I think Steve Skillington was having me on when he told me the Nordic beam could be got in claremorris on a 1.8m @ 8db

he told me he could get it too and even in heavy rain, so i would say he could, i am not too far from him, if he can get nordic anyone can as he is situated very far west near castlebar.

i have both a invacom quad c120 lnb and inverto quad c120 lnb on my 2.4m fortec, i think invacom c120 works a small bit better for my dish, if chris gets nordic for you make sure you tighten nuts and bolts it get be hard to get signal again.

It doesnt work like that - in extreme fringe reception conditions signal strength can vary wildly over just a few miles.

for this satellite beam it does alright, a few miles can make a big difference.

Very odd - I would have thought you'd get SOMETHING from the Nordic beam? Did you get anything on the FSS beam (i.e. the one higher powered than the Nordic one but lower than European in > 12600MHz range)?

We have seen the same effect with Astra 2D over the years as well.
