Now the cold nights & strong winds have stripped the trees of most of the leaves Ive got some of the Nordic beam Astra 4A channels back - just the H polarity so far typically locking at about 5.5dB.

No sign at all of the V polarity tp's - which is typical of the V's on my setup (offset lnb on the 1m 10E dish!)

A scan off 5 East brings up 53 transponders.Probably a few off adjacent satellites.
Checking them is a job for later.
Analoguesat which Nordic transpoders are of interest.

None really :D They are just right on the edge of availability here. Over the years the weakest tp has been 12015V which carries the Norwegian NRK channels, and is a very rare catch here..

Overhanging trees & offset lnbs make 5E tricky here, but I cant get the dishes any further east to get round them or they will be on the road at the end of the garden & a traffic hazard :D

Never had a problem with any Astra 4A transponders, even on a Penta 85 dish. I am still to lock a signal from SES-5, though.

Its a nice clear day here today, SES 5 Nordic beam is an easy catch for me most of the time, it must be due to your a little further away from the beam CJ, when you get your 1.8 it should pull it in pal :).

I'm getting about 10% Signal Quality at most on the Nordic Beam through a Spiderbox 7000 in Dorset, 1.2m Raven Dish with Inverto Black Ultra LNB. The BSS Nordic beam on the other hand works perfectly
