I was wondering if a 6 foot would work to get RTV on 87W C band or for Legacy TV on 97W C band?
Thanks

Legacy TV yes
RTV...possibly.

The RTV feeds are DVB-S2 and are hard to get on a 6 footer
Legacy TV (dont know what is on there that you find interesting. I have a local that carries it and its mostly infomercials and religious stuff) is very easy to grab on the 6 footer

I can't get the RTV stuff on 87W with an 8 footer. I mean the signal is is there but too weak to get a good lock.

RTV on my 6 footer is very unreliable. Some days it will lock, others its gone. A larger dish is definitely recommended.

I have a 10 footer and get Rtv without a problem.(New Jersey area}
I was not aware that Rtv was DVB-S2 ,so I guess my new openbox 10 is working fine on C band.
I have KU also but I am not sure if its worth while too hookup since most are foreign programs...TT

In upstate NY the RTV channels come in with 83-89Q lately on 87W with my 10' dish with never a problem. I've tested with several of my 6' dishes and one of the RTV TPs isn't really watchable, however everything thing else like THIS, Nasa and MeTV are all fine with the 6.
