    I must admit that I have thought about getting a dome. As I travel a lot in South Spain and Portugal, would I get any English programs.....anybody know??

    If you have a sky subscription at home you will get all your channels apart from itv and bbc although we did get itv near Malaga last year.:Smile:

    I have a max view dome but I picked up jack sh*t in Spain this year.

    Possiblty the lone tree that I tend to line up with the satellite though:Doh:

    I have a Neta dome which works well and like most domes is fine in this country but in Spain you will need a larger dish.

    Bear in mind that the dome will increase your height which will make you Class 3 on French toll roads rather than Class 2.

    If you are going to use in Spain go for a dish. Only disadvantage with the dish is that in high winds you have to retract it but that only happens rarely.

    I purchased my TracVision R4 satellite TV system from a south wales supplier though it was sourced through Eddie Van Bitz and Eddie advised me to go for this one so that in conjunction with my sky box I could record as well as watch.

    I have used it occasionally. The only time I couldn't get all my UK channels in Switzerland and Italy was when I parked up under a tree. I tried everything, then I moved the van a few feet and hey presto. :thumb:

    Not if you argue the toss.

    We had the LiberT-T tag and a few tolls classed us as class 3 but if you press the help button and say Parley vous etc they just press the class 2 button, there's a peep noise and orf you go:thumb:
