Hi!
Now that Astra 2E/2F are so apart from each other, how can you calculate affected loss of signal from ideal pointing, when using 5M dish ? I mean if dish has 0.35 degree beam width, what would be signal loss when pointing error would be for example 0.1 degrees? What is the calculation formula for this loss?
