yes, I have the motor 	STRONG SRT DM 2100
 (not actuator)  and the the dish with diameter 1,1 meter

1,1 meter is not big size. And I can watch several satellites in C band with it - the sat positions - 40e,
80e, 90e, 95e

The secret is in good LNB, specially and manually adopted for C-band and my dish (from Russian engineer
Alyno) http://forum2.alyno.ru/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=713#713

ok, understand than.
But in my case no need any big and special motors
