Guys canal espana is really hard to get here in cyprus with a 4.2 meter dish why is that? Some frequencies are strong about 14,5 on C/N of satlink but others are not even reachable for instance 10818 frequency that includes canal+ accion doesn't load... Invacom lnb with ADF-120. I get around 1300 channels when I perform a scan.i get them all day long.

See spectrum here:

Thanks in advance!

I used to until today.. But right now I don't because last time I went to fine tune the dish further more I lost some signal.. I will be playing with elevation and lnb skew again soon.. Also I may get an inverto flange to try over Invacom lnb in the long run..

Hello guys this is the image of my setup as promised you yesterday... 4.2 meter dish. @solly I receive ZDF HD channel right now is at 9 db at night I loose it but will fix that after fine tuning it a bit more. Also 11646H that you asked me on pm i don't get.. :/ Is inverto single flange better than my invacom? May it increase my reception??

Just putting my critical thinking into work, if i had another dish pointing at the same satellite and a diseq connecting them together would i see an increase in signal strength etc?? :) Just thinking out loud.

No. You would never ever manage to add them perfectly in phase.

Some massive commercial arrays can aggregate signals effectively, but I guarantee the average hobbyists doesn't stand a cat in hell's chance.

Thank you washoris, a lovely dish I would love one, but we have no chance here in the uk with a dish this size in a built up area, I am unsure if you have given the dish angles a good tweak ?, but this would be my first point to get correct before an lnb,

Good luck and I do hope you can get what your looking for :).
