Please do be aware that the signal may well change 'Seasonally' and that in a couple of Months time it may not be at the same level as now. This was the experience with 2f during 2013 when the signal was much lower between April and September.
However, generally at the moment 2e is 10% better than 2f.

Indeed, fingers crossed.

Don't forget that the make of the dish and line block make a difference in performance and apparently line blocks deteriorate with age (but are relatively inexpensive).

By email:

We had to change to a 1m dish in Prades le Lez - better reception throughout than previously with 80cm.

90 cms marginal at Junas 30250
90cms marginal at Calvisson 30250

I've been talking to a local installer and he is finding 1m is needed to guarantee good reception, 90cm marginal in bad weather.
