    I can't get my portable satellite set up to work here in Cornwall. I'm near Bude. I get an indication from the sat finder but can only get 10% signal. Is it because I'm too far West it worked fine last time I used it in Dorset? Any advice welcome please.

    It should certainly work. Are there any trees or hills in the way?

    Why not just try "Freeview " on your telly or even just the normal terrestrial channels?

    We stayed in Ploughhill and got those clear as a bell.

    And we have just the normal "saucer aerial, nothing fancy, bog standard.

    As said have you got good view of the sky for signal. Even a 40cm dish will get a picture of 70+%.

    We got a perfect signal in Woollacombe recently, not a million miles from Bude.

    No problems at all even further West than Bude.
