Looks like a good night to scan 5E.

Im getting weak signals off a handful of the Nordic beam transponder I almost never see coming up on my scans.

Bugger all worth watching of course as I dont have any subscriptions for the tp's Im getting and theres not a lot fta

:D

Im just about locking 1st Baltic Music fta on 11843H, but its nowhere near watchable.

This is on an offset lnb on the 1m dish aligned onto 9/10E thats only roughly aligned onto 5E - I'll have to see what I can do to improve it now :D

Ive always had problems with the Nordic beam stuff - even when the 85cm Penta was on 5E the 4A Nordics were a rare catch.

Maybe Im under a null

:D

At my location I find that the 1W Nordic beams are much weaker so I've got the dish focused on that, the 5E Nordics are significantly stronger (except of course SES5 which I can't get at all!) so using the offset LNB, both satellites using Black Ultra LNBs.

AS, are you getting anything off SES-5?

Surprised that 4A is weak at your end - it's a relatively strong satellite in the UK

Ive got a 16 port diseqc switch on order - 5E will be the first extra lnb to be hooked up to the Duo.

It will have to be a weekend or xmas holiday job installing it tho - theres just too few hours of sunlight up here in the winter. Sunset is officially 15.55 this week - although the sun has dropped down behind the hills to the west long before that

The SES 5 Nordic beam is an easy catch here CJ.
