I'm just curious as to the spacing between Dish/Bell sats?
What is the requirements for Dish/Bell spacing between their Dishes so if Dish or Bell(assuming your using Bell as an example)between there sta so the singles or what ever type of system there using that the Dish can receive the signals?

I noticed that Dish has sats at 105 & 121?

Is possible to have 105,121 & 129(assuming all these sats have channels on them?) to get them using only one Dish? I'm not sure what type or size of dish you would need?

I know it possible to get get 72,82 & 91 using one dish although I'm not sure what type or size of Dish required?

Satellite locations are Government controlled, they also have different frequencies and powers they are allowed to operate on. 91 & 82 are slots assigned to Canada 105 and 121 are lower power satellites and DISH leases space on those satellites

Yes I know that, but I was in-require if its possible to pick up sats signals using one dish, sats located at 105,121 & 129 using one dish?

At one point Dish Network had a "SuperDish" that picked up 105, 110 and 119, and now a Dish 1000 for 110, 119 and 129, but never one that would get from 105 to 129.

Actually, 121 and 105 are not necessary "lower powered" they could in theory have transponders as strong as the DBS satellites, for Ku-Band, they operate in the FSS band (fixed satellite service) which is 11.7-12.2 GHz, while DBS satellites (DirecTV, Dish, ExpressVu) operate in the BSS (broadcast satellite service) band at 12.2-12.7 GHz.

MCIBUS, I would suggest a quick Google search for a Toroidial Dish, I once set one up with 12 lnbf's but I am pretty sure 16 or more lnbf's/Sats are possible.

61, 73, 82, 91, 101, 103, 105, 107, 110, 117, 119, 121.

Anything is possible for sure.
I would go over to the FTA side of Satguys, and they will point you in the right direction for a custom Dish.

You might be looking at a minimum 36 inch dish for what you want.

You need something like this.

Nice dish, except the Temp operating conditions the +60C is ok, but the -30C is still not low enough the winters here in Ottawa Canada can get pretty cold sometimes -40C+ with the wind.

I thought you had Bell Fibe ?

And have or had Dish as well, can't imagine you are now planning on going FTA as well....lol

Yeah I presently have Bell fibe & Dish, but I was wondering about the spacing between Dish & Bell sats and I was just fantasying about what if Bell Sat had 72(which I know they own, but least it to Dish),82 & 91 as there East arc and if they had owned(I know they don't) 105,121 & 129 as the west arc, they wouldn't have band issues like they do presently.
