I'm able to get to 60e but unfortunately the only 2 channels available in the UK (2 romanian channels) have left.

Blind search 45W on the TD5402 M3 - should find China Radio but make sure you then set the SR to 1000 even though it might then show as being a little lower (mine shows 999).

What's the dish size needed for 45w? I wouldn't mind putting a dish up just for that sat.

Lately was on my 1.2 Gibby, but I previously got it on the TD110.

Primary motorised arc = 33E - 15W
Secondary arc (various fixed dishes) = 54.9E - 30W

Does this qualify me as the very first Nano Arc Man? :lol:

The other way of looking at it is that you are unique, one of a kind.

So currently, I can see from 55E to 63W, could quite possibly see a little further west, but nothing past there on a European beam to test it on!

With regret, after some tree trimming I have received 42E - 30W on my primary arc today and have to relinquish my Nano Arc Man status :(

ABS-3A and Amos are too weak, but I do get a few 5°W transponders. So if that also counts, it ends at 05.0W
