    Not likely. The difference in sat position is 25 degrees.

    I have a 2.4m with dish on AS3 105E. Then I have AS2 at 100E, PalapaC2 at 113E and Telkom at 108E all Cband. The last and 5th LNB is a ku band universal for a prime focus dish on NNS6 95E Pentagon channel.

    All these sats are within 10 degrees of 105E and this is a large solid dish.

    You get a lot of loss with skewed lnb's but not a problem really.

    But 25 degress separation is just too far inmo.
    If Evolution works, why so many idiots?

    Yes sir it is posible to get these two satellites on one 8ft dish but you have to focuss the dish towards Express 6A and put 2nd LNB for Asiasat 3S on the left side of the dish ( If you are standing infront of dish).
    Through this way you can get one more advantage. You can get Express 6A with thaicom on the same LNB. So you can watch three satellites with two LNBs.

    Default my views

    In most of the European countries, satellite viewers use a 90cm Toroidal Dish with 6 LNB arm provision.
    They may have one with a larger size Dish.
    Can some European Satellite Hobbists please help.

    Sir only feed horn can not fix for 2nd LNB. You need a "patti'' ( Strip ) to fix an extra LNB and an arm to give spourt to the Patti because to get Asiasat 3S from Express 6A you need a long Patti and due to long length it must need a spourt.

    thanks for reply Asif dear! I called you on phone last day but you were unavailable,,,I need your help once again.
    As you recommended a strip to fix another LNB,,,can you tell me the size of that strip and supporting rod will be used obviously.
    Prof.Nusrat gave me your contact no.
    thanks for helping me.

    Sir its my bad luck that you called me and I was not available at home. You can call on my home no today at after 9pm today or on mobile any time But its batter to call on home no because mobile signals are not so good in my village.
    And sir you need round about 2ft long strip to get Asiasat 3S from Express 6A and there is no fix size for supporting rod. When you get maximum signals you can give support the strip from anywhere.
    Or you can make another focus with three rods for more strength.
    First you check the signals then make another focus there and fix the feed horn there.
