    I might have a Roadpro twin LND Dome for sale.Its 3 years old and in perfect
    working order.The reason I may sell it is its no good below mid France,in
    Uk it works really well.So we want to change to a Oyster Dish as other thread.
    just wondering whether people buy second hand domes?

    Yes they do, but what are you hoping to get further afield with an Oyster that you cannot get with the dome?

    We won't / don't sell the RoadPro version so have no axe to grind by hate seeing people waste money unnecessarily

    I was recently south of Bordeaux and a guy next to us had a Oyster 3 Dish and was getting all the freeview channels where we had lost all the channels on our Dome just south of Le Mans.
    And at Easter it was the same.Perfect in UK and Northern France,nothing going South.

    If you imagine a arc begween Bordeaux and Lyon, and the same between the Alps and the Pyrenees you will loose guaranteed reception of BBC channels, ITV, Channel Four and Channel 5 and all derivatives

    The Oyster will be better, but marginally for the above channels and derivatives. Hard to justify the cost for a marginal improvement, and one I wouldn't recommend for our customers

    Wise words from Eddie, we have an earlier version dome and know it can be pot luck with a UK signal, even moving a few feet can mean getting a signal or not.

    Thanks Eddie for your input.
    I don't know if my Dome has auto skew or not,if not could that be
    The reason it doesn't work past Northern France?
