hi, is it possible to capture the echostar 3 at 61.5 in vancouver, canada? if yes, what are the settings for the 9000 hd?
i have been trying to get the signal but no luck, i am using a 24 inches dish which was working properly for echostar 10/11 at 110.
thank you.

The footprint of 61.5W shows that Vancouver is covered. You might try a 30-33" dish

You could ...go here,http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish61.html , look for TP with conus beam and use that TP in antenna settings when aiming the dish

The HD TP's are 8psk, sr 21500, fec 2/3

ok, i have got the signal from 61.5
i made a channel scan, i got 33 channels but none of them is working!
all are scrambled channels, aren't those channels supposed to work with the weather forecaster?

I think the WF and most IKS only give you 110/119/118

Sorry! I don't have the latest channel list!

Which channels you are looking for?

You can use this dish to get some free to air channels!

You could.. . check the 118 sat , it might have the channels you want-,
if so , get new lnb ("Circular" 118°/119° 10750) for the 36" dish and aim at that sat.

Robert: Re. Arabic channels. Just to avoid cconfusion.
With a DN subscription, and IF the arabic package is on 65W, you should be able to get it with a larger dish because of the weaker signal in the West coast. You WILL also need a Dish receiver with current subscription paid for those channels.
If you are looking for Arabic channels via IKS on a FTA receiver, this is only available from 118W (ANIK F3). For that you need the 33" dish, a special 118/119 LNB with LNB freq. of 10750 0r 10600..
Also note that as if now, the IKS support for 118 is down. There is upport only at 119 and possible for 110W.

"on Echostar 14 at 119W"
Look at this Lyngsat URL. although it says 119 it is really a combo URL for 118.7 (Anik F3) and 119 (Echo 14). If you look at the listing under Frequncy you will find 11715 R tp 1 to 12155 L tp 30. These are all Anik F3 TPs and the Arabiv channels are in that section. The real 119 (Echo 14) listing starts at 12224 R tp 1, and only has American channels.
Look also at the parent URL lyngsat/packages/america.html and you will se that Anik F3 and Echo 14 are listed together at 119.
IKS does support Arabic channels of 118, but at present they are down and have been down for a couple of weeks.
