This site has a membership list populated by enthusiasts from many countries so it's quite possible that a lot of them won't know anything about Kidsgrove. I suggest you carry out a search of the internet for suppliers in your area or look in Yellow Pages. Of course these days with internet trading being so readily available you don't actually need a supplier close to home unless you are looking for an installation service. One company always willing to offer help can be found on the following link.

There are many of the larger agents within your area that will be able to help.

They Include Precision ( manufacture) J H Hardy, ( shop and reseller) Small World ( shop)

You can also take a look here

http://www.smallworld.uk.com
http://www.jwhardy.co.uk/pages/pl_ant_sat.html


There are incidently not so many that manufacture 1.6 mtr dishes a majority are now 1.5 mtr and 1.8 mtr.

Please also note that if your mount is a normal IRTE mount for a 1.2 then this will also along with the support stand also need to be replaced with much larger.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The Gibertini dishes are very well made, but I am not sure whether the 1.5m comes with a polarmount as standard. The 1.2m unit did have some trouble traversing the whole arc unless changes were made to the motor brackets.

For £250 you should get the dish, motor and mount, and if you are really lucky, delivery to your door. Dont ask them to post it

If you are trade, your nearest supplier is the EUROSAT warehouse in Walsall.

If you are not trade then your nearest satellite shop is probably Evett TV in Congleton. On the roundabout at the end of Mountbatten Way.
(01260) 298333
Ask for Terry (he's the owner - I happen to know him and he's technically competent - if you speak to his mother she won't know what you are talking about!) He should be able to order you one from Eurosat (if they stock them).

Don't expect it to be cheap. Once you go larger than 1.2m you are looking at hundreds of pounds.
