              53e 45e 42e 39e 36e 33e 28.2/5e 23.5e* 19.2e 15.8e(low) 13e 10e(low) 9e 7e 4.8e* 2e inc'
              1w* 5w 8w 8w inc' 11w 12.5w 15w 22w 24.5w 27.5w 30w 34.5w 37.5w 43w 45w

              Those above are what you can pick up with a Sky dish in the UK so the bigger the dish the more satellites you will be able to pick up, if you where going motorised if not then you will need at least 2 dishes 1 covering east and the other west for multiple LNB.

                I wont be going motor. it will be diseqc switch with 4 LNB's.

                which are most popular satellites in the UK other than 28.2e?
                I know Hot Bird 6 at 13.0°E is very popular any more like these?

                I very much like the channel list on Hot Bird 6 at 13.0°E
                lyngsat satellite frequency chart transponder mux TV radio Lyngemark analog digital channel MPEG-2 MPEG-4 AVC HEVC DVB DVB-S DVB-S2 DVB-S2X DSS ISDB Digicipher ABS FTA SR FEC SID PID PAL HD UHD Viaccess Conax Irdeto Mediaguard Cryptoworks Videoguard RAS BISS PowerVu free FTA


                I thinking getting a dish with 4 LNB in pointing at 4 different satellites using diseqc switch. i have already chosen the satellites for LNB1 and LNB2.


                LNB1= 28.2e (SKY UK)
                LNB2= Hot Bird 6 at 13.0°E
                LNB3=??
                LNB4=??

                  The spread of the satelites you want to receive doesn't be too wide.

                  So you can try to get Astra 19,2 in the middle of Astra 2 and Hotbird and Astra on 23,5 for example.

                  It depends on your satellite equipment ...

                    if thats the case I will forget about getting another dish and just stick with 28.2e.

                      Your dish can go on the ground,it does not have to go on a wall or roof,
                      if you have sight off the sats. If it goes on the ground it is only 10 to 20 foot further away from the sats, than when it is up on the roof, over the thousands of miles it is to the sats this will make no differance.

                          They don't have to be loose, can be buried in a hose pipe or similar protective casing. I've done this a few times without any problems.
