Well apparently they are good, got one in the garage at the moment, awaiting installation in a couple of weeks time for Turksat, Astra 28.2 and Hotbird for a 9 apartment IRS project.

SMC construction, the same as Channel Masters, should be nice and robust

I put loads of the 70cm ones up in Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea a few years ago for 28e and 13e. They perform quite well.

Tried emailing them but got a mailer daemon error.

Have never had to mail but I've had lots of gear from them and they are very good to deal with.....you may find carriage from France a bit prohibitive...

You can get them from the London satellite shop in Bromley although being a UK based shop your going to get ripped off compared to buying from europe.

TV Corner sell these dishes for 190 Euro. Had viewing cards from them before and have had no issues.

Checked on 2Galli and carriage on that dish within France is €6.87....so roughly €170 or £130 in total.

HM Sat in Germany stock them as well. €169 + €22 carriage to UK....

I'd check with the firm Rolfw has suggested.....

Yes, about £156 at todays exchange rates.....only thing I can add is that HM Sat are very reliable, I've bought receivers and switches etc from them for over five years now and they've not let me down.

What about this... used but seems OK, already has 4 LNBs on. Also possible to bargain price down.

Expensive project though. The 23mm lnb holders are €15 each and the thin 23mm lnbs are about £20 each on ebay. I would probably need 5 to 7 of them depending on whether I want to add 7e to it or not.

Just wondering if 23.5, 19.2, 16, 13, 10/9, 7 and 4.8 should all be 23mm thin LNBs or if 23.5 would be good for 40mm.

Yes, I would probably buy from there unless there is cheaper elsewhere. Now just need some money.

Hmm, red or grey?

This LNB claims 3 degree satellite is possible. According to the manufactures website it is 3 but seller on ebay says 2.
