How to Track NigcomSat 1R @42.5E TV Stations Easily

The quickest method to get NigcomSat 1R is 42.5E degree east channels on your decoder, is to first track any DSTV channel at 36.0E. After getting the DSTV channel, simply bring down the dish a little to get 42.5E NigcomSat. Pretty much straight to the point.

To accomplish this ensure:

  • The satellite dish have been well plumbed.
  • Ensure the KU-band LNB is well fixed
  • Next, track DSTV using 12245H/27500.
  • Ensure you nail the highest signal on the DSTV’s 12245H/27500 frequency.
  • Then insert the NigcomSat 1R frequency 12518H/29500 or any other into your satellite decoder or receiver.
  • Bring down the dish bit after bit; you may also add it with an additional left shift by 1 cm simultaneously.
  • Continue until you hit the green affirmative.
  • Tighten up the dish!.

NB: TV stations on NigcomSat are still running on Test Phase!, you may or may not experience difficulty in getting the stations when there is signal fluctuations. But, fluctuations aren’t much of a big deal in tracking the channels, since they come back to normal in no time. Besides, the signal strength has improved with time. Which means better reliable transmission and reception as the clock ticks by.

      Nigcomsat is a Nigerian owned Satellite. So it’s 100% free and working fine. Though the signal in some period may be off air then back again. As of the time of writing this post….its working flawlessly: You can track Nigcomsat 46e with this two basic frequencies: 12518 29500V/H , 12540H/V 5000

  28. Boateng says:

  29. Farouk says:

    Should be from the Alpha Box Decoder

  30. Sharjeel Ahmed says:

  31. Sanusi says:

    Is there anybody who has track NigComSat with 6ocm dish in Osogbo Osun State
    Because I only have 60cm dish. before I will engage myself in tracking it

  32. mulindanguluka mulewa says:

    How do you track it on qsat decoder? The base freq 12518H 29500, does it apply to lusaka zambia as well? For DSTV do you see the dish channel as confirmation or what will tell for DSTV? How do you tell one inch shift to the left

    • FK says:

      To track Nigcomsat is straight to the point but a little tricky. First, on your Qsat Decoder enter settings menu….under satelite where you can be able to edit or add a new frequency and symbol rate. Input this DSTV frequency: 12245 symbol rate: 27500 while polarization is either H or V depending on the orientation of your LNB. Now after hitting Green or any colour that shows you have gotten DSTV via the frequency on your QSAT…Now, add the Nigcomsat frequency too from the settings. Looking at the Quality and percentage level on your QSAT decoder, bring down the dish little by little and to the left until you hit Nigcomsat
