    Just to assure you that it works. In Migori and have been able to watch channels in NSS-12 and IS-20 perfectly.

    Satellite transmission will work anywhere. It's the most appropriate means for those remote, hard-to-reach areas. Si kuna watu wana dstv/azam/zuku huko shags?

    Get a 6' pf dish, Supermax 777 Plus C-band LNB & Freesat V7 Combo decoder.

    @Giggz, is it possible to nab this particular bird?

    Astra at 19.2° east?

    advice on the least dish size, and if V7 combo will be able to work around on the encryption.

    thanks in advance.

    Ev
    Even before i upload the beam/footprint its not receivable here. Its a satellite for European market. You would need a very very big bad ugly dish, what in FTA we call a VVBUD or simply BUD. most European satellites have little or no spillages.

    @Giggz @Luther12 sorry am gate crushing this, i acquired FTA equipment and had a local installer do the initial setup.
    I think a 120 cm dish pointed east, c-band lnb, V7 decoder, am in Nakuru. He left me with 2 satellites:paksat 1 and Intelsat 4.
    Am wondering with the setup which other satellites can i nub and their locations?

    Try Apstar-7 @76.5°E, Intelsat 20 @68.5°E, and NSS-12 @57°E. Measat 3/3A @91.5°E will require a bigger dish. All C-band.

    Thanks, ill try to get the degrees correctly.So i don't need any other setting?I have noticed a number besides LNB Freq 5150 on both satellites.Should i put same on the above?

    You'll need a DiSEqC switch to integrate all these sats at which point you'll apportion the appropriate ports kwa decoder. The 5150 remains as is.

    I suspect you have either Apstar 7 76E, Intelsat 20 68.5E or Nss12 57E. Unless you post some of the channels you are receiving we can't be sure of the way forward.
