I am located in Dallas, TX and want to get signal from Satellite 50.0W. What size of dish do I need to get that satellite or if I can get it here? I have a 2.5 dish.

Just go to Dishpointer.com and enter your address and it'll tell you everything you can get and the size of dish you'll need.

If I did it right you'll need around a 7 foot dish for that satellite.

Are you looking for C band, or Ku?

Of the dish you have "2.5" what? Ft? M? CM?

I get a good signal from 50w C in Michigan with a 8ft (2.5m) dish.
You should have no problem, your in a stronger signal area than I am.

Last time I looked at Claro Tv it was the only ch in the mux that was ITC.
I think it is still up there somewhere, I'll look for it tonight.

Thank is good news PIXL, So I might need a smaller antenna then. That will work so I don't have to switch or buy a big antenna to switch from 58 to 50.

I re-aimed my dish on 58 over to 118 so I can't look for you. My motorized dish won't go that far east!
But like they said, if its there but scrambled, won't matter how big your dish is.

Well Claro has moved over to the Ku side of 50w, I also found it on 125w Ku, however both are scrambled.
