This might help some people that are interested in the reception of Sky in Greece, especially speaking of the difficult Astra 2D:

Full 2A+B Northern beam reception in southeastern parts of Greece like Rhodos and Crete can be gotten with a well aligned 2.40m, in worst case 3m. There the Eurobird 1 NW-beam is very weak so i cannot say if a 3.70m is enough or not.

In Athens you can get full 2A+B with only 1.20m offset, the Eurobird 1 NW-beam needs 1.50m Offset at least.

Here some reports i had the last years about Astra 2D:

Kavos (Kerkyra/Corfu): H partly with 2.40m-3m Channel Master PFA
Kastoria: H partly with 2.40m DH PFA
Kozani: H partly with 2.40*2.70m Offset Supral
Larisa: H partly with 3m Channel Master
Athina (Athens): H partly with 3.70m, full with 5m
Laganas (Zakynthos): H partly with 3m, full H with 4.80m, full H+V with 5-5.5m
Rodos: V starting on 2.40m, H partly on 5m
Kriti (Crete): 5-6m for some BBCs, no further info so far
Hortiatis mountain Thessaloniki: 6.40m full reception of 2D

No guarantee for the data since i've been collecting them from greek sat-fora.

If any new information appears i will post it. If anyone knows more please be so free to do the same.

Hello, not yet. I also asked the one that installed it but he has not much time and running all over Greece to install dishes. You can be sure that if he answers me i'll post it.

The one that installed the 6.4m unfortunately told me that he is not allowed to tell anybody about the project. Maybe they are building up a distribution network like these here: http://www.mds.fr/index.html

Another report we have from Veria (60km west of Thessaloniki):

Channel Master 2.40 PFA, Invacom Quad 0.3, Sky+ Thomson 160GB (very sensitive in his point of view, much better than the Panasonic 50 he had before):

With this equipment he has uninterruptable reception 24/7 on all H frequencies of 2D.
Now he is looking for a Jonsa 4.2m to get also the V.

If anybody knows a dealer in the surrounding (not Cyprus) he would appreciate it a lot.
