Is it just me or do some people look for problems when on the continent. Our satellite reception is great, 60cm dish on a pole clamped to the bike rack and dont worry about the sat finder or the skew angles just point it a bit left of south, watch the tv screen which will show no signal, move the pole around a bit and the tv bursts into life. Oh yes the dish and pole came to £29 on Ebay. We have used this all over France without any problems. Oh yes.....If your propane gas is low get the charging adaptors on Ebay and providing your cylinder is EMPTY charge it in the LPG garages. I know some people will throw their arms in the air but if you can read the charging info and are capable of connecting a regulator then you are capable of charging a gas bottle. These adaptors are not something knocked up in a backstreet garage they are well made pieces of equiptment.
