FTA= Free to Air, which means you do not require a subscription

7E is the Eutelsat satellite at 7 degrees east

5W is the Atlantic bird 3 satellite at 5 degrees west.

Patching is relatively easy, you just need the appropriate cable to connect to your computer and get the patch from alsat.co.uk. There is always a risk though, that you could break the box.

A motor would of course mean that you could watch more channels.

Look at www.lyngsat.com for channels available on different satellites.
