Are you after Formula One?!

It's on 19.2E as well, of course.

30cm oop North is almost certainly too small, but both Birds are strong, so you might get lucky.

Somebody has a satellite dish in Lochwinnoch? I thought it was like the wicker man up there! (Im in Johnstone which is about 4 mile from there), your best shooting for 19E as its much stronger than hotbird up here in sunny central Scotland.

Are you sure the dish is just 30cm? even the smallest camping dish in the suitcase kit I have seen has been 38cm, not much of a difference I know, its just I've never heard of a dish as small as this.

Yes should work buddy, I dont know how much of a rain margin you will get though, you can do much better on a Zone 2 Sky dish up here, I used to use a modded Zone 2 for Hotbird.

You will more than likely need the window open though to get a signal with such a small dish

You cant get a monoblock that does 19E & 28E mate, but you can get both with a mod on a Zone 2 $ky dish, I have done this & it works well, I have photos on here of the setup.
