Title: Getting Hispasat 30W signal from Italy?
Post by mesco64 on Nov 27th, 2006 at 4:24pm
Is there anybody that could help me watch Spain tv channels here in Rome?

I've got my dish pointing to Hotbird 13E but I'd like to watch spanish tv adding a new illuminator to it. In theory I could set a new illuminator at 43 from the current one but I'm uncertain if signal from that is strong enough.

According to your experience, is it possibile just adding an illuminator, or should I buy a separate dish? Or maybe the signal doesn't covers Italy and it couldn't be done anyway?

I already know there is a couple of spanish channels available in Italy (Hotbird) but I'd really like watch TFA channels directed to Spain that are seen through Hispasat. :-)

Thanks in advance

Thanks, this morning I checked against the Hispasat site and the 1C/1D coverage map seems encouraging.

Italy appears to be near the strong signal area. I should check if the channel I want goes transponders pointing towards Italy.

I already use 2 illuminators on the same dish (the diameter is 80cm I think), one for Astra the other for Hotbird, so I'd have to find a way to mount the third one at a very precise angle but don't think it's a big problem.

Any suggestion?
