Hi Folks

I live for most of the year in a tiny village about 50 km north of Zagreb. I have a 1.2m dish, Skybox and UK card and a selection of LNBs. Unlike you guys, I'm a rank amateur when it comes to setting up the kit. I guess my real question is; have I ANY chance of getting FTA BBC and ITV here and, if so, will my kit be enough or do I need a 2m dish ? I really don't have money to burn so don't want to get the wrong gear. Also, if I need a big dish, does anyone know a source local to Zagreb ? Cheers, André

the 1.2m is unlikely to pull in the signals from Astra 2D, the satellite from which the BBCs and ITVs are transmitted, not convinced that a 2m will either, as haven't seen any reports of reception for that area, apart from someone on the Adriatic with a 2.4m dish.

Have moved this to the Astra 2D fringe reception section.

Not many reports from Croatia on the Astra 2d website:

_http://www.astra2d.com/croatia.htm

which suggests 1.8m isnt good enough for stable reception..

You could ask people knowing the local reception conditions for example in this croat board: _http://www.satelitskiforum.net/wbb2/
Also the slovenian board _http://forum.sibila.si/ could help although more to the north the situation is a little better.

Hi, Andre!

You can also try at this croatian forum:

_http://sat-plus.com/index.php

If you didn't get the answer at the forums mentioned below, you'll get it here.

Good luck with receiving Astra 2D!

PS. I'm happy to see someone else from the region of Hrvatsko Zagorje. :D
