Difficult to pinpoint each & every one,but in general,i have around 60 installations of 4.2m Prime focus dishes in the area marked with red rectangle...
These 4.2's have no problem 24/7 with Astra 2D (BBC/ITV) or Channel 4...

Hi Iceman.
I am a newbie on this group but already like what it offers.
I have two holiday homes in Kapparis Famagusta and I have just bought in to my next doors 4.2 prime focus dish. The system works OK but we both lose Chanell 4 around 5pm along with Sky three. then in the mornings we cant pick up and BBC chanells until around 10am. I asked my partner who installed his dish and he said a name that I remember from last year (Will not mention as unfair) but just to say he fitted a 80cm dish (fixed at 13 E) in my other apartment last year and it was a poor install. So I am wondering if this dish is actually correctly aligned on 2D or just got a signal and run away? Reading some of your postings and looking at your map it clearly quotes perfect reception 24/7. Could you confirm this please. I am not sure what the LNB gain is but its a quad output. The dish owner is desparate to find someone who is knowledgable of the systems they are installing and can ensure the dish is fully aligned to get the maximun reception possibe.
Your reply and assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
