We live in Javea and have a 1.4m people on the campsite get away with a 1.2m but I know in this area we are lucky with the foot print, go further south and north its not big enough. :D
I would say Jon @Satandpcguy will spot I have tagged him and he will give you the answer. (y) Bob.

You will not be able to get the Terrestrial channels BBC, ITV etc, I have tried with my 1.1m dish in Benicarlo since the sat change 2 years ago and failed.
We can get them here in Benidorm where we are in a bit of a hotspot.
Are you on a site? Can they provide a hookup?
Cheers
Ed

Come a bit further south, towards Valencia, and you may start to get them on the 1m dish...with exact alignment and little (ie no), rain margin.,

(I have an 80x85cm dish here in Gandia, and just about get all the UK beam channels, apart from ITV HD, and Discovery SD channels, with very little wobble or rain margin)

It should be fine until you get to about Benidorm, then the signals starts to get weaker again for the UK beam channels.

Not long enough, but a little common sense helps..........
We live near Murcia and need a 1.9m dish to get all the channels. On the MH the auto system small as it is gets none of the BBC ITV etc outside the house, but around Spain it will at times get a few of them.
