    Default How to shoot Astra 19 E


    to all mates,
    i am trying to shoot the bird Astra 19E from Hail, Saudi Arabia using 190cm deepset dish but i did not succeed. Is this bird? is same orientation with Hotbird? they have almost the same degree of position Hotbird is 13E and Astra is 19E, can i use side LNB for Astra using same fixed dish for Hotbird? where i should position the side LNB? for Astra? Left or right, top or below. Your kind advise please.

    Many years ago i read about 3m PFA solid of course and modified LNB for Astra 1G/H reception in NW Saudi Arabia. So i would not say that it's completely hopeless but you will need a really huge dish. Even in Afghanistan with 4.50m it's partly possible, so why not in KSA ?

    @bluedeepsky,
    north saudi arabia is out of footprint coverage of Astra, but i am hopeful that i can at least catch the signal spill over of this satellite, i will try a large Prime focus dish hope this time i am lucky enough to catch the bird.

    Don't rely on the official footprints. Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt are also outside but 1G/H are beeing received quite well with dishes from 1.80m Offset - 3m PFA. Further southeast i don't know how quick the signal falls. Please let us know if you achieve anything to get.

    Good luck
