    Firstly you should know the gentleman you refer to lives on the other side of the globe so mystified by your reference to Kent in the UK . If you type
    Irdet Engineer instead of ****** Engineer people will know who you mean.

    Secondly your intention to use C band in the UK astonishing as 99.99 percent of sat enthusiasts in the UK use Ku band. This is not only because 99.999 percent of programming there in on ku band but because one meter is the max size dish permitted in the UK without seeking the consent of your local council and unless you live in the countryside its most unlikely you would get permission ! For C band you should think of a min size dish of ten **** to get the most out of your system and would scarcely imagine the price of these in the UK ,..... C band being so rare in the UK.
    Where do you intend to place your dish...do you live on a farm ?

    C-BAND.

    I appreciate you comment however you are wrong. There is several satellites within view that use c-band. And still a good deal of c-band feedhunters find some gems that the majority dont talk about so they stay fta.

    I will be focusing on three satellites 40.5 43 and 45 west trying to get a cband analogue feed that i am told is there.

    I have a good neighbours who I try to keep sweet I think i will need to dig a hole for the 2.4m i intend to buy.

    The post was originally with his full name however the mods didnt approve.

    I saw an old post which gave various locations for 1rd2 kent being one close to me, however might be wrong and influenced by the bletchley park code breaking.

    "appreciate you comment however you are wrong. There is several satellites within view that use c-band."

    Exactly...thats the point There are dozens and dozens of ku band satellites and probably less than one in a thousand transponders visible in the UK are C band one being Panamsat 10 which can re received in both the UK and Asia simultaniously being at 68.5 degrees East. Let us know whether your RELATIVELY small C Band disc can receive it in Kent.

    C-band

    Will do. I am toying with the idea of a mesh dish as postage for a solid 2.4 dish is Ł400 from anywhere across the channel.

    Got any views on this.

    The location under a erpsons name can be misleading.

    Mine was chosen for the fun of it. No that I'm anywhere near Kent anymore.

    Life was much better when I lived in St Pauls in Bristol. Close enough you can walk to the polytechnic if you miss your bus... about 5 miles.

    But alas, I'm quite close to China and not far from Japan.
