3A is crap in this part of the UK, I am going to put up a 1.5 to try and get it properly, very intermittent on my 1.1. Many posts on this subject already.

In Berkshire a 1m dish will pick them up for a few hours a day, someone is trying a 1.25m Gilbertini at the moment, will be interesting to see whether it affords 24 hour coverage.
