No, we sorted all this as the least bad compromise last year for 2F!

Italy, for this purpose, is definitely Central and East.

West covers perhaps Germany, Spain. Benelux, Portugal, France etc.

in hungary no problems with any of the pan-european beams, but this has never been an issue: 2a, eutelsat, 1n pe, 2f pe and now 2e pe - you can have problem-free reception with a 80cm dish - so these changes in the last couple of days hasn't effected us really.

tomorrow morning it gets interesting, when 2e uk goes live. for 2f uk we need a 4 meter dish, so we'll see how different 2e uk will be.
