Depends on the transponder(s) you're after there. Both 10E and 16E can be a bit of a struggle at times especially in wet weather.

Go for it is the answer, but remember to set the centre LNB on the dish to the weaker transponder/satellite that you need,

Also, if you haven't bought the monoblock yet, consider using two separate LNBs instead --- though that would then require a diseqc switch.

Hi Moosegoose,
Take a look here:
http://www.satcodx1.com/0100/eng/
As you can see,the Eutelsat W1 at 10,0 East doesn't carry ANY Romanian TV prog.However,there used to be some "Romanian stuff" on this satellite but AFAIK,they're moved a long time ago.
Actually,the best way to get Romanian FTA's is to have a motorised system instead of a fixed dish w. monoblock/dual LNB combination.This way,you might be able sweeping between Amos and Intelsat 902.
HTH!

Hi Parky,
This is what I was talking about...the link you posted contains some outdated Romanian FTA transponders (I have myself several similar links but I gave up watching them for obvious reasons...they update too slowO-zzz).
For instance,as I already said,the W1 @ 10 East @ 11131 V doesn't have anything Romanian.The "Antena" package moved on W2 @13 East.
Anyway....if you want correct info,watch for lyngsat or either satco.
Regards,

Just to avoid further confusion W2 which does have the Antena Package is actually at 16 East
