It is a tough satellite to find, as you can get fooled by the NBC K-Band signals on GE-1 which will give you a signal level, but will not lock. If you see that you need to go more to the right (from behind the dish looking up). I used a spectrum analyzer from work to set mine up as I got frustrated looking for the signal. Turned out I was looking at GE-1 and that was why I saw signal level but I couldn't get a lock with the receiver. Hope this helps.
11.7 to 12.2 GHz. This is not the DBS band used by Echostar etc. (12.2 to 12.7 GHz) but is the frequency band used by TVRO/cable/network satellites for their Ku-Band downlinks. That is why you might be looking at the NBC network feed signals from GE1.
