Hi there, I'm after a decent dish to pull in feeds off 16e, 33e and some channels off 42e.

My setup at the mo is an 80cm solid dish (not sure on manufacturer) TM 1000D, Qualitv HD Box, Moteck SG2100 motor.

I'm based in the midlands and feeds off 16 east on my setup are weak but on bright clear days they are viewable. Anything other and I can't pull them in even though the TM says the signal quality is around 60% this is too low for the TM.

33e, Fox Turk is rather weak also on my setup and it disappears during drizzle never mind heavy rain.

42e seems a bit week, Fox Turk coming in at 66% the bare minimum for the TM to display a picture on a clear day.

Most other satellites come in strong.

I'm thinking of going for a decent quality 90cm dish. What do you guys recommend? I have been looking at the Triax 88cm dish. Any reviews on this dish?

Thanks.

you'd be better off buying a triax or gibertini 1metre dish as upgrade to 90cm isn't really going to be worth it

What's the lnb arm (length wise) like on a 1M Gibertini? I have the dish mounted on a pole set in concrete but as the dish moves around to the east the wall gets very close to my 80cm.
