Over Joy:
I believe that I may be within range of this Satellite ( Atlantic
Bird 1 at 12.5ºW ). I'm located at 26.7 N / 80.1 W. How can I be sure?
If I can receive this Satellite, I may buy the wife a new diamond this
year (Meaning what I spend on her - I spend on myself too). Barry

C-band EUMETCast (MSG-1 data) is carried by Atlantic Bird-3 at 5 deg. W.
In the (eastern) States you will need around a 2.4 - 3.8 m dish.

There is a calculator on the EUMETSAT website for visibility of their
satellites - go to


where you will find Atlantic Bird-3.

I hope this is of use.
