I'm looking to set up a FTV system at a house near Murcia airport on Spain's Costa Calida(south Costa Blanca).

I've been told that in southern Spain one can't get ITV1 on 103.....you can only get stuff on vertical polaristaion....and it has to be accessed thru add channels etc...my question is this:

Channel Islands ITV is on V polarisation....and BBC 1 Channel Islands looks like it will go onto V polarisation too.....

So....if one could activate an FTV card in Jersey or Guernsey...then take that card to Spain....101 and 103 would get BBC1 and ITV1 automatically...is my theory right or am I being naive?!!

well the card is based on the postcode of the house that has the card sent to it, so if you get a card where you know the bbc/itv regions will be vertical then yes that will work ok.

That would appear to be the only fly in the ointment Andyb, AFAIK they are no longer issuing FTV cards (unless the CI are a special case) and even if you get hold of one that has been issued to a Channel Island address, you will probably no longer be able to activate it.

So you would need to find one that is no longer needed, but has been activated.

I have a system in the Costa del Sol and I get STV on ch103. STV is on the same frequency as Chan Islands. I do not believe that your first premise that you cannot get BBC! 0n 101 and ITV on 103 in southern Spain is correct

Hi,

We are in Southern Spain(70k East of Malaga) and receive all BBC channels,ITV,C4,C5 with no problem using a 1.2 metre dish both on the older type viewing card and the new dark blue card. The banner warning about loss of channels hasn't been seen for 2 weeks,and on the dark blue card it was never seen a all.

The only problem we have noticed is that C4 tends to break up a little between 20-2200 most evenings,

I've just picked up a Sky eliptical digi mesh dish that is 70cm across with a Grundig lnb on it. Is there any chance of picking up Sky in Southern Spain (south of Granada) with this??

We live on the coast 70K East of Malaga and use a 1.3 metre dish which is the very minimum for this area,friends have tried a 1.2 metre and they cannot receive C4/5,even with a 1.3 dish we lose it occasionally during low cloud or stormy weather
