Got a 'free' 65cm dish with my Fortec Passion HD.

Intended to add Hotbird & 19.2 to 28.2 but can't find a compatible lnb bracket.

So for £41 can get a motor from ebay instead.

Which other sats will pull in on a small dish?
Only FTA required.

Will have unrestricted view from at least 42E to 30W

with a dish that size you'll prob get 13e 19e 28e and thats about it really. i got a 80cm motorised dish and i wish id bought a 90cm instead as i cant get 16e up in the north of england

i'd go for a 90cm one if i was you like

Go to dishpointer.com

Enter your postcode in the box and click "go"

Clich on "all available satellites and estimated dish sizes for your location" just below the google earth image

It will tell you the size you will need for each sat.
