What is the context for this moonbase? The receive station is obviously not in western Europe

Does there need to be a context?
Are member restricted to posting feeds from satellites within the visible arc of their location, if so I was not aware of this and will cease publication of these feeds?

To satisy your curiosity I will expand a little.

The receiving station was setup by a colleague of mine last December. I was the technical adviser to the project and sourced quite a lot of the equipment and some of the labour.
In addition, I manage the ongoing day to day technical side of the project covering reception issues, remote access to receivers, etc.

Satellites currently within scope of the project are:

AsiaSat 5 at 100.5E
Optus D2 at 152.0E
Optus D1 at 160.0E
Intelsat 19 at 166.0E

Currently 166.0E is slightly problematic, the sidecar LNB may need some attention to increase signal levels.
The setup is controlled remotely apart from local intervention for updates to connectivity and to resolve any issues arising from power outages.

If there are no objections, I will continue to post feeds from the satellites?
