Hi all,
Does anyone know what is a minimum dish size for 30W Hispasat.
I live in london.
Also how do you measure performance of a dish? and will 0.6 lnb make a big difference compering to 0.3 lnb when viewing channels on Amos satellite with 1M dish?

Thank you

You should be OK on Hispasat with a 60cm, although a 70 or 80cm would be more weather proof. With regard to the difference in LNBs, some 0.6 LNBs perform pretty much as well as supposed 0.3db LNBs. If there is an improvement, it will normally only be in signal to noise ratio, but that as you know can be the difference between good and moderate reception.
