I locked 11596V 30000 & 11635V 30000 the other night on a fixed 90cm pointing at 22W. No signal at the moment.
No I was definitely on 24W, just confirmed by my good friend Roy Carman. We both have the same scan..The satellite is off arc at the moment probably explaining why Ozumo cannot get a signalIMG_20210221_185616.jpgIMG_20210221_184952.jpg

Indeed .. it was his feed reports - that encouraged me to buy my 1.8 Channel Master - some 20 odd years ago :-)

Zgemma and Vu+ zeo4k: lock OK and tune channels, but only "manual scan"

yes we know the zgemma has a sensitive tuner - its just not been implemented as well as other manufacturers have done, hence why blind scan on KU band, is very hit and miss, depending on the satellite being scanned

Yeah,I've been wondering,why I don't find Roy Carman on DX forums?I remember him taking care of the Feedhunters (Yahoo)Group at Topica in 2002,now gone,if memory serves me well. Or when I saw him on Dr.Dish(aka Christian Mass)'s feeds(43.0W,23.5E,etc),arguing with him. Or when helping those interested to use digital receivers,around the beginning of these devices,such as Nokia 9500 ,9600 or New Wave 9000,etc
His contribution has been of great help to many feedhunters.Where's he posting?
I wish him good health.

Yes, the good old days of Feedhunters on Yahoo groups..Roy took over and ran the group until its closure and I was one of the Moderators. The Google groups Feedhunter site is still active again run by Roy. We are in regular contact via email. and he is in good health. ..

Another good receiver at picking up low SR in blind scan is my Icecrypt 6600HD, getting on a bit and no longer madeView attachment 134547
ive managed to get one of these - very impressed with it thus far, more so than the TM-5302
