To go back to a previous answer in this thread reference BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Company) they take all their signals from the Eutelsat W3a footprint, if thats any good for you!!

BTW Duffer could I be so rude as to ask how much you paid for your dish and lnb etc without installation. Our friends have been quoted €190 but I'm not sure if thats just the dish or all the other bits included.
Not exactly sure. I paid €200 for the 125cm steel dish, wall mount, scaffolding pole and installation. The dish was about €105 and €30-€40 for the mount. €10 for the pole and about €10 for the LNB.

Really depends on the size of the dish and the make of LNB. If they are experiencing poor signal quality maybe a better quality expensive LNB is worth it however mine is a bog standard cheapo version.

I do believe captainmorgan from earlier on in the thread bought a 120cm dish from the same shop that supplies my antennista.

First night of signal loss with the new dish last night. I presume it was due to the heavy rain... Although the signal readings were still 90% for strength and quality

Hi. Thats good to know. I also realised why you paid less for the dish. Its because yours is in steel and the €200 one is in aluminum.

SO! England 3 Italy 0!

As a Leeds fan I wouldn't like to see chelsea in the final or for that matter win. So come on the 'pool.

Coming from an ex-Chelsea manager I'm not surprised!
Would you cheer for Man Ure, you being a Leeds fan, if they were playing Chelsea in the final?

I wouldn't exactly cheer for them but I would prefer from a football point of view for Man Utd to win. From a Leeds fan and a long long time ago service crew member I would not support either.

Where in Vicenza are you watching Sky UK from?
Did you get your Sky Tv sorted out ?
