at a guess id say 1.6m for verticals and 2.4m for horizontal txps although people get various results with smaller dishes, even so i am in bolton and dont get anything from nilesat using a triax 1.1m and 0.1db lnb. regards mdt

horizontal and vertical are different polarities used in the downlink frequency so you can get more channels in the available bandwidth. regards mdt

i think i'm right in saying that you can get a few verticals in the uk at night on a 1m+,but no chance on the horizontal transponders,i think well over 2m is needed for these
i also think showsports are on H,so again no chance
there are a few film channels on the V's though
i notice it needs to be after dark and a clear night with no rain
pleas feel to correct me if im wrong on this

i've got a 1.2M dish and recently got an ivacom lnb and that improved the verticals, even in the rain. no chance, but it tries the horizontals.
