60 cm - Astra 19,2 fix dish. Installing a 1,8 m prime focus to Astra-Eutelstat 28.2

Granada, Spain
Hi. I had build a 1.8 prime focus dish form spares. I use an old thompson sky-box which get signal from 28.2. I can watch sky news and a lot of channel from this satellites, but (and it is a big one) I can´t get BBC and the others.

Is it possible from here?.
My LNB is a "china" one... 0,1 db.

Thanks

Thanks, anyway.... Web player for the BBCs

Our installers who were doing some research were seeing serious signal dropoff over 5km when 2E went into service :D

Because on the fringes the footprint contours are not nice and regular, as they are in the target area, but instead can have narrow side lobes and correspondingly sharp nulls.

This makes prediction nigh on impossible and instead we rely upon empirical evidence.

Nah - Ive read most of the thousands of posts on 2E reception on this forum - and quite a few of the tens of thousands on other forums :)
