Hi guys, how do you reckon a 45cam dish would hold up with analogue?

I've just been playing about with one in the garden on 19.2e..a some sparklies and a few channels not working at all...but apart from that ok. How would it hold up in the rain do you reckon?

And do you think 45cm is enough for Hotbird (digital). I got BBC World on Hotbird analogue ok with it (aside from some sparklies).

Failed to find 5W...but then again..I've never found that :p

Why don't you make the occasional trip down the tip, you can normally find a dish or two down there in good nick, it is rumoured that one of our team spends most of his spare time down there. :) :-lmao
