the channels on the West but looking at your list I am definitely not getting anything past 28.2E. I am getting SNR of 92% or more on 1E, 13E 16E, 19E and 28.2E so I was assuming that I was properly aligned but it looks like I am missing the arc. I think digidude did a list of half a dozen satellites /channels to align against so will have to see if I can dig that post out.
