Hi all
I'll be moving to Hungary in a few months and need to know what setup I need to receive the DSTV (multichoice Africa) signal there.

I have a 1.8m dish with suitable decoder, but could upgrade to a 2.4m before I get there if that is what it takes.

The area I will be moving to is flat so line of sight should be no problem (18 deg on horizon)

Is there anybody else in Hungary/Austria who are able to receive this signal?

thanks

Hello,

Members in Germany and Austria say 68.5E has become weaker. I don't know if this is also the case for Hungary. I recommend taking a look at the following boards.

_http://www.netboard.hu/viewforum.php?forum=47
Hungarian board

_http://forum.dxtv.de/wbb/thread.php?threadid=4915
German board with members also from Austria

_http://www.novisf.com/wbb3/index.php
Croatian board

_http://forum.sibila.si/index.php?sid=392cbc587ffa2de9adcd12b71eaf53df
Slovenian board

_http://www.sat-digest.com/forum/index.php
Russian board with some members from Hungary

An excellent slovakian DXer site with many details

_http://www.rdi-board.com/
A romanian sat board also with members from Hungary. Not few people there from Asia, Africa and probably Europe do receive 68.5E C-Band

Last but not least, the very informative polish board that might also give you some hint.

Would be great to get feedback from you.

Hy,with my 2,40 m mesh dish pointed,on 68,5e i can reveive 141 Channels,not all transponders,here,but the most,for all,i recomended a 3,1 meter mesh dish,but the are all out of stock,in this size,here in europe,only some dealers has some 3,60 m left!
3816 20500 3/4,is the strongest multichioce transponde,all others are weaker 3863 i have signal ,on 3836 ,i got no signal,also on ary worl digital package,there is no signal,with my 2,40 mesh at the moment,the reason is,other channels,using nearly the same freqency,on the other polarisation,like nhk,for example,only the simbolrate is higher !

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Confirmed - With a 3.7m solid dish in London, nothing is available from a standard receiver, however there are blips on the spectrum analyser which suggest a dish of 5m is now required for the vertical polarisation channels.

The beam has most likely been moved East to allow viewers in India and the subcontinent a better reception.

hello!
when you can install solid dishes,then you buy that one,but there are a lot of quality diferents,
when you have strong winds in hungary buy a mesh dish,price is a little bit lower,irte is out of priduction,of the 2,40m segment dish,price very high in germany 700€!
and more, for cband lnb,buy one with 13 kelvin,i import the new gardiner from brasil with 12 celvin!
3.10 m mesh would be the best solution,here,in our gegrpahical area,then you will reveive all transponders!.with 2,40 m,nearly 18 transponders,are missing no signal for example 3836 or the ary digital package,this my results!
