Those are the dish position in my side wall.
I will do it tomorrow as the weather nwill be better over here. ThanksIt looks like at one of the pictures, the dish is in full sun. If that is the case, you can see (a part of) the clarke belt.
Why don't you do the sun test (even when it is past sun outage days), to check?
No need to jump to conclusions about trees, based on guesses, I would say.
I've done more suggestions in this thread, that weren't properly followed, I believe. So alas, I might step out....
As you can see there was some shadow from the tree early in the morning ( summer is more shadow) so after 13.00 no shadow at this moment of year.Your are just a few days after sun outage, for your location. Presently the sun is about 2 degrees below the clarke belt.
So: is your dish still in the sun, with no (or hardly any) shadow at the bottom of the dish, during the day?
If there is no shadow, you're OK. If there is, at various times, shadow, then it indicates that at that time the satellite at the sun longitude is shadowed...

Good morning, I see that in summer the tree is its growing path with a lot of leaves blocking the Easterly side as you can see #138 post.The sun was about 8 degrees lower than the clarkebelt today for your location (Lat and Lon from post #81 or #94).
The trees are about 17 meters away (post #126), so that means the trees' shadow must not have been higher than about 2.35 meter above the bottom of the dish, to still have reception of the clarke belt.
I'm not sure, from your description, that the Clarke belt was fully visible? Or that the easterly part may have been partly blocked?
You were there, you must be the judge of that.
Assuming a clear line of sight, I'd do the checks on the proper setup of the motor angles (#108), and follow up with further checks after that....
Yes , I used the meter and didn't have any signals on the west part. I was looking for the 30W Hispasat as there are some Brazilians channels as some Spanish and also was thinking to get a TDT receiver when the prices goes down.0.8W is not as strong as 13E, 19.2E, or 28.2E, but you should get a lock, if everything is set up correctly, and as it's near your True South, your Longitude reading, then 0.8W is higher, in the sky, so less chance of obstructions, than further East, and West.
Which transponder, are you using, to try to find 0.8W?
Have you tried the satellite finder option?
Have you tried connecting your satellite meter?

I assume that 2.35 m is just right at moment.
I can see that as the tree is loosing leaves ,the signals are getting stronger particularly in 19.2 and 13.0e but no success at any West satellites even though I have no blockage in front.
If you ask me, I'd check and ask you these questions (and more!):
1. Pole exactly vertical, in east/west direction? (Also in north/south direction? That is not really needed, but it is practical!)
2. Motor elevation then set at proper elevation/latitude angle? Measured on elevation scale of the motor, or with inclinometer (=better)?
3. Motor goes to exactly zero, when you give the Goto-Zero/Goto-Reference command?
4. Dish is mounted exactly in line, with the motor, then (while on Zero)?
5. Arm/LNB is mounted exactly in line, with (motor and) dish, then?
6. Dish elevation scale then set at proper value?
