[Comment moved from Freesat Astra 28.2ºE] dear Webmaster, we will be for some time about 100 miles east of Hamburg. Might there be any problems in reception with our Humax? cheers

You can perfectly receive channels that are broadcast on Europe beams frequencies. As for those on UK-Spotbeam frequencies, if it was possible you would need a big dish.

[Comment moved from Sky UK Astra 28.2ºE] Hi, I am moving to eastern Czech republic, town is Třinec. What size dish do I need for Sky HD channels? Which Astra sat should I tune my dish to? Many thanks.

According to the above maps in Estern Czech Republic: • You can receive European beams frequencies with, for example, 85 cm. • You can't receive UK-Spotbeam frequencies (no signal at all) or the signal is weak and you need a very big dish (maybe something over 300 cm).
Which Astra sat should I tune my dish to?
To Astra 2E / Astra 2F/ Astra 2G 28.2°E, the three satellites are colocated at 28.2°E. Dish setup angles in Třinec (Czech Republic): ··· Magnetic azimuth » 162° ··· Elevation » 35° ··· LNB skew » -1°

Dear Sir/Madan I am from the UK and live in Brussels right now. I wish to watch Astra, Freesat and possibly Sky channels. Can you please tell me what size of satellite dish do I need? Many people say 60cm, some say 80cm and one website says 100cm. And then others say that a flat rectangular dish from selfsat will do the job, but that just replaces a 60cm dish. Your advice would be much appreciated.

In Brussels signals (UK-Spotbeam and European beams) are very strong, as indicated on the above official coverage maps, so 60 cm is enough to receive all Astra 2E / 2F / 2G 28.2° East transponders in Brussels. Of course the larger the dish, the greater the margin, in particular for heavy rain fade compensation.

I am i Bergen, Norway. I can get Astra 2G god, how do I get 2E?

Astra 2G has a UK-Spotbeam and a Europe beam. Do you pick up both, Astra 2G UK-Spotbeam and Astra 2G Europe beam frequencies? How big is your dish antenna? To give you an overall idea: • According to the above official map a dish from 80 cm would be good in Bergen (Norway) to pick up Astra 2E Europe beam. • According to the above reception reports map a dish from 120 cm would be enough in Bergen (Norway) to pick up Astra 2E UK-Spotbeam

Good evening. I am trying to set up access to the UK FreeSat channels from our home in the Pyrenees in France (Bagneres de Luchon). I am hoping a 1.2m dish will be big enough? Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks
