Im looking to get something on 26e with a zone 2. Is it this possible to get even a flicker or am i being daft. Im talking about the strong channels like one tv. I have tried with no luck but where the dish is i get a low 28.2e signal (45-60 quality) so that could be the problem. I do get some 23.5e by the way.

I would doubt that you could receive anything, particularly as the beam width on the zone 2 is quite wide and as you say, will still receive from Astra 28.2, even though 2 degrees away.

You are wasting your time with anything less than an 80 cm dish. You might get some of the strongest frequencies on a nice day, but it wont work if its raining. You certainly wont get the MBC channels on anything less than a good 1m dish.
