I am in Mauritius using a 120 cm offset to receive PAS 10. Since i'm in fringe area I want to upgrade to 180 cm offset. I need information and probable price for this. Even searching thru internet is not easy to find 180 cm unit. I found Only channel master but very expensive for me. Any help.

So how much are you prepared to pay for a 180cm dish?

patmoss as you are on Mauritius you will either have to find a local supplier and pay whatever cost they determine, or ship one in (at probably vast expense)

In that case a mesh dish would be much much cheaper to transport, why not get a good 2.4m KTI or 3.1m KTI?

I beleive they can be sent by UPS if i am not mistaken.

Problem with a solid dish that size and your location is that the shipping cost will proabaly be higher than the dish itself costs.

I only want to know manufacturers/sellers so that I can have an idea of what is the market price of such a dish. When buying here i would know if i've got a fair deal. Just want to have an idea. Presently this is not available here. One seller told me he would have it in a month time but He cannot give me the price now. To give you an idea I bought a 120cm EUROSTAR( same as FORTEC) for 24 pounds. I estimate that this is a good deal for in other places it is around 45 pounds. I need an idea of price from cheapest to more expensive. I believe the Andrew/ channel master would fall in that category.

This may be expensive. I'll contact him. any idea of its price in Europe?
Is there any cheaper alternative. The big problem with cheaper dishes are their poor mount. But for this I can build one that will be close to prodelin or Andrew.

Around $600 in Europe for 1.8m Andrew.

Thank for your nice mount. I can't get you when you tell 1.8m precision dish. Is that the make or just the way it was made. I need pics or docs for these dishes.

I am also from Mauritius and looking for a cheap satellite dish package which includes the Receiver. I have seen some people are using the Arabsat with Fortec equipments. I would like to know if you have found any solutions ? What about the Arab sat .. you know any resellers in Mauritius ? Also, i heard it was about rs3000 - $100 - it's a one time fee since those channels are free. So, where did you get your dish from ? I would like to buy one too .. And sorry for so many questions.. I would also like to know which channels you are receiving with your 1.2m dish and where did you buy the receiver ? or are you using the set top box for receving TNT channels ?

I did not get the 1m80 dish. I was talking about offset dish. You'll need a 1m80 prime focus dish and there are some dealers here who have a whole package for it as you told here.
My dish and equipment came from these dealers. Now I'm using a 1m50 for PAS 7/10.
Check lyngsat for channels received - lyngsat.com/intel68.html .
Yes I'm receiving DTT (TNT) with my new box Strong srt 4910 because it's a combo box( sat+dtt). The normal box will do Satellite only.

You mean the 1m80 m offset? Which brand? The 2m40 C-band is cheaper then.

Hey patmos, man i'm impressed with your setup on our miserable footprint island ;). Man, I desperately need your advice .. Having a go at a 2m40 petal prime focus on Pas 7/10 Ku. Got C band working fine for a while but been expirmenting a lot of stuffs .. I got a KU/C Combo Lnb and have been fighting to get to work with Ku band but no success. I'm I getting anything wrong or i was thinking of getting a 1m20 offset to catch KU only. I've got a clear sky from pailles . Hope to hear from ya .

I've abandonned the idea of C/KU . This cheap C/KU we have here is not worth.PAS 10 signal is weak here. when you adjust the skew for KU you'll disturb the skew for C.
I tried a c/KU with separate H and V LNBs with little success. I just doubt the feed is of poor quality. It is an imitation of the ADL feed. If I get hold of an ADL/Patriot c/ku feedhorn I'll go for it. I've seen it in use here with good result for C/KU.Then I'll spare one dish. Please post pics as suggested by Analoguesat.

Man, when can i get hold of that here ?!! .. The poblem is not to use C / KU combined at the same time. but i can't even get hold of KU band when connected in solitary. My dish fell down on the last cyclone oops .. so I have some irregularity which I'm afraid might cause.

Do you think KU signal is less that C on pas 10 ? Any idea how I can increase that KU signal on my 2m40.


that patriot really great !! I'll try get hold of that next if KU ever works on the 2m40.

For info my updated config (as i cannot update it on my profiel :))
Flashed Astrovox VSR-2600 receiver. dansat conventioanl receiver. 80cm offset on Eutelsat. 2m40 on pas 7/10 , 1m80 prime focus on Arabsat 5a.

Yes sir, signal is less on KU , we're out of footprint. Go for 1m20 offset dish 1m50 if you can.Is ASTROVOX dvb-s2?
