Working on a Ch Master polar mount using a 1.2 and looking for any active tp`s on Telstar 12-15w and SES 4-22w.

Also any lo band signals from 15-58 would be helpful.Using an invacom quattro here.

Thanks in advance.

Hello HN -

Congrats on the polar mount, I would love to see your review.

T12 @ 15W is easy - 10983H / 45000 for a low-band signal, and 11795H / 45000 (plus three more, look at Lyngsat) in the "standard" NA Ku FSS range.

for SES-4, keep an eye on the "CNN transatlantic news feed" topic in the "News and Weather Feeds" forum.

Also, last time I checked there was a feed on Eutelsat 12 West B @ 12.5°WL, some sort of Brazilian lawyers' network, that is visible here in NA, that isn't listed on Lyngsat. Must be on a hemi beam.

Also, Ku low-band signals on Intelsat 14 at 45.0°W, China Radio International and RASD TV, both listed on Lyngsat.
Pretty cool footprint for Ku on IS-14; it covers the east coast of NA, Europe, and most of Africa to about the equator.

What a weekend....Finally have the dish tracking very well.Literally spent more time with this dish than any other I have ever installed..Big oak is blocking me from starting the install tuning to true south approx Simon Bolivar..Many limbs will be cut soon.

This dish I have named boomerang.The name came from where the mount was made right here in NC not far away and where I bought from a very cool member that lives in Latvia (RimaNTSS )..I searched and searched all stateside and who would have ever thought this mount would have come from Latvia?Then come right back to NC.

I have always enjoyed every post that RimaNTSS makes.Very creative fella and always thinking about a new project!!..Any post he makes is a must read!!!..

Without many folks none of this would ever be possible...Here is some pics of boomerang.

BTW I still have many 1.0 and a 1.2 Andrews waiting for a good home..Free to anyone for a pick up..Also a Birdview solid is still waiting for a nest.

Jeff! Thanks. Please do not make me coloured up [tongue]
That is nice and clean installation you've got there. I just wonder how you can assure masts for antennas are plumb.

Small off-topic anecdote about boomerang:
Indian chief got new boomerang as a present, but  that was impossible to get rid from the old one [smile]

Very nice installation!
Are you able to hit down to
Eutelsat 12 West B @ 12.5°WL?

OK, that's funny, but now I am confused - are you saying that there is a source for these mounts in NC, or do I have to order from Europe?

Polar mount? I am looking for a big steerable dish for Ku-only.

Thanks, and congratulations!

I think it was meant that those mounts were made in NC long time ago, but most of them shipped over the pond where small dishes (1-1.2m) more popular at that time. I do not think it make sense now to look for new mounts in USA and also in Europe. They are out of production and originally boxed rare as chicken teeth. This one I still have in the garage in original box, which I wish to store like this for nostalgia reasons. IMG_20170905_215134 (Large).jpg 
Actually, mounts I gad could be called not only "boomerang" but also "traveler" as they made in USA, shipped to Belgium fo long time storage, afterwards I bought them and shipped to Latvia. After some time, I've sent several to USA, Canada, UK and Belgium. [smile]

Yes Ch Master is still in NC.Smithfield to be exact.It has been several years since these mounts were in production.I have hunted high and low and called Ch Master in Smithfield and spoke with a lady by the name of Betty or Betsy.Been awhile so going on memory of her name.Asked her if she look around and see if there is any stock laying around and nothing was ever found.

RimanTSS is spot on as many of these headed for Europe.

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!
