A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

It might. However, for now it does not pass the conditions required for inclusion into the table.

You can add my Unimesh - modified, 12' dish to the chart if you wish. Certainly not standard and it is currently locked on 24.4 West...


@Channel Hopper

Table updated to include your 3.6m Unimesh dish.

It is the only dish in the table that is in service and owned by a forum member who is UK located. Any UK based forum "ghosts" wishing to come forward with table contributions most welcome.

With satellite dishes it's how big it is that generally has the most impact on signal reception. With that in mind I have created the "Big Dish Men & Ultimate Dish Men" table to provide visibility of which forum members are in the premier league. The table is attached below. If any forum member wishes to be removed from the table, added to the table or have their details updated please let me know via this topic and I will process the update.

The lack of UK installations in service in the table is probably due to restrictions by local authority planning regulations unless workarounds are found using mobile structures. However, we do have two enterprising UK members listed with the potential to "go large" In addition, the satellite enthusiast hobby seems to have declined more so in the UK in recent years compared to other geographic locations?

Apologies for ommissions, I am sure that there are quite a lot. I created the table quickly rather than exhaustively searching the forum.

wow a 3.7m dish in the UK if only i had the space :D

Just in case you were not aware of it there is a man very local to you with an even bigger dish (3.8m Paraclipse mesh dish). :cool:
I think Yorkshire must be the UK equivalent of Texas, everything seems to be big up in Yorkshire.

There are pics and videos of his setup on another satellite enthusiasts forum. His C-Band signal scan results are supposed to be absolutely mind blowing.
