You will get most of the transponders with decent signal quality. Both C/KU bands

Go with the six footer. I've got one here in Ohio does good. I've even managed to pick up a few of the channels from the Dominican Republic...kind of weak though. All the other stuff is good. Nothing like watching the Flintstones from Paraguay. I didn't know Fred spoke Spanish too. Blind:)

Dj, There's three at 4010 V 6383 Coral 39, Teleantillas, and Telesistema. On a good clear, sunny day I get them. I think my problem here is my six footer is motorized. It's not peaked perfectly on 116West. Too cold to mess with it. There's also a station or two from Paraguay, and Eqaudor. None of them English speaking. Shop around an 8 footer shouldn't be that much more than a six. 8 footer would help probably on the weaker stuff. Blind

Since DJ already has a 90cm motorized dish for Ku, I think he's looking just for C-band answers.

Oh DJ, if you click on Spanish on this site, it will list Ku channels.
(then click the header marked Satellite, to sort by bird)

116 seems to be having issues right now.

If you look at thelist the channels posted is what I received with the 6 footer. Now by all means I havent tried recently (due to the weather) to rescan them (since my dish is ghetto moved) ;)
