Has anyone successfully locked any signals on the C-band side of this new bird, specifically anything on the global beam?

If yes, then what size dish, and what make/model of feedhorn?

(It is using circular polarity.)

The only info I could find on the global beam is that the typical e.i.r.p. ranges from 33.5 to 37.1 dB/K,
which implies that you need a rather large dish and you can't afford to give away 3dB by using a dielectric plate in a linear feedhorn.

AFN mux at 4127L/3680 and the MTN one at 4134R/30000 have good signals here.  Same old 10' SAMI with one slightly damaged panel and ADL RP3-CPOR1 feed as discussed in the 8w thread.  I'm about halfway between Raleigh and the VA border.

4127 L 3679 has 3 feeds for afn. 2 of them scrambled. There is a mux on vertical posted at lyngsat that some get but its powervu scrambled as well. Complete mux. I can not get that one.
Dish is 10 feet. Not sure on lnb but its a cband lnbf. 5.8 deg above horizon for me. Furthest east sat i get.

Thanks guys!

One of these days I will get one of those awesome ADL circular feeds and mount it on one of the 10' dishes I have,
and set it to track the eastern arc for the AOR satellites.

Interesting that there is a vertical mux - I would guess that would be on a spotbeam?

The spotbeams have much higher power than the global beam (no surprise) 43.0 to 51.7 dB/K (51.7 is really strong for C-band)
but I guess you are too far out of the spotbeam footprint in NM.

BTW, here is where I got the info (pdf file):


UPDATE: Just checked again, and both transponders listed on Lyngsat are listed as circular: one Left and one Right; is that incorrect?

That's right. Vertical is right.only left/right on this sat. Same with 40.5 and 47.5. 37.5 is regular. I only get two transpondrs at 37.5

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!
