Hello all,

I live 25kms north east of Valencia and want to setup a Sky FreeSat connection to get BBC and 2 via Astra 2D north Beam sat.

Has anyone living in the area managed to get good coverage?

The general consensus seems to be a 2m dish. Trouble is that's massive. Bit of an eyesaw on my roof.

Anyone tried a smaller dish and had success?

Thanks,

Rob

Minimum in that area for BBC seems to be 1.8m. Why don't you put it in a garden? Safer and less of an eyesore.

Buy a big mesh dish like 3 or 3.7m and put it in the garden.
