In the hope of settling an argument without resorting to fisticuffs. At least I feel I can trust y'all rather than the "experts" in the Dog and Duck.

Are any of you Funsters able to pick up Sky by means of a roof mounted sat dish anywhere on the Algarve pls? Or even south of Lisbon?

If so which dish and diameter pls?

Many thanks

You don't say which SKY channels you are interested in, therefore

Yes - you can pick up some Sky channels in North Africa - 85 cm Oyster / auto skew, roof mounted

The "discussion" was over Sky subscription channels in general rather than anyone specific.

Not wanting to appear picky but in your last sentence do you mean"not just" rather than "just not"? This makes a significantchange to your response.

Most of the Sky pay channels are on a "Euro" beam, and should be good to get.

Some Sky pay channels (inc the SD Discoveries, ITV Encore, ITV2HD,3hd,4hd, E!, Universal, ScyFy, BT Sports, GOLD, Eden, Watch, Alibi, ), and the majority of the free channels (BBC, ITV; C4, Five; Dave) are on the UK beam, so need a very large dish...

So it does depend which Sky pay channels you want...

Seems a bit like a score draw then.

Thank you

So whatever chemicals on baby wipes are strong enough to neutralise Putin's nasties are transferred to the delicate bits of very young humans. I hope that Porton Down has done it's homework.

You are then on UK narrow beam.

These are receivable on 85cms dish in Algarve.

UK Gov recommend SALISBURY residents "wipe personal effects such as mobile phones, purses and wallets with baby wipes and hand wash jewellery". See what I mean?
Sorry I was being a bit of a moonraker strong in the arm thick in the head! :rofl::rofl::rofl:
