That's what my dish will see in my intended location when I buy and install my system.

I would like to know if I would be missing out too much on satellites just outside of this range, which would mean relocating my dish.

Also, my intended system is Gibertini OP100L, Invacom QDH-031, Stab HH120 and Dreambox 7020 or 7025. Any comments or bad experiences with this combination?

BTW - my location is London and I'm only really interested in live Premiership football and the odd movie (not always XXX!), and I've already looked on Lyngsat, but don't really know who shows what.

Welcome Rav to the forum, good to see another football fan here!
Go to the link page in this forum, and also go to the football section, all information there.
Use the search function as well.

Regarding your dish, 45 - 45 covers most, there are a few more sats after that but not critical. From my slightly more central e
European location in west Germany with a 1.2 I get locks on 58 west to 57E, but there are hardly any station son these and if they are, they cannot be seen. So really 30 west hipasat to 42 east Turksat is what you want. (unless you need to watch the fish video on 53 east, which is more or less the only thing to watch there ...

One of my best friend's called the fish, as he not only drinks like one (and is starting to resemble one!) he's surname's Gill!

Thanks for the great info guys!

I've been doing a bit more research and after reading the review on SatCritics, will probably go for the Motec SG2100 instead of the Stab, good idea?

Also, I may not go for the Invacom LNB as they only seem to be used by people with 3m dishes on fringe areas! I'll probably go for the Smart Titanium 0.2dB LNB on the basis that quite a few people on this board recommend it and it's dirt cheap.

I'm a bit worried about the whole DiSEqC motor business after reading this _http://www.satellitesuperstore.com/motors.htm (scroll down to "4. Advice on Diseqc Motors"). Are they just scare mongering?

Lots of people here got SG motors with diseqc. At least with the dreambox it works good enough, once in a while you might get a small issue, but usually a reboot is all it needs.

Wrong there TG, as there happen to be some very good Russian channels on that bird.

OK, I stand corrected. I went through the stations and indeed there are a good number of stations. Also some music channels.
