Is there much on 26e and 7w still receivable in the UK I have a few dishes knocking about 1m 1.2m 1.8m and 3 brand new 2.4m dishes in a lock up was thinking of setting a dish up as not looked on those satellites for a while or is it a waste of time? .

Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
26E and 7W will probably need at least a 1.0m, and preferably "the bigger the better", dish in order to get a decent number of channels - and not the same one => separate dishes unless on a motor.
PS: With my 1.2m Gibertini (on a motor) I can get a lot of channels on both sats.
