Just wanted to share this reception report, received in Ljubljana/SI with a 3.4m Prodelin antenna. I guess it cannot get any better than this. Here and there another one or two transponders get locable but ... this is pretty much it from this bird.

And how about Eutelsat 7WA on 7.3E, the beams are totally different.

Sure, those are two different satellites, 0.3° apart.
7WA gets here with 1 meter antenna, NWA beam with 2.4m upwards.

Nice. But your location is some 2400 km away from me. :)

I am missing some frequencies (Nilesat 201 7.0ºW) in which I have no signal. With a larger antenna it would possibly have a signal on all frequencies of Nilesat 201. :)

So the Nilesat 201 7.0ºW signal should not reach the north of Spain according to the coverage maps.

Extreme fringe reception is an odd thing - unexpected reception can happen. I used to get just one frequency off Eutelsat 25A in southern Scotland with decent signal strengths - no way I should have been able to get it.

You are getting the DVB-S transponders - the DVB-S2 stuff is missing. You would need much more signal to get them. Most other satellite providers have started moving over to DVB-S2 as it makes better use of the spectrum available, so if/when Nilesat start switching you will start losing frequencies.

The exact opposite happens in Northern Greece. 201 is fairly easy with 1.20 (all frequencies come from 8 to 11db) but 7WA MENA is extremely hard, with some frequencies not possible even with 2.40!

Yep, that's why extreme fringe reception is such an "entertainment". Sometimes even 50 km distance means a huge difference.

This morning I went pretty well with this satellite
I was able to get some difficult transponders ( for my place of reception north Bayern and 1,20 Antenne ); also with pictures.
