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

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.
