I'm looking for ASTRA3
My Location

Hello.
I would like to watch TV from Astra 3A. The problem is I bought satellite dish 90 cm. I live in Oxford. I've got universal LNB 0.3 dB. But I haven't got any signal from this satellite. Please could anybody help me? Is the satellite dish 120 cm enought. Is posible from Oxford get any signal from this Satellite? Or how big must be my satellite dish, if I want good signal?
Many thanks topinka15:-worship

Hi topinka,
I also have a 90cm dish and can pick up channels from this satellite although with not a very strong signal.
I get from 45% to 55% signal quality but the picture seems to hold up alright.

If you already have a 90cm try it, if not good enough just replace it with a larger dish.
Also what channels are you after from this sat ?

If you are after Czech Link, then you will need a 1.2m from Oxford, there is a sticky thread at the top of the Fringe reception section.
