It looks like your friend is too far East for reliable reception from UK Spot beam @ 28.2 east even with a very large dish
I thought @RimaNTSS got the spotbeam in the Baltic states with an 4.x Andrew?
Or am I wrong?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Never say never

However the Freesat beams are under constant tweaking, both signal levels and direction, so there is no guarantee anything that works for a while will continue to do so without interruption.

Buy the biggest dish available.
