    Does anyone receive 3° west feeds

    There is feed reported today on 3° west but I can't tune it in. It was reported as 11064 V 9998 MPEG 4 - 4:2:0 - HDTV

    But I can't get a signal here on a 120cm dish in SE England.

    What results do others get for these 3°w feeds?

    Are you certain it was on 3 West, or could it have been on 3 East?
    Can you please provide more detail, regarding the feed, is it still broadcasting?

    There is an 11064 H 8333 on 3 West, but that's on a South African beam, so not available in Europe.

    Here are the listed satellite beams, for 3 West:

    There is a test card listed on 11462 V 3062 DVB-S2 QPSK 1/2, that you can try.

    3w getting popular for footy, I get the odd feed on 3w occasionally but not a sniff of epl feeds there using 1.1 in north east. wouldn't be surprised if there are even more there using ns3/ns4 modulation :(

    Was that the Utd game? No, I couldn't get it on my 1.5m gibby, I can usually get these, though they are really weak. Not a sniff today, also the City game on 24.5w was weaker than usual too.

    Yes, it was the united game feed I tested, so the feed would have only lasted a short time after my post.

    I have just tried the test card on 11462 V 3062 DVB-S2 QPSK 1/2, and get a signal even in the heavy cloud cover that I have today. The video shows an ABS logo, so I am definitely on 3°west. The signal is very poor, but it does enable me to peak the dish alignment for 3°west.

    Strange that I could not get anything for the football feed yesterday, when the weather was clearer.

    Thanks for all the replies

    Football feeds, and other sports feeds, are often transmitted at a weaker signal, as we're not supposed to view them, due to copyright deals.
    I watched the United game on 30W, not a feed, and you didn't miss a lot, United were poor, again, with the exception of one piece of brilliance, from Pogba, faking a volley and laying the ball off perfectly for Fred to score.
    I'm still waiting for Alexis Sanchez to show what he's capable of, I've seen glimpses, with brilliant control, at times, but I thought he needed a pre-season, with United, to get into the groove, but we had the World Cup, so he still hasn't had that, but he should be doing better, by now, so is the problem with Sanchez or the coaching staff?

    I am in extreme SE UK with a 1.1 Triax dish and receive 3W.
    At the moment reception is awful due to high winds, heavy rain and my dish needs tweaking due to several windy periods battering it.
    I am not bothering with the tweaking as I am going to replace the Triax with a 1.25 Gibby which I have ready.

    Yes 3W was just about ok for me BBC Motd [ SiS Live ]
    Feed for Man U V Wolves
    Signal was very low just 8.6db 62% on my 2 meter prime focus dish so again very reduced signal and big dish required like any EPL Feeds that are broadcasting in KU Band , i believe for Copyright reasons etc.. SiS on purpose do reduce their EPL signals right down to bear minimum
    i have yet to see any EPL Feed much higher than 9db which pretty much eliminates anyone watching on a smaller size dish below 1.6 meter ,
    SiS usually broadcast @ 24.5 WEST , 3 WEST , on a rare occasion 10 East and 28.2 East ,
    they choose obscure sats such as @ 24.5 WEST , 3 WEST as they are the most difficult to lock on smaller sized dishes .
    There was a period of time a few years back when SiS did not bother to hide their feeds but i believe that day has long gone now : )
