    I am looking to get a few 1.3m dishes for max reception. Who sells them? Which ones are reliable?

    I would look into the Alaska / Hawaii 1.2 meter dishes. But unless you are in those regions, on the footprint fringes or just experimenting it's not going to be all that cheap.
    I picked up a yet to be installed 1 meter dish from an old international FTA customer.
    Fortec star has been making dishes for a long time and makes models up to 2.4m

    Looking into FTA resellers is probably not a bad place to start since a lot of true FTA requires big dishes.

    Here is a reasonably priced 1 Meter dish. It works wonders with rainfade and if you are on the "fringe" of your DMA's spotbeam it pulls in a lockable signal.

    Look around your city for old Primestar dishes. They were commercial quality. I have three of the 1m dishes I use for FTA, they are very solid dishes.

    Might save you a TON of dough.

    FYI I don't like the fortec dishes, too thin. But, as always, YMMV. :hurah:

    The Antenna´s weight is around (kg) 18.

    The dish is in a solid pole and I am using this type of dish to watch Sirius 4 , Russian, Latvian channels.
