Don't know specifically about the Humax but a Zone 2 minidish is large enough for reasonable reception.

Due to its design it's supposed to be the equivalent of an ordinary 60cm - 65cm dish. This makes it just on the borderline so in heavy rain your signal stands a good chance of disappearing.

Try it and see!

I'd say Yes, I live in North wales I received it with over %75 strength using sky zone 2 dish.
