    Theoratically it seems possible with 6 ft dish,I recommend 8 ft solid dish,however,ku reception is always mysterious;sometimes it spills over to those area not covered at all like hotbird being received in India,many other times it has no reception in the area supposedly covered.
    I advice not to take the maps for granted.

    In SUNSTB you cannot receive any other TPS as in that STB entering TP is not allowed

    Bro sshaik,The signal of ku appears to be concentrated to India.Pl check whether you are able to receive ku signals from the satellite with the help of FTA receiver,replace c band LNB with ku LNB and check.If you are able to receive11570 V27500 DD channels,then ku is receivable in your location,otherwise no hope.
