Hi all friends of mine have bought a villa in the Spanish southern coast not sure exactly where but they're looking me to install a dish for the uk channels if they bring there second box over. Just so i get it correct first time what size of dish would i need for flawless SNR readings as i don't wanna be doing the job twice...the recommendation is 1.5m but if anybody has personal experience it would be gratefully appreciated.

First of, you need to get a more accurate location. Then you could go on a reception report hunt on the net, and also people in near that location may be able to give advice.

EDIT: Beaten to it.

Remember that whatever reception reports you can find today will be useless in 2 years time when the old satellites start coming out of service and are replaced by new birds with different transmission characteristics....!!
