Take a look at these, then tell me the right one please.

I am mounting my dish as high up the side of the house so I can get it to clear some tree tops ?

But there is two very tall trees to the left and right of the satellite position astra 28.2.

When it says that you must have a clear line of sight to the satellite with no obstructions (trees-buildings) what is the beam of the satellite transmitions to the dish? as my dish is 80cm diam, will it be ok to asume that as long as I have a 80cm parrallel position between the trees, that I will be ok with this position for receaving adequate strength reception.

If you have a gap about two times the size of the dish (to allow for tree movement and growth), then that should suffice.
