Hi all, just had a Triax 88 fitted as part of my Digiturk install. I recently obtained the Digiturk Plus box from Cyprus and will be using it in the UK.

So far the box is showing 100% signal, but the footprint for Eutelsat W3A shows 46dB on Europe B beam that Digiturk uses.

Am I to assume I am very lucky and that everything will be ok? I have not lost any signal even in moderate to heavyish rain so far...

Thanks

should be a pretty strong bird in your location, so not unexpected.

I get great signals from most channels on turksat, i used to struggle with the east beam but since i got that triax its been easy.

Turksat is a different bird, the one for Digiturk is at 7E and the indicated EIRP is lower, that's why I asked. Are you getting all of the Turksat channels with the Triax 88?

Yep west beams are really strong , the eat beams drop down to 50% in poor weather. With a motorised system it would surely be grand. My set up is a multi lnb set up so turksat is at the end of the lnb bracket. (pictures somewhere on here)
