    I'm sorta near scranton.
    I receive it here in CT. on 83 W with no problems on a 76 cm dish.

    My question is how large a dish would I need? I have been researching this question but I've been coming up with contradictory answers.
    If you can only find a 7 footer then that should work for you, getting a 8,10, or 12 footer would give you better coverage across the entire band in the long run, but they can be harder to locate in certain areas and may cost you more.. I can get it just fine with my dish.

    No problem with KU 83w here. I'm using a 31" dish and motor. As a side I'm using a fixed 25" to receive Hispasat 30w with very good results except when it rains.
    Openbox S9, 33 dish with Stab 90 HH and PLL321S-2 LNB. 25 fixed at 30W with PLL321S-2.
    Temp setup, 33 dish at 125W with PLL321S-2. Spare Invacom QPH-031 LNBF.
    Other: OTA, CM 4221. Cushcraft Ham triband HF and wave 2 metres Ham.

    Thank you for your response. 7 feet is a little too big for my situation. I thought I could get away with a smaller dish because when I look at the footprint for SES 2 (87W) at lyngsat-maps

    northern W.Va appears at to receive a 42-43 dBW signal which, I understand, corresponds to a 80-cm dish, yes? I am confused.

    BTW, I apologize for sorta waylaying the thread but I am interested in Tuff TV and I live close to Pa.
