hi i am currently preparing for a 2 months stay in the middle east and i would like to know the dish size that will enable me to watch astra 28.2e there. can anyone tell me or guide me to footprints maps thanks for all
TCM - no problem major black???? - don't know what this is. Dish is 2.8m - but don't be put off - cost of dish & lnb was only about 120GBP The member in Cairo is called Robbiewright - PM him - very helpful
Sorry Zorba I'm not at the house until Sunday so I can't check the name, but its a solid prime focus - and its a 2.4m dish - not 2.8! couldn't remember the other day - dish, I'm sure its locally made.
One of the reasons for its apparent cheapness is the devaluation of the Egyptian currency - everything is virtually half the price (in UK terms) as it was a year / 18 months ago - EXCEPT BEER - but even thats a lot cheaper.
The lnb is an "Astra 0.5dB" - i have no info on it - just that I got a better quality signal (pick up Ch4) from this lnb than the 0.3 invacom I brought here from the UK (picture break up on Ch4)
