    Yes, that's right.

    For the recent launches, Analoguesat has expended a lot of effort into collating reports (successful or otherwise) from around Europe and beyond.

    Sadly, it seems no such Maps exist for the older 28E craft.

    I have several GI-209P and happy about their performance. Unfortunately there are only Single available. If you get one of those, can happen it works better then that you have. It costs starting from 4 EUR.

    I use an Invacom QDF-301 quad LNB on a 1.8m dish for Astra 2 and it works well for me. Apparently the single and twin output versions of the LNB do not perform as well but I haven't tested them myself. The problem is it is quiet an expensive LNB and you need a feed horn to go with it (my dish came with its own fitted matching feed horn so this was ideal for me).

    No, the 1.8m is in Helsinki, Finland. But I do not get any UK beam channels and some of Astra 2F Europe beam channels are very weak most of the time. I get good reception of Astra 2A, Astra 2E Europe beam and Eutelsat 28A.

    In the UK a 45cm dish is big enough for everything!
