    There are four beams off Hellas Sat 39E. Two which you should get, two you won't.

    The two you should get are in a footprint showing 52db, so a dish half the size should work. Don't forget that it will be fairly low in the sky, so make sure there are no obstructions.

    I get this loud and clear with 85cm in Derby. Probably suffering from obstructions, as you should get it with your dish size.

    what type of motor are you using if disequ usals then the motor should find the sat for you provided everything set up properly if like me you're using 36V motor go to ******* and track slowly west untill you find helas or count the pulses
