2011-03-17 12:30:04deepbluesky (49N-9.3E,0cm) ? @vpetruzziello Unfortunately not. 1.80m is sufficient down to Firenze. Further South you will need much much bigger dishes. 3.80m was ok in Roma. In Napoli a 4m dish had been tested but with negative result as you can read here: http://www.satellites.co.uk/forums/sky-digital-bskyb-uk-platform-astra-28-2e-astra-2d-fringe-reception-tech/117014-astra-28-2-ftv-naples-italy.html#post731502

2011-03-17 08:01:02vpetruzziello (40.4N-14.3E,140cm) No astra 2D at all with a 140 cm dish. Could it be worth switching to a 180 cm dish ?

2011-02-20 13:45:04VVMJ (35.6N-6.4W,80cm) ? I want to know if a .80m diameter dish is large enough for receiving Astra 2d in Chiclana (Cádiz - Spain) I want to know if a .80m diameter dish is large enough for receiving Astra 2d

2010-07-13 18:11:31DragonSat (40N-13.7E,100cm) Occasional lock on verticals in evening

2009-09-10 23:32:20felixis (40.6N-20.3E,95cm) ? no reception with 90 cm dish in Ohrid, Macedonia

2009-08-10 23:12:31deepbluesky (49N-9.3E,0cm) ? For Astra 2D in Vienna you will need something very big. Reception starts on 2.40m but to have reliable bad weather margin 3.50m unfortunately is not exaggerated. 2D will be alive max. 3 years from now, after that nobody knows if it will become worse. For the rest a 60cm dish is sufficient.

2009-08-10 14:47:56flea13 (47.9N-15.7E,80cm) I'm in Vienna, Austria and need to receive ASTRA 2D + Eurobird1 28,5°E. How big should be my dish? Thanks for help!!

2009-08-06 00:27:59stefanblge (63.9N-16.5E,70cm) Various Signal on 10714 , no vertical on lowband Various from 60-80% reception strengh and 60-95% q. using 70cm dish , might need bigger? no idea.

2009-08-03 12:13:43deepbluesky (49N-9.3E,0cm) ? Interesting athensat. I've never heard before that there is so much difference in between Athens and Southern Attica area. But this is the typical out of footprint behaviour. Some km further and the situation can be better/worse. jimmyg, i agree with athensat. A Gibertini OP150 should also do the job, even for the weaker upper Eurobird 1 Fixed Beam frequencies. Fortec Star dishes as many people say do not perform well in the Ku-Band. It would have made sense to go to a high quality 1.80m for higher bad weather margin but 2.40m is definitely the overkill for Athens unless you're planning to distribute the signal to decades of receivers.

2009-08-01 17:10:08athensat (-,180cm) ? jimmyg you should try with Gibertini 155cm,you dont need bigger dish for Astra 2A andB

2009-08-01 15:07:03jimmyg (37.4N-22.7E,120cm) i'm in athens greece with 120cm dish depending on the receiver you have get half of 2a/2b early morning and late at night the rest but sometimes those channels break up and also missing a few, 2d can't receive nothing, now i upgraded to a thomson 8215 hd receiver, it's a less sensitive tuner than the pace 2600/ds430n so i am forced to get a bigger dish, cheapest is 240cm prime focus/fortec dish which I should be ok, as for 2d channels some are broadcasted on eurobird/astra2a/2b in other channels menu and on another tuner (fec 29500 rate which can't be changed on a sky digibox).

2009-07-31 15:35:41athensat (-,180cm) ? deepbluesky i believe that 450cm solid dish propably gives 40% or 50% for Astra 2D until the center of Athens.If you go more south in Attica then you need even bigger dish.Maybe for all Attica region you need 480cm even 500cm and i mean Cape Sounio,the signal as you went south east dropped radicly.

2009-07-30 23:27:56deepbluesky (49N-9.3E,0cm) ? athensat, certainly but since 11 of the 16 transponders carry this content it's hard to guess if they get them all or just some of them. As i had been told some years before 5m were the supposed size for proper 2D reception in Athens but i wonder if there is some big difference in between the particular frequencies and hourly fluctuation of C/N. Over Greece as you surely know, the situation is rather chaotic. Whereas in the Northwest the Horizontals are present even on 2.40m+, in the Southeast it's the Verticals and in between somebody from Lamia posted years before that on his 3.8m Patriot dish he did not get full 2D but frequencies from both polarities losing them for some hours. So i guess Athens could also be in this in between area and even 4.5m might be enough for weak but stable minima. Never had seen a list of C/N values so thought you might know more. Anyway, never mind. 3 years are left max and then we'll see what will change.

2009-07-28 20:01:28athensat (-,180cm) ? deepbluesky Definitely the UK embassy is intrested in receiving BBC channels and ITV and Channel4

2009-07-28 18:53:29deepbluesky (49N-9.3E,0cm) ? athensat, is there a chance to find out which transponders the British Embassy receives stable on 24/7 basis with 4.50m ?

2009-07-28 14:21:52athensat (-,180cm) ? deepbluesky for Astra 2D in Attica region you need minimum 450cm solid dish.This is what is used in the roof of the british embassy in Athens nearby the War Museum

Snow and heavy rain does not knock the signals except when snow sticks to the dish more than 1cm thick. Freesat working fine, only the Freesat EPG that is not available to me which is no problem. Streams also work fine and were detected automatically in a channel scan. Coban16@hotmail.com

2005-10-06 14:27:58mbortola (-,0cm) ? Live near Realmont in the Tarn. Montagne Noire between Albi and Castres. Bought a 69 Euro Satellite Kit from BricoDepot that included an 80 cm dish and a Boston 4500 decoder. Needed to program in the details for the Astra 2D satellite, but now get all channels clearly at all times.(including ITV 3) A very satisfied self-installed customer. I know nothing about satellites, but pointed at Astra 1, then moved East a little, lowered the elevation of the dish with an offset LNB and we got 'yellow' bars on the decoder signal strength bars. Very happy so far with the decoder box since, as opposed to the Sky boxes, the signal strength meter responds immediately. Also get Eurobird and Astra 2A channels at the same time. A happy bunny now as can watch Anglo-welsh rugby and Little Britain. :-)
