Hi Everybody

What is the recommended dish size for the Thor satellite at .8 degrees. This would be a fixed dish, not motorised.

With Thanks

Clive

Welcome to the Forum.

The answer depends upon what exactly you want to watch >> There are several Beams, each with different Footprints.

Some are a relatively easy catch in UK and some are not.

So if you have a specific set of Channels that are a "must have", then please tell us and we'll do our best to give you a practical answer.

Have been asked by a friend whose wife is Rumanian. So I guess it will be Thor 6

To cover Nordic & Pan, I 'd say a decent 1.2m would do it.
