I'm currently in the eastern arctic, and have our new Raven 65 X 75cm dish, and am having a hard time locating Anik F2.  What settings should be used on the spectrum analyser, to detect this ka band?

Can't answer for sure without your lat/long. But if you're above 60N and east of 111W, there is no viable line of sight to Anik-F2

I'm @ 68.46 North, and 81.14 west.  Some say the signal should be fine, some say no.  Maybe with the BirdDog sat finder, it may be easier to locate.

Anik-F2 is at 111W. Your Azimuth will be ~211.8 (true) or ~250.1 (magnetic). Elevation is ~10.2, skew is ~11.2

L-band frequency range associated with Ka-receive is identical to Ku-band; 950 to 1450 MHz, but polarization is circular.
