Let us just hope so!

I have done my calculations and from here (Worthing) given the satellite will be at 25.5 east
I reckon that is a bearing of 148.95 and an elevation of 27.24 degrees.
I have a nice gap between houses in that direction! I have all the gear I just need to get a new
satellite dish.

A bit more info here. It looks like the footprint covers Bournemouth. :)

Thanks Brian, you have cheered me up, after my earlier disappointment. :)
