    We used to have a guy here who was out in Egypt i think and he got it using a 3 metre dish although since then ITV has come onto the platform and they use a smaller footprint so I dont think youll get ITV but the BBC channels should be ok.

    Heres the footprint for Europe , as you can see its a funny shape but 120 Cm dish does the job in most places but the Middle east youll need something huge. Where abouts are you talking about in the middle east m8 ?
