Several years ago I saw a map of F1 and F2 and was surprised that they had a beam aimed towards Hawaii - especially given that they are for Canadian Service. Of course, I am not exactly sure where I saw the map now.

Does anyone know if SD actually works in Hawaii - especially with the 75cm dish?

Older Canadian satellites, including SD satellites, are generic North American models that cover all of the US and Canada. Newer satellites have a contour to serve Canada. Some older satellites may be tilted north to serve Canada better. While existing SD satellites may serve Hawaii, there is no guarantee that future satellites will. I know that Bell TV satellites don't.

Anik F1 at 107.3°W

Anik F2 at 111.1°W

According to those maps, the signal in Hawaii is quite weak so a large dish is required.
