Moved this to an appropriate section.

A 60cm should be OK for the Loire Valley, you will need to point it at 146 degrees, elevation of about 30 degrees, so the dish will be about 5 degrees off vertical.

You will need to fine tune the dish by very gently moving it as you watch the digibox signal display. a little sat-beeper type meter would help.
