Yesterday I decided to have a look for far east sats 62 t0 68.5 East.I think that at sometime in the past I have got transponders from 62 East.Not sure about 68.5 East though.To my surprise I got Five transponders from 68.5 East.Not listed any ware though so I am not sure if they are from 68.5 east.The dish looks to be at the right place.Getting plenty of Transponders from 52 and 53 East.The motor seems to be tracking ok.
There is a 11595 V 2500 on 66 E
TBS 6983 100cm Dish

If you think it'll help,I'm posting the spectrum with transponders at 68.5E with 1.50m antenna to compare what's to compare between our different reception areas.

The answer is Nay.The dish has moved it is at 1 West not 1.5 West where it should be.
Something that I did not expect. That dish has not moved for years.
I have no idea where those transponders are from.

Those transponders are from 60.0E Intelsat 33e!.
Take a look at my spectrum and,I hope,you'll be convinced.So,it looks like your antenna definitely reaches 60.0E,elevation 8.05°.
Not bad considering your geographical position.From your location,elevation of 0.52°, you can receive the last satellite at 74.0E! It is only possible to receive this satellite if the azimuth is correctly adjusted.

Knowing that York is the county town of Yorkshire,then here's what the AZ/EL computer shows me.
If I've misplaced the location,then I have to admit I missed school for geography class and apologize :)
I say a banality,but hope for a true enthusiast is a powerful motivation to get rid of ideas already received or known.
Here's what the computer gives to those in the York area to try and even receive G-Sat 7/18 at 74.0E. For that,I keep my fingers crossed :)
