Hi Mario ...


Looking at the footprint maps for most Astra 19 beams at lyngsat ...
..shows a very rapid falloff in ERP towards Egypt ..
I don't know for sure but I would suspect you would need a dish well in excess of 2 mtrs

The same would be true of the 'super beams' of Atlantic Bird 3 ...as these also fall well short of Egypt... (KU band)
The AB3 Wide Beams do fall over Egypt ....but Lyngsat shows very little by way of channels being broadcast on the Wide Beam

You would have more success on AB3 in C band ...I suspect
