Hi - I am setting up a freeview dish for my fathers caravan. Space is a premium so the smaller the dish the better. Is 360mm ok reception wise and also ease of daily setup? Is a smaller dish easier or harder to tune in?  cheers Ross

Hi, I would recommend a 45cm as a minimum, although dishs of this size do seem ok, just more prone to rain fade, the smaller the dish the easier to align. 45cm or smaller seems to be pretty easy for most non techy folk to work.

Cheers
Cyril
