Dear Forum members and Satellite Experts!

Looking to receive Swedish Satellite , specifically SIRIUS 3 (VIASAT on 5.oE) and perhaps more importantly THOR 2 (CANAL DIGITAL 0.8W) from my London home

My location is London, UK (51.425N , 0.157W)

1. Is reception at all possible?
2. If so, what size dish is required for a decent signal strength
3. Advice on LNB and other equipment I should buy and any recommended sellers?

Thanks all!
Sammy

Many thanks RolfW,

So a solid 1.2m dish it is with a Twin Universal LNB spaced 6deg apart. Mainly looking for SVT1, SVT2, TV3 and TV3 and Nordic Eurosport. Although most of these are free in sweden via analouge and digital terrestrial trasmission, it appears they are encrypted on Satellite (which sucks)

Given i will need to de-code these signals, what receiver is best? Humax or Samsung or other?

Cheers
Samir
