can anyone lock it?  i cant but dont have a PLL ku lnb.
https://blockstream.com/satellite/satellite/
https://github.com/Blockstream/satellite

says its linear, but fails to mention which polarization.
looks like qpsk modulation.
also got a good laugh from this .."However, a C band antenna will not work as it is designed for frequencies lower than Ku band."

looks like a new customer base for ya Rick!..better stock up.

The first link says it's on Galaxy 18 12178.43 Horizontal.
The BLSA shows nothing at 12178 Horizontal or Vertical at this time on Galaxy 18.

At 12176 V 4171 1/2 QSPK2 inverted ACM/VCM short  don,t know if this is it fills the page with data won,t scan in. This is with a tbs 6903 and see numbers slightly off from the normal 6925 scans.

edit: 15.5 db thats very strong for this satalite here.

yeah they mention a 45cm dish is enough, so i would expect it to be very strong.

Their footprint maps show that I am outside the Galaxy 18 footprint, but I am within the Eutelsat 113 footprint.

I don't see anything on the BLSA at 12026.15 V on 113 W.

signal is only 200khz wide..so there is little chance we will see it.
also the satellite engineer said is not standard DVB so none of our tuners are capable of locking it.

Checked european frequency at Telstar 11N - pretty much nothing at 180 cm dish. There are a lot of data feeds at this satellite position, but nothing which would look like very strong signal ready for 45 cm dish.

You a RTL-SDR dongle on the loop out of your receiver.and either hdsdr or srd# to run the dongle to tune to the right IF and then run the decoder. Photo is from 103west

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
