It's a west gate and if I remember correctly, I think it's about 150 to 200km away from the North gate. Took me about 3 hrs to find.
I would suggest flying to the centre of the sector map and just head west.
It will take a long time though, I first tried with my mamba, got bored and bought my disco over with it'd triplex scanner to find it.
Still took a while though.

Good luck!

West Gate

You could use Lord Such's Sector Planner -

Right Click on the Sector and bring up Sector Viewer, then use [Ctrl + F2] or was it [Ctrl + 2] can't remember, but that will zoom out and eventually, you will see the gate and then you can press [ins] to see if it's higher in the "Z" plane....

But... It's 180km out due west....

I sent something out with a Triplex to find it - followed a Goner from the Teladi Sector and went straight into that unknown sector, then a UFO was kind enough to lead my ship into the other unknown whilst I did a bit of capturing/trading!
