    I know some people are TV addicts but why two large dishes?? :Confused:

    Yes they were on the same motorhome at Duxford today.

    could be two separate receivers but no option for a dual LNB on that type of dish....or possibly aiming at different satellites...Astra and Hotbird

    They looked to be aiming the same way. I think I would have seen a difference between Astra & Hotbird. I did wonder about 2 decoders.

    I also wonder if it is possible to phase two dishes up to increase the gain. It can be done with beams but can it with dishes??

    Enjoy the show? We did! Wish we'd parked in the West car park and not the one over the bridge though, as we could have popped back to the motorhome for a lunch and a cuppa! Next time...

    Also a tad irritated that we couldn't use our Tesco vouchers. On the plus side though, we leafleted a few motorhomes! :roflmto:

    Hi.

    Yes a good show. I was parked at the West with most of the motorhomes, just passed the Lamd Warfare Museum, a long walk to the main area but OK to see the show from.

    Now on the CC site at Ashridge Farm nr Baldock.
