A freind of mine is going to the Algarve on holiday and wants to be able to watch Sky's FTA programmes, from his mobile home. What size dish would he need? He is mainly interested in the 5 terrestrial channels, more than that would be a bonus!
Any info gratefully received.

sorry guys, a 1.3 simply not good enought as you are likely to loose channels in the evening after 6.30pm this is due to satellite drift and the weaker signal, a 1.4 prime focus dish with a 0.3 invacom LNB will solve all your problem
good luck

I wonder if a 1.4m dish is that much better than a 1.3m
