Hi,

Pop up too Dumfries in scotland.. have a zone two dish there and get everything..
Also will be popping to paris a few times this year and posibly rome.

Now i know rome is out of the question..

My question is.. What is the smallest dish i can have for Hispa and astra 28 .. too work in Paris and Dumfries.. ??i was lookin at one of this lidl caravan things simply because i can load into hand lugage on the plane (think it follows plane guidelines..)

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

In theory, if you were in France you could use a 43cm minidish for Hispasat, but as for Astra 28.2e, might struggle to get 2D in Paris with a 43cm minidish, a 60cm minidish should do it though and you'd get a very good signal from Hispa with it too.... :D

I would think a Zone 2 60cm x 75 cm would be fine in Paris for Hispasat and Astra 2.

A standard minidish is fine for both of those sats in Paris, have two Sky installations around the Paris areas and both have standard minidishes, also have a couple of Hispasat installations in Southern UK, both with minidishes You have to make sure that the LNB is capable of Westerly skew though. :)
