I've said it before your antenna is for a Dx-er, but beyond your priorities and ongoing projects, I'm convinced that most of those who have followed step-by-step how you installed it is curious to see what satellites and transponders are outside your reception area.

It's as if, forgive the comparison, :) you're technically showing us how to prepare a rare, exotic meal, but we have no idea how it "tastes."
I'm wrong; yes, you did manage to pick up the signal from the UK spot, which is hard to do as you're so far outside the spot. I still wish you "bon appétit" if this menu pleases you.

But we, or at least I, sit on the sidelines and see what wonders you achieve with your dish, seem frustrated. So it's not the lists that interest me; it's the "exotics" you can get from great distances.

Exaggerating a bit, I would say that we are left without the expected end once you have installed the antenna as speculators in your endeavor. The show is half over for me/us, and we, the viewers, end it as we would like it to be, i.e., in "fiction." :)

Of course, everything I wrote before must be taken cum grano salis, but I remember you installed a motor to move the antenna. I might not have written the above if I hadn't known that.

Chapeau bas :)
