Has anyone successfully run a monoblock on Astra/Hotbird 19.2e/13e on a 60cm dish?

I know 70cm is normally min recommended...

I know I've got a better chance living on the south coast, but don't want to invest in a monoblock that may not work....

I realise this in one of those 'how long is a peice of string questions' but if anyone has any practical experience they might like to share....

Cheers

Monoblocks are a compromise which means it is designed to work with different antennas but the reality isn't that perfect.

One Monoblock for your dish might work worse than on another 60cm dish.

Best thing if you want maximum gain from your dish is to invest in separate LNBs and multifeedholder.
