He's in Chile, not wanting programming from there :)

That might be tough as we mainly deal with stuff in North America

Many Ku-band satellites in Latin America are for subscription programming, but you might find something on Ku-band from Nahuel at 71.8 West (Argentina). The best choices in programming will require a C-band antenna of 2.5 meters or larger, depending upon satellite and polarity setup. C-band satellites worth looking at include those at 61.0, 58.0, 55.5, 45.0, 43.0, 40.5 and 22.0 West.
Look at www.global-cm.net and go to the MPEG-2 section for an idea of which channels are offered on the latter.
Even more details as well as coverage maps can be found on www.lyngsat.com (harder to understand for a novice).

Good luck!

Mike

I will try to make myself more clear. I want to receive FTA satellites from my location here in Concepcion, Chile ( Lat. 36.83, Long. 73.05 ). Can I use any of the Fortec FTA receivers, Pansat or any of the many FTA receivers? What is the difference of the FTA and the DBV receivers? Would I be better off to use a DBV receiver? Also can I use MY DirectTV dish (30 inc. I think) which is still installed (but with other LNBC for FTA ), it is not in use since I have stopped service? Do I need a larger dish? Now, If in the future I decide to begin DirectTV service again Will I need another Dish for for FTA or can I use same dish for both? What Satcontrol HH motor will I need for the DirectTV dish? Would it be better to update the LNBC to a Extreme 0.3 Db one or another type? Sorry for all the questions, I am new at this. TOM

FTA satellite receivers are a universal standard, DVB. We are in the USA, maybe it would be best to ask locally what is available in your location.

And its always a good idea to use as low a noise level (dB) as you can get, the Xtreme LNBF's are GREAT, see the review area!

thats the one thing I wish Lyngsat would do.....list what you could receive from what location!

i.e. in US, you can get: xxxxxxxx

in Mexico, you can get: xxxxxxxxxxxx




would take a long time to set up, but hey, what they have now took a long time too!

The only problem with that is line of sight and where you are

They couldn’t say “this is what you can get if you lived in the US” because depending on where you are, it may be non existent or not feasible to get those satellites.
If I had a fixed dish, I can get Hispasat (barely) and I am in Minnesota. Someone in Tennessee, Ohio or in the Eastern time zone will be able to get it much better than someone in MN, IA, ND, etc. Go west of the Dakotas and Hispasat is non existent.

Conversely, someone in New York may not be able to get the western C-Band satellites.

^absolutely true, but it would definitely narrow it down more than what it is.

"potential channels available in your area"


:D

Using at least a 1.2 meter offset antenna, a universal linear LNBF and DVB satellite receiver (Like Fortec or Pansat not DirecTV) in theory the satellites with KU coverage and FTA DVB content you should be able to receive in Chile are:

Hispasat 1C/D at 30.0°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/hispa.html)
TP: 11787 V; 11884 V; 11915 V; 11933 V; 12052 V; 12132 H; 12156 V; 12169 V; 12172 H; 12175 V

PAS 1R at 45.0°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/pas1r.html)
TP: 11788 V; 11855 H

Intelsat 707 at 53.0°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/i707.html)
TP: 11875 V

Nahuel 1 at 71.8°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/nahuel1.html)
TP: 11603 V; 11611 V; 11626 V; 11636 V; 11649 V; 11692 V; 11710 V; 11726 V; 11737 V; 11776 V; 11957 V; 11997 V; 12036 V

Intelsat Americas 8 at 89.0°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/ia8.html)
TP: 11882 H

AMC 4 at 101.0°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/amc4.html)
TP: 11655 V

SatMex 5 at 116.8°W (http://www.lyngsat.com/sm5.html)
TP: 12024 H; 12028 H; 12059 V; 12080 H
