August 2007

Q.1 : How can I know the all the Satellite I can receive in Egypt and how can I know their transponders? (Nasir Jamal, Egypt)

Ans: Go to, then check any satellite you want. You will find the coverage map for each transponder. If your city is included then you can receive that transponder.

Q.2 : In Slovakia I need a 2.5-meter antenna in order to receive BBC 1,2,3,4... via ASTRA at 28.2° east. Couldn’t I link four antennas (such as Gibertini 1.5m) together to get a stronger signal? ( Imtiaz Ahmad, Slovakia)

Q.3 : I am 17 years old and still in school. I have a few questions: you are the resident expert when it comes to satellite communications. I am curious though how did you gain so much knowledge on this subject? Where should I go so that I could learn the most about satellite communications and transmission technology? Since I intend to make this a career choice, your answer would be very interesting to me. I hope you can find some time to answer my questions. (Waqas Khan, Karachi)

Ans: It actually starts as a hobby. Here you can learn about satellite communications just by playing around. When searching for signals that normally should not be receivable in your region, you would automatically start reading specialized literature on the subject that would explain the calculation of a downlink budget. This would take you a step further. Most likely a 17-year-old would not have the means or the room to erect a three-meter antenna with all the necessary electronic accessories. But that doesn’t really matter. You can also experiment with a small antenna. Another step would be volunteering at a teleport. But expect to be working 12-hour days. In return though you can also expect a sense of achievement every day since there isn’t anyplace you could learn satellite communication business and studio technology faster.

Q.4 : Is it in anyway possible to receive AMOS-1 in northern Norway at 69° north? Is the only solution a 5-meter antenna? I am interested in TV from the Ukraine. (John Smith, Ukraine)

Ans: Since this is an out-of-footprint question, it will be answered here. There is someone who can receive AMOS-1 on the Arctic Circle using a professional 4.xx meter antenna. For you the situation doesn’t look any different and I fear that it will have to be a five-meter antenna. To avoid the extremely high costs that would be involved, it might perhaps be better if you acquired a more standard dish and pointed it to ASTRA and EXPRESS. Ukrainian TV channels can be found there also.

Q.5 : : What kind of LNB do I need to be able to get the radio stations on ASIASTAR beneath the C-band in Saudi Arabia? (Mohammad Sattar, Saudi Arabia)

Ans: In Saudi Arabia the west beam of ASIASTAR can be received. You don’t need an LNB; instead you need a Worldstar radio. These radios come with a flip up antenna and if the unit has a clear view of the satellite, then reception is guaranteed. Better reception can be obtained with an external Yagi antenna. The Worldstar package is available via the Internet at

Q.6 : I like to receive channels from Iran, Turkey, Arab countries. What kind of digital receiver and what size antenna do I need to receive these channels in USA. Also what sat do I need to point the dish and what is the azimuth and elevation and offset angel and name of programme. (Ken Livingstone, USA)

Ans: To find a channel distributed to your region just go to: Here you find the world-wide transponder-charts. The function DishTrak allows you to calculate elevation and azimuth
