This does not make sense:

I assume that you mean that you can get a good signal with 1.2m and not with 1.8m.

Make sure that the 1.8m antenna is correctly assembled and that the same LNB type is in use and same polarisation angle set. The LNB cable connection should be checked. Use the same LNB and cable if possible and just carry across from one antenna to the other.

Pointing with the 1.8m antenna needs more accuracy than the 1.2m as the beamwidth is narrower.

Best regards, Eric.
