    Default Is Astra 19.2E receivable in Kuwait?


    I read initial discussion on this topic couple of weeks before in this forum then lost touch without knowing whether Astra 19.2E is receivable in Kuwait or not. I would appreciate if any mate who is receiving Astra 19.2 E in Kuwait to share information i.e. size of dish required, and strong frequency etc. Thanks

    Just the Astra 1M Wide Beam is easily to get in your area. A 1.20m gets it even down in the Emirates. But you have chances to get some frequencies part time a day from the other satellites/beams as well. Some may require really huge dishes far besides 3m others may be available even on smaller. There have been positive reports from Tehran on 2m some months ago.

    Take a look here:

    Look forward in hearing about your results.
    Best regards from cool, rainy and dark Germany.

    Thanks Deepbluesky. I asked a friend here who has 6 Feet solid motorized dish to try to catch Astra 19.2E. He did succeed to get almost all 1M channels. I will try to install my dish to find if we can grab channels other than 1M too here (if I get a place on the roof of our building). At the moment my dish is dislocated by landlord to build more rooms on the terrace.

    not sure where you are, but we tried with dish much larger than 6ft and failed. 1M signal is pretty stable even with 2ft dish.
