    Sband, can you confirm this one ?

    It's either behind or close to trees. I might just be able to see it with the 1.2m but the X band kit is not winterised (nor am I). I'll try some time. Does anyone else have X band operational?

    1.2m Prodelin 1224 az-el with one of:
    S: Helical feed, 0.8dB NF LNA, X: 1.2dB NF LNA, conical feed,
    Ku wide band: corrugated conical feed, 1.5dB NF LNA, Ku (Standard): Octagon OSLO mod for C120 & ext ref Prodelin feed.

    Ka: Gilat ex-ODU PLLs Gilat feeds, Ka 18-26.5GHz: Patriot feed, home made 4dB NF LNA, Ka DSN: Corrugated conical feed, home made 3dB NF Down-Converter

    1.5m IRTE, Polar mount with Octagon OSLO mod. C120, IRTE feed
    40km East of London, UK

  • Thanks S-Band for the feedback.


    Sato (Peon/Onaclia) is also X band equiped, but rarely online on this board (unfortunately).

    Is this one a possibility? http://www.n2yo.com/?s=26575 aka DSCS-3 12 on hvdh list. It might have been close to the geo arc at the time of your post

  • I´ve tried to find this position - not sure about...


    Probably WGS-9 now? Only spectrum on linear feed and 1,2m.

  • It's still not clear if Feedsat received DSCS-3 12 (inclined 6.3°) or WGS-8 (non inclined) back in 2018.
    If you read this Feedsat, do you remember if the satellite was inclined?


    Meanwhile, DSCS-3 12 moved to 134.3°E, and WGS-8 moved to 149.8°E.


    Indeed qwer, we have WGS-9 (non inclined) at 56.8°E now.
    Does your spectrum have peaks coming from that direction, or are these just "background" peaks?
    Since 56.8°E is so close to 60.2°E (WGS-2), WGS-9 might be an in-orbit spare at the moment.
