There are a few members of the forum who live in Cyprus, at least a couple of them have large dishes and I believe have posted details of where they got them in other threads. It is much more difficult to correctly align a big dish and it may be worthwhile paying the amount that you might have to spend on a new and suitable meter, on an experienced installer who will guarantee some level of reception performance.

Hi, I live in Vrysoulles, not so far from Protoras. Assuming you want to pick
up the 2D channels (incl BBC + ITV) you may need a 4.2m dish. For just
2A + 2B channels (North & south beams) a 2.4m prime focus will be adequate.
By seperate private message I will give you contact details of an excellent
supplier/installer I can highly recommend; he is located in Paralimni.
Regards
Geoff
