    Intelsat 903 at 34.5°W and Telstar 11N at 37.6°W

    I agree,I have a 24 inch jack and think you can only go so far,unless you have a horizon to horizon acuator. I used to have a International feed that ADL or CalAmp used to make,but have no idea where its at now...........TT

    Intelsat 903 at 34.5°W and Telstar 11N at 37.6°W

    Only thing I knew from the past (mid 80s early 90s} A 6 or 7 footer is if you are in the middle of the states a 10 - 12 footer if your on the east coast. Sooo to me being from Northern Nj,It makes no sense in picking up anything further then 53w with a 10 footer.........TT

    Intelsat 903 at 34.5°W and Telstar 11N at 37.6°W

    I was always told As you go for the satellites in the atlantic you would need a 12 footer instead of a 10 footer. The further you go the bigger dish you will need. Still cannot unstand how people can pick up satellites at 33w with a 6 or 7 footerfooter?.........TT

    I don't get it My 10 foot dish have always gone from 139w - 55.5w on C band if that far. I think I would need a Horizon to horizon dish too go any further west over the atlantic. Any reason a FTA on C/KU can pick stations further west then we used too over 10 years ago? TT

    SAMI Satellite dishs , gone out of Business,dammmmm

    I agree there are many 10 and 12 foot dishs if you want to drive atads. Yes some folks might want a few dollars and it might still be worth it. Better then having to spend $1500 - $2000 for a new dish...... Most of us were ahead of the time when we bought these in the mid to late 80s. And I...
