    Will you be driving down again from NO at some point?
    I have too many 1.2 meter dishes - you can have my Gib 125 (which is a 1.2 in real life) if you want.
    It's slightly dented on one edge (see thread elsewhere on this site), but it does 28.x quite nicely here.
    And I have no multi-LNB holder to offer. You will need to source one elsewhere.
    Plus it's a long way on the roof rack to France!

    ^^^ very friendly offer, thanks+++. Some time before am driving trough dk again, quite firmly planted here in France ftm, nearly 2 months now :O) Eventually no problem for transport, it would fit inside my van.

    But very welcome to visit if you should go to the Nice\Cannes\Alpes Maritimes region :O)

    Advancements :O)

    Got some pieces of hardware to test out, now possibility to make some roughly better adjustments, 28e improved on the old, deformed 90cm. Getting BBC HD is a great improvement. Daytime got 2E & 2G, + some hints of 2F jumping in and out of lock.

    The 'garden' pic (in post above) gives some hints of the environment, must find openings in forest + mountains.

    Make the mount more stable (will need better support than the single steel band) and find a suitable dish, it all seems promising.
