    Default bev Dish Recommendation

    Hello All

    Currently, My buddy has a Dish aimed at the 82. Her signal gets in about 80% of channels. Any recommendations on a dish or lnb that would allow for a stronger signal from the New England area?

    use the same as suggested

    im partial to the dp plus to hit both 82 91 if you get a new one

    lnb does switching pretty easy set up one dish one lnb

    Will keep the same. Thanks fellas. My friend gets decent signal on 82 but almost no signal on 91 based on where she is located.

    Here is an active foot print map for Nimig 6 at 91 West, as you can see by zooming in to the New England area (or her location) that the foot print for it goes almost all the way down to NYC.

    Code:
    https://www.satbeams.com/footprints?norad=38342
    If your friend is outside that foot print then she may be out of luck, a bigger dish may help, as it shows that at least a 30 inch dish would be needed right at the limit line by NYC.

    And I think you have your satellites mixed up as the foot print for 82 W misses the same area by quite a bit.

    Code:
    https://www.satbeams.com/footprints?norad=38342
    So maybe she is getting 91W but not 82W.
