The elevation for GALS is at your place 5.77°. Signalstrength of this
satellite is very unreliable. So I would advice a dish not smaller then of
160cm primefocus or 145cm offset. But there is still no guarantee to get a
steady and good signal because the Russians are still testing on this
satellite. Today we got on 150cm a noise free picture (51.6°N/5.9Ê) on this
120cm offeset for 40°E is fine, but on 11°W you will need an two axis motor,
because tis satellite is in inclined orbit. Why not try the EXPRESS on 14°W?
