An FTA dish should be approximately 3 feet. The LNBFs on a Dish Network dish are circular polarization and cannot receive the linear FTA signals. The 100.2 dish is too small and the wrong type of LNBF for FTA.

FTA satellites are weaker than the Dish Network and each transponder on the satellite can be a different strength. The strength of the transponder largely depends on the cost of the service.

Buy a larger dish with a linear LNBF and you will start finding these FTA channels!
