Hi All, I am new to this website.
This question might be asked before. I have a 80cm dish and a DisEq motor previously installed in the North of England. I would like to install (wall mount) the same system in West France (Central Brittany). Please can someone explain what will be the reference satellite or true south and step by step installation guide. I want to receive Sky UK and a few more satellites. Many thanks and sorry if the same question is asked before

Thanks BlindFaith for providing the link. Which is just a dish pointer and doesn't answer any of my questions. Thanks anyway.

It depends on your location which I don't know. Take the longitude of your new location and check a satellite site like http://www.flysat.com/satlist.php. The closest match will be your true south ref. sat :)

My Satellite Setup
Laminas 1.2M fibre dish with an IBU, on a Clarke Tech USALS motor, covering 57E - 24.5W to an Octagon SX88. Displayed on a 20" Dyon LED TV.

Seperate 80 cm dish on 28E with a Humax Freesat for SWMBO.
Free Sat V8 meter. Sony Bravia 46" LCD, Sony BluRay and Home Cinema.
My Location
Normandy, France
I use 1W as a reference here in Lower Normandy but if you are in Central Brittany 5W may be a better choice. In reality whichever you choose won't make too much difference...

You asked for help on finding referene sat at true south.
Dishpointer will do just that.
I don't understand the "thanks for nothing" attitude?

If you look and read my reply again you will find it very polite. Show it to anyone in the whole world either English is there first language or not. You will also not find "Thanks for nothing" words in my reply. I hope Mods can have a look at this for you.
