About to resurrect a 1.8m dish last used on Intelsat 5. Waiting delivery on Dish TV S8200 so keen to utilise it fully.

What satellite would be the best to aim it at, and could that be one with BBC World ?

Thanks for any info.

You may need a bigger dish than 1.8m.
The BBC website says 2.9m but I believe a 2.4m solid dish may be adequate in the North Island.
Good luck!

Yes, I'm half expecting failure. Am in Dunedin and yet to find someone/way to align it.
If no go, what would be the next best ?
