Just looking at the footprint Sgar http://www.hispasat.com/esp/satelites/coberturas1c.htm Looks like you may get it reasonably with an 80cm, but not being very good at geography I'm not sure how high up Malmo is.

For me in the southern England area it is good with a 63cm zone 2 minidish.

I'm sure that we have someone with a steerable dish close to you, who can give you better information though.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply m8.
Looking at the footprint it does indeed look promising, considering that Malmo is right at the bottom of Sweden.
Hopefully somebody else a little near me can caonfirm it for me though.

Cheers again

There are certainly a couple of members who have posted in the Astra 2D thread in the Sky digital forum who live fairly close, have a look, may be worth PMing one of them.
