No issues with Hgh Beam transponders on a 1.8m in Bristol. Nothing at all from Wide Beam.

KOS beams look wonky. Here's the correct list.

Hi - speedy_04

Just had a look here with 1.2 Channel master ... and i am receiving that transponder ... but not with much margin .. North West u.k. ... 20 miles east of Lancaster.

What sized dish did you receive it on ?

thanks for the reply's. i am using a gibertini 1.25 dish with vu ultimo 4k box and getting around 47%. but i have noticed that the box is not storing some satellites but i think thats down to the motor. i have a new stab h-h120 to install but weather preventing install. this may help improve things
