The elevation for GALS is at your place 5.77. Signalstrength of this 
satellite is very unreliable. So I would advice a dish not smaller then of 
160cm primefocus or 145cm offset. But there is still no guarantee to get a 
steady and good signal because the Russians are still testing on this 
satellite. Today we got on 150cm a noise free picture (51.6N/5.9Ê) on this 
satellite (NTW).
120cm offeset for 40E is fine, but on 11W you will need an two axis motor, 
because tis satellite is in inclined orbit. Why not try the EXPRESS on 14W?
