I have been using the Gibertini 100cm combined with 0.2 Inverto Black Ultra this combination has proved very good for weak signals so I will keep this set up as it is for now,

As I can now only get at weak signal from one transponder on Astra1 5B @ 31.5 east on my 100cm set up & nothing on the 90cm set up from 31.5 east,

I was thinking using this satellite as a guide to the weakest signals & upgrading my 88 x 78 cm Raven Mesh dish set up for a 100cm dish :)

These are the current contenders:-

1/Gibertini 100cm = Gain: @10.70 GHz 39.2 dB, @11.70 GHz 39.95 dB, @12.75 GHz 40.70 dB
2/Orbital 100cm = 40.5dB gain at 12.75GHz
3/Primesat 100cm =40.3dB gain at 12.75GHz

Any advise welcome.

1m Channel Master is the best 1m dish I've tried. Signals levels weren't very far off the 1.2m CM... With a bit of tinkering, you can put it on a DiSEqC motor, if it's in sheltered location.
