You have your satellites mixed up!

Metro is 3926R so is in C-band on 1W, and you would need C-band kit to receive it.

Ghana TV is on NSS 7. There is absolutely no chance at all of getting the west Africa spotbeam in the UK.

You would need a big dish and special c-band lnb. The footprint map doesnt show downlink powers, but you are looking at absolute minimum of a 1.2m dish, and possibly much bigger.

Also a receiver capable of handling C-band. Most cheap domestic kit only handles "normal" Ku band
