If the test card is 11461 V 2992 then on my TD110 I can just about scan it on my TM5402 and DVB card but the picture is broken up for the most part. 25m cable run with Black Ultra in South London

Hm sat never replied to my mail regarding the delivery into uk. So I take it as they are not delivering to uk anymore. Great Brexit result
I believe Dish result can only be best comparable if you have all the dishes you want to test with the same lnb, receiver, cable and you test them at the same time.

I've got a few websites saved that give the option of shipping to the UK but whether they would process the order I don't know. Will let you know if I have any success if I order one

Even if they do process the order watch out for big import charges at delivery time.....

Is there any system developed yet to determine the import duty applicable
Lastly return will be very tricky if damaged in the way

When I checked on the government website, from what I could tell (it's not very user friendly) there's no import tax due on antennas other than 20% VAT, but you will be stung with a 'handling' fee by the shipping company for the pleasure of dealing with the paperwork and VAT.

Are you both UK based, where roughly if you don't mind me asking?

If you're getting break up on your 1.2, suggests my Triax is pretty well aligned as it's getting intermittent pictures

I've taken the plunge and ordered a 1M Gibertini from Germany, remains to be seen if it will be shipped and what fees await me upon delivery. I know it won't beat a perfectly tuned Triax but hoping the bracket on the Gibertini allows for better fine tuning. There didn't seem to be any alternatives in the 1.1 range apart from the Primesat 1.1 which is more like a 115

Here's my current bent Triax dish. Took quite a heavy knock and looks a bit out of shape if the string test should have them meeting in the middle. Not had any luck sourcing a new one delivered or for collection locally
