I was blocked for line of sight quite a bit on this satellite but I did manage to see some data frequencies.

The site allows selection of satellite positions by footprint/beam.
Yes I know but I don’t think it tells the strongest and weakest TPS in any given area.

Thats because it changes with location!You can get a general idea from the beam maps - thats the best you will get

Most folk dont bother with much past 53E as the elevation is so low - trees houses & hills tend to get in the way

Didn't think I could get 68E any more owing to trees, but surprised myself, a bit like AM radio though signal comes and goes, near Uttoxeter..20210401_090332.jpg20210401_090509.jpg

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The site - in conjunction with others such as Lyngsat - additionally provides a history of valid transponder frequencies and the dates they were accessible.

Transponder reception is also a result of the transmission parameters. Those with low symbol rate can often be received well outside the region given by the footprint.

Use of such sites - Lyngsat included - even if not contributing gives you the chance to participate proactively in new channel searches without waiting for other members to answer.

Can you please tell me what size dish do you use for 62 East ?

As I am looking to add this to my arc with a new installation.

It's too low on the horizon for me but @Chr0nik has recently received it with 14db on a 1.2M:
