I have no line of sight myself but I think 60E may be a possibility?
According to satbeams a 1.0m dish is indicated as OK.

You might get lucky with 54.9E on a good day, there were a couple of strong frequencies on the Northern beam last time I checked.
I was way above the level required for a lock with a 2.0m dish so a 1.2m might just about be OK?

Actually, I forgot, 68.5E is OK for a 1.2m dish in the UK but it is low in the sky and not easy to get line of sight.

If you enter any currently active frequencies from the Northern beam of 54.9E it might get you a hit.
It is only 1.9 degrees further East than 53E so should be about 22 clicks on the v-box if you get 11 to 12 clicks per degree.

I get this transponder on 53E 12594 V 27500 on a 88cm dish,
Restricted view so this is as far as my arc goes East.

12522V 27500 on 54.9E is strong enough to receive on a 90CM here in the north east, I seem to remember the Northern beam being a little stronger in the south of the country too.

Thanks mate. Can u give me TP details ple

11555 V 30000 3/4

All of them are Iranian channels.

I've managed to get this one but I'm unable to get anything past 15w so must be receiving this one by pure luck.

yes, can't get the antenna to get the arc properly. if I want to keep the most eastern days, I lose 15w and the most western ones.

are you using polar mount \ actuator ? is your pole dead straight.

i recently swapped and moved my dish, swapped my old 2inch pole for a 3 inch pole and have ditched USALS \ Diseq motor - to an H-H 36v motor, i paid special attention to pole when installing my CM - making sure it was dead level, the result, my arc has never been so good, around 16-17db on 30w and 45e - even on old setup with USALS, i never got that...even 53e at 14db atm.

that DB reading is from an Octagon SF8008 - i actually think they "under read" the value - as when i briefly had a TM5402 M3 - the readings were usually 1db higher on the TM, than the Octagon. Not sure which STB is to be believed, lower or higher reading.
