ARE YOU RECEIVING THE FULL SET OF CHANNELS?
From the footprint maps above you should be able to calculate the required dish size for your location. Quite often you will find that if you don't have the complete set of channels
you won't be receiving signals from all the required satellite beams.
The simple rule is - the bigger the dish, the more signal captured. A little local knowledge can be worth it's weight in gold - see what dish size your neighbours are using and if
they get full reception.
You can of course, if you wish, use a small dish to just receive the channels from one of the beams knowing that a larger dish is required for full reception of them all. [ back to info ]
