eBay is your best best but that's what good large dishes cost.

Dont even think about buying a very cheap dish - do the job properly and get a good quality dish that isnt going to warp every time the wind gets up.

If you want decent quality then you have to pay for it.

Low volume speciality products cost a lot.

You may be waiting a while - not many turn up on Ebay.

2.4m may be a bit small for Birmingham as well :eek:

We know its 2.4m in London, and the dropoff is very steep northwards

You want good but you also want cheap and you want a 3m dish. How much are you actually willing to pay?

As far as I can see our original poster can do two of these three.



Cheap -- Big -- Quality



DKDAM - also remember the cost of setting a big dish up - a few tons of concrete for the base, the cost of digging the hole, the associated hardware, and the cost of the installer - because a big dish isnt the sort of thing you are going to put up successfully yourself.

You are looking at several hundred pounds just for this.

Yup you need to talk to your local planning office. Before you spend any money, and see what their views on massive satellite dishes are.
