What satellites can you receive signals from at the max of the arc?

Can you lock and receive signals from 105.0E and 43.0W?
Or are you only able to lock as far West as 40.5W?

At the moment i have signal from 105E until 40.5 W . The dish moves a little bit western than 40.5W but without locking the 43W
After a couple of months i will have a H-H new dish setup ( 3.2m) and then for sure i will have signal from 43W

I have updated the table to list your arc as 105.0E to 40.5W.
Once you confirm that you have your new setup in place I will update the table for the increased range of your arc.

Updated table attached below.

I am pretty sure I can track satellites further west than 45W but that is the last one at that end I have a transponder lock so I am unable to verify (KU band only).

In London I had from 42E to 45W.

Getting a new dish installed next week in my new home further north. Hoping to have a better line of sight to the east to boost my arc.
