    Hi there!!
    I have a Pansat 3500sd receiver that I want to put back in use if it is still possible considering its been collecting dust for the last few years due to bin files being unavailable. I want to go free to air. The one channel that I am interested in picking up is RTP( Portugal). Is it possible to get it with my current receiver? Do i have to load any software into the receiver? or just put it back to original factory settings. Also what size dish do i need ?
    Im new around here so any help would greatly appreciated? thanx:)

    yes the 3500 will work fine. A factory reset would be best

    as for dish a 30" is minimal....preferably 36" or even a 1m if you're in TO.

    Welcome to the forums.

    In addition to Iceberg's suggestions my guess is that you may need to swap out your circular LNBF for a linear LNBF based upon what you said about bin files being unavailable.

    And, I believe the RTP is available at 101W KU free to air. 1m is a 1 meter dish sometimes referred to as a 39 inch dish, here in the colonies.

    RTPI can be seen FTA on Galaxy 19 at 97W on this transponder: 12060 H 22000. Watching it now. "1m" means a 1-meter diameter dish antenna.

    Standard linear LNBF and a 30 inch minimum dish. 36 (90cm or .9m) or larger recommended. Larger dishes are less prone to adjacent satellite interference.
