Horizons 1 - 127Horizons 1 is a Japanese-owned satellite used by Hughes and is located at 127 degrees West Longitude.
The footprint map for Horizons 1 is shown below. All footprint maps have to be considered as approximate. .74 meter dishes need at least a 46 dBW signal for reception. Horizons 1 has proven usable in Alaska with a .74 meter (although a very low look-angle, so easily obstructed). It does have some problems through British Columbia on the way to Alaska. In the 48 states, its weakest areas are in the extreme southwest.
