yes it is ,


i have just put up a 1.6 mtr in hartlepool, north east. i have got all the verticals in but only around 50 odd % signal which i have to say i am a bit disappionted with, i will soon be changing my lnb in hope the signal quality can get a bit better, i will be buying a 0.3 sharp lnb. If you put up a similar size dish from where you are you will get a lot better signal being in london. regards john

Always nice to see when a thread has legs. :)

I tried with a jonsa 1.6m in Berkshire, but couldn't separate Nilesat from its neighbours, I'm sure though, that it wasn't put together very well.

I do not think you will get better equipment than you have but are you making the most of what you have. Has it been fine tuned??

the make is fortec star, i did not realize my post was in here, i must have put it in the wrong section. I think what rd said is what i will do, otherwise i am using just an ordinary lnb and possibly not getting the best from the dish, but apart from all that how it stands at the moment 53 to 55% at night time, at 2pm daytime, about 42% on the mbc and one channel, othewise some of the other frequencies are about 50% during the day. I think the mbc are one of the more weaker frequencies. Anything below 40% picture breaks up. the fine tuning what was mentioned, it is believe me, done properley, i spend up to 1 hour with a portable tele out in the garden watching the signal and i can peak the signal up to 1%. I will try and put some photos on the net later on.
