    Default EIRP values and dish size for Ku-band

    Here http://www.satlex.net/en/eirp_values_ku_band.html it is given a table for the dish size vs. EIRP values, for an universal LNB 0.7 dB.

    What would be the difference in dish size for a LNB of 0.2-0.3 dB?

    Thanks in advance.

    the difference is negligible. besides, most of these .2/.3 labels are simply that... labels. performance wise, always anticipate for certain fluctuations on signal quality even if you base your calculations on that kind of chart. get a big dish, bigger than the suggested size then only you can benefit from a good, stable signal.

    yep I figured. I was thinking if with a 120 cm dish I have chances to see a sattelite with a reccomended dish of 135 cm.

    with very steady hands, you just might be able to get the signal, if you are lucky to have out-of-footprint-side-lobe signals.
