    I changed mine from 26 to 25.8 then 25.6 and got a stronger signal.

    Try it, if no good, then go back to 26.
    I'm glad you did what I said.

    it worked for me very well.

    Made new feedhorn for IBU, as a result got lock on additional 6 transponders. This time they belong to Badr6&7. All together 27 lockable transponders. Monitored signal level of 10971V from Badr7, of course it is changing over 24hours but never lost the lock.

    Fair comment mate, but surely the main purpose of this thread is to discuss 25.5E/26E?

    I get some frequencies on 7 west mid-evening on a 1.2m dish in central Scotland.
    Try Qatar on 10719 V
    DVB-S2/QPSK
    MPEG-4 22000 3/4
    as the best quality signal to lock on.

    Today, I've locked 2 transponders from Badr5 West-Africa beam. All channels on 12265H are locked but 12284V has only FTA channels. Will monitor those 2 TPs for longer period of time to see the daily changes of the levels.
    Reception is done on 4.6m antenna, already decorated for X-mas time

    Would surely help to know exactly where in the world you are situated?
    Apologies if I have missed something here!
    (Mind, with 4.6M dish = MASSIVE - guess you could pick up Tata TV in India too?)

    Have you tried Eutelsat 25B at 25.5 east ?

    It will be very interesting to see if you can get anything from that.

    Try 11623 v 27500.

    I have already tried 25.5*E some time ago with no success. Found another 2 transponders @26*E. 12207V (nothing to show) and 12245V with couple of channels in HD quality, like this with the video-bitrate > than 13000 kb/s

    Got it from Second hand market . I did know it was not in use, so I asked whether it can be mine and they said "Why not?!"
    Actually, if you are after same dish I know where is one for sale in Riga. The only difference, it has no actuators and no heating system. I do not know the price. For sure it will cost you less than dismantle and transportation activities.

    Interesting.

    Have you ever tried to get the Israeli channels on 4 west ?

    I know its a long way round from 26 east but it would be interesting if you could get the signal.

    Thanks

    Even if I have installed antenna year ago, motors are still not operational, so I did not experiment a lot with the reception. When I get motors ready, will go through visible ark and see what I can get there.
