A bloody big dish if you want all of them - motorised as well.:D

You can forget Eurobird 2, Nilesat, PAS-10, Badr-2 and Arabsat 2B in the UK with any sensible hobby sized dish.

You should get the first channel off 8W with a reasonable sized dish, Channel B will need an 80-100cm dish

The first two channels, I guess Peace TV (26East) and Huda (8 West) should be OK with a 1 m motorised dish, depending on where you are in the UK. Not sure about the third one as you won't get 30.5 East without a big dish and as there are no channels that I can see that are common with the transponder most closely resembling the one you mention at 26E (not BADR-2).

It makes life easier if you give the names of the channels as well as the frequencies, as channels can be moved at short notice.

Thanks for the replies so far

Channel A is http://www.huda.tv/defaultN.aspx?rt=4

Channel B is Peace Tv

Channel C is Al Majd tv http://www.arabsat.com/default/viewers/default/tvchannels/ChannelsDetails.aspx?FrequencyBandID=1&Technology=1&Category=7

I'm in Birmingham. I don't mind having a large dish but what I want to know is which way would the dish face to get the above compared to my sky digi dish so I can see if I have anywhere suitable to mount/place it?

Thanks for the help so far

Well 26 East is right next door to where your sky dish is facing, but 8 West is 36 degrees around to the West.

the third channel does not appear to be listed anywhere apart from that site, this is what the other sites show.

A Majd isn't really a priority. Huda & Peace are the channels I really wanted.

rolfw the reason I asked about positioning is because due to the large trees in front of my house which block the signal my sky digi dish had to be mounted at the rear of my house on a tall pole so the dish looks over the roof of my house into the sky. I hope i'm making sense!

Is it going to be safe having a 1m+ motorised dish mounted on a pole like my sky dish is?
