Is there any benefit in having a larger dish. What situation is a larger dish required. What about if there are a lot of Receivers on the system say up to 10, would a larger dish be required.

It just means you can peak up a weaker signal, so for transmitters that are harder to pick up then for example the one that sky and freeview is transmitted on you could use a larget dish to boost the signal

System: It just means you can peak up a weaker signal..


And using a bigger dish will eliminate rain fade problems.

It depends on what you want to watch (from what satellite).

If all you wanna watch is freeview or sky then a 65cm dish is more than adequate. You're not likely to see rain fade on this size dish for those services except in extreme weather conditions as long as it is aligned properly.
