Without knowing the exact received downlink powers in Tanzania that question is impossible to answer. The only answer we can give you is "possibly".

We dont have many members in the Tanzania area, and I doubt many of those few have big dishes om 7W

the beam,of atlantic bird 4,is very high foucused!

here,in austria it is very strong,with 90 cm like astra,in east germany up to 700 km away,you need 2,40 m dish for atlantic bird 4,also christan lyngmark,needs this dish size (belgium region i think he lives!

i only heard reports,from people lives in nigeria,that is posible to reveive astra,with 4 Meter dish,i can not check this,myself only reports from the net !

what satelites,you can get,with your antenna in tanzania?

At Bird 4 has 2 beams. One widebeam focussed on the Meditterranean, which I would say is unlikely in Tanzania.The spot beam covers north eastern Africa quite nicely, and may just about be possible in Tanzania with a big enough dish.

Hold on my friend, which channels are you wanting - lets see if they are on the Africa beam first.

DONT say "all of them" - because you dont have a hope of getting all of them without a silly sized dish - you are just too far out of the coverage areas.
