I believe that you ned a 1.2m or bigger for reception of that satellite, possibly 1.8 for all transponders.

I'm in north kent and on my 85 I can only get a few of the transponders, I think off the top of my head that it is everything on Arabsat 3A with a high symbol rate 20000+ but the low symbol rates ones arent there and they all seem to be relatively marginal, so i think a bigger dish would be required depending on what you wanted to pick up.

Yep I receive Arabsat in Essex near London with an oval dish (About 1.1 metres) so a metre to 1.8 should be OK

My Satellite Setup
a variety of lnb's (5), dishes (2), diseqc motors (3) and receivers (4).
My Location
East of Cambridge (GB).
85cm here, usually ok for Arabsat but breaks up in rain, the 98cm Funke was slightly better, just waiting to put up a 1.25m, this should improve Arabsat and Nilesat. for me. Plenty of english dialog films on both those satellites.

If you are going to put up a larger dish than 90cm make sure that you have nice neighbors or that you have planning permission.
