Re: 42 East Ka ....
Can't make my mind up if the signal around 18705 L is two small ones or not

Just one and the carrier at 18598.50096MHz is just that.
Plot using a band B LNB and clipping the roof line so I don't get much SNR. Uncompensated for gain slope.

John,
I use a CM 1.2m dish on an H to H mount with Elevation adjustment. The LNB is an XMW R9216AF with a PTFE slab imported from South Korea. I am also unable to resolve the signal on 18705L. I wonder if there's a different beam for that signal?

Just looking back to March 26th - 2018 Simon, almost identical plot then but 18.701 L looking a lot stronger with me just north of Nottingham.

I checked the satellite this morning and only 18591L and 18668L locked up. On 18668L Capital TV Ghana has left. 18591L is very robust with its fec=1/2.

Yeah, had a look around mid-day with quite overcast skies in the signal path and levels were really low as well.
