Espoo - Greater Helsinki area (NO ASTRA 2D) Amstrad DRX100 1.5m offset dish LNB Nokia 0.7 dB Posted 29-05-03 Astra 2A, 2B and Eurobird 1: Signal OK with all transponders. BR, Kari
Helsinki - East (NO ASTRA 2D) Panasonic TU-DSB30 1.8m dish LNB 0.6dB MTI Posted 27-07-03 I get nothing at all from 2D and some break up and loss of some (but not all) southern 2A/2B transponders on a 1.8m dish in Helsinki with a Panasonic TU-DSB30, a 0.6dB MTI LNB and about 10m of cable. The dish is located in east Helsinki. I recently replaced the receiver, we previously had a Pace BSKYB2200 and I can confirm the Panasonic TU-DSB30 is much better for the weaker southern transponders. We're looking at getting a bigger dish in the future, but for now the 1.8m will have to do. 10m of cable used. Timoa
