Not FTA.I don't know why your Fortec won't accept that frequency though.

It's free John, that's Star TV Network. Coming in fine here, although I have it scanned in at 11987, but that little difference shouldn't matter. Don't know anything about the Fortec's, so I can't help there, sorry.

an 18" dish WILL NOT work for KU band...you need at LEAST a 30" dish

(and yes skew is VERY important) :)
