Could someone please confirm that TP 3925 H 1101 S2-16APSK which I seem to have found is actually on NSS-9 at 177W?  I think my visible arc is going to turn out to be 55W to 177W if that transponder is actually on 177W.  Thanks.

177 west is circular polarity. Right and left.

I would have to put in my LNB block plate to tell you and its raining right now. So are you running a circler block plate in your lnb or what?

I think the proper question is he pointing his dish at 177W?

Here I have to get 14 chickens up and dressed and fed before I have time to look in the direction of 177W. Plus those 17 squares of shingles in the driveway need to get up on the roof  before it rains here.

dunno where you live dick, but in Seattle, WA that sat would be like 14.5 degrees above the horizon.
And less than 1 degree above in Bismark, ND. So anyone east of there would be aiming thru the ground.

Yes, in Elma Washington actually and I should have asked the question as boblop posed it.  I don't have a dish at the moment with a circular LNB(F), but I have a 5' prime focus I may try that with.  Just wanted to know if I was seeing 177W over the hill and thru a break in the neighbor's trees.  Thanks.

Several years ago I temporarily moved my high performance circular feed to my 3.2m dish (horizon-to-horizon views from about 30W to 180E in Denver, longitude 105W) and switched its jack to the other side. At 177W (about 5 degrees above the horizon) it locked just about everything in Lyngsat. On 180E (about 3 degrees above the horizon), I saw sniffs on a blindscan, but not much would lock. Because there wasn't anything of note worth retaining this configuration, I have not repeated the experiment. It's a lot of work for little reward.

There's not much on 177W receivable in North America, so you might get away with a linear feed. However you're going to lose at least 3 dB of sensitivity - more if there's something at the same frequency on the other polarization. At best a 10' dish would perform like a 7'. I'm not sure a 5' dish with a circular feed is going to be enough to see more than blips on a spectrum analyzer, or perhaps a blindscan that doesn't require signals to lock. With an appropriate setup and view, 177W should be cake in WA.

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!
