There is somebody needing desperately help in Kandahar (Afghanistan). He is trying to receive the german Das Erste/ARD (11604H) and ZDF (11054H) on Hotbird 6 with a 1.20m dish. He is located in the 42dbW zone so if the footprint is equal to the real conditions he should find at least weak signal but there is absolutely nothing although he has aligned exactly the dish to 13E as shown at http://s5.directupload.net/file/d/1365/tkpihxt7_jpg.htm.
If anybody is nearby and could help this would be great. I really wonder if 1.20m are sufficient there but i fear that not reading the difficulties occur in many pakistani locations.
Any help ?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Thanks for your interest Tranquility but the fact that you are using a dish with double surface might make the difference. Further on you are 600km away from Kandahar.
Are you aware of anybody in Peshawar receiving these 2 frequencies with only 1.20m ?
Hello Guys !
I am in main Peshawar.i am being able to receive the mentioned channels on my 8 feet solid clearly. no probs
The person that is interested in these 2 frequencies won't stay long there so i don't think it's worth to get a bigger dish from Pakistan. That's why i was asking if it's possible with his existing 1.20m.
deep blue sky cant u get a bigger dish from kabul i guess they are some good satellite shops there.
