    If you are in Spain you may have noticed if you have had your television on today that you have no Channel 5 in Spain on tghe costas.
    The channel along with some of the ITV channels have been moved to the new narrow beam satelite more channels, BBC1,2 Channel 4 and others are likely to follow before the end of the year.
    So if you want to keep up with your corry street in Spain you will probably need a 2 metre or so dish on the roof of your camper/caravan, really practical that.

    The powers that be in the UK obviously feel that you are getting something you should't have so they had better stop it.:swear::swear:

    More information can be found on www.satandpcguy.com a very handy web site in Spain.

    All channels romped in on 60cm dish ( with pretty damned good LNB glued on the front ! ) in southern Spain.. Loads of peeps with massive free standing dishes but my little old automatic works just fine on the roof !

    A lot of people use huge dishes and rather duff LNB's ( I saw a couple that were actually rated at 1.2dB and higher.. I have a .6 on at the moment but am about to swap it out for a .1dB unit.. Not a cheapo option but it works very well indeed :thumb:

    I have just came back from Sardinia, South of France, Spain & Portugal over October & November.... When in Barcelona 4 weeks ago it was tipping down and blowing a gale.:Cool: Yes we had a brief flurry of snow here the other day. It was really nice.:thumb:

    We will be back in Portugal in a fortnight's time, after enjoying several Xmas parties here....:beer::wine::drink::party2:

    My "compensation" is the best of both worlds thanks.........:Tongue1::Tongue1::imoutahere::winky:

    We are at El Portus near Cartagena. We lost these this morning

    10.964 H SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (CH5/5USA/5*/Channel 5+1),

    10.994 H SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (ITV 1 Granada HD/ITV 1 Central South West SD/ITV 1 Anglia West SD/ITV 1 Meridian North SD/ITV 1 Yorkshire East SD/ITV 1+1 Yorkshire SD),

    11.052 H SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (ITV 1 Central South SD/ITV 1 Central East SD/ITV 1+1 Wales SD/ITV 1+1 Westcountry SD/ITV 1+1 Tyne Tees SD), and

    11.126 V SR 22.000 FEC 5/6 (Channel 4 HD/4Seven SD

    We have an 85cm Oyster Dish on the Motorhome.

    BBC 1, 2 etc Ch4 and ITV1 (Tyne Tees) are still being recieved at present but it looks like we will lose them all by the end of the year.

    Not in the slightest, the post was intended in a FUN humourous way....::bigsmile:

    Merely Banter replying to your Banter..... :RollEyes::RollEyes:

    Perhaps though your sense of humour is like your Ch 5, :wooo::imoutahere:...:winky::winky:
