    This is a really interesting site, thanks Sinbad. I have a rough paper equivalent, but this is much more fun and more accurate.

    I have a sat system on the van but have never used it much as the dish is only 60cm and its a pain getting it lined up, but this thread trigered me to go looking for info on Astra2B
    and I found this.

    SES ASTRA - Footprint Graphics 28.2 E

    So tomorrow I will give the astra 2b south try and let you know.

    I used to have one on the front of my boat, same size can be a bit trying at first ;but with a bit of practice you soon get the nack.

    maplins sell a meter that makes the process a lot easier.

    Well I have found Astra2 and I have a good signal here in Tenerife but I cant find any ref to to astra2b on my digibox (it is not a specific freeview box) and I cant find any freeview channels.

    What am I missing??
