Hello everyone, last day i asked that tooway works in these coordinates:

Latitude = 42.8611,
Longitude = 41.7350

120 cm dish antenna is enogh for me? if it is enough we have some 120 cm ku-band dish antenna.

I dont want to have a new 120 cm antenna because shipping these equipments to this region is really diffucult, nearly impossible.

bigger one

According to this, I think, 120 Cm Tria and modem may enough for me.

On the other hand,

http://www.satsig.net/tooway/satellite-dish-pointing-ka-sat-tooway-europe.htm shows no spot beam color for this region, but kasat-finder shows blue beam color, which one is true?

Thanks for your helps...

Good Afternoon

You do have coverage on the standard 66x72cm dish

However a KU Band Tooway dish has been tested by us, and it has not worked. There are specially made 1.2m Tooway KA sat dishes.

The dish used on this KA-SAT beam is a std. 72 cm dish.
We have many terminals up in Zakho region and all get db 14.3-5 TX, and abt. 10.0 - 11.5 db RX.
We give hardware for free. 
So you do not have to use homemade dishes that probably will not work well.
We also appoint resellers in the Sout-E/W. Turkish region.
Region authorisation Skylogic is present.
