Hi guys
I want to get 7E feeds, but I don't know what size dish I must have. I live in Tehran and this is the char I got from flysat:

7B Europe A > 45dBW > 85-105cm
7B Europe B > 51dBW > 50cm
7B Europe C > No beam
7C Western > 47dBW > 65-85cm
7C Eastern > 51dBW > 50cm

Is this the correct way of calculation, or the feed's frequency need a much stronger signal?

Since 7E does not currently have any actual Perm Channels with exception of NOW News 10720 V 27500
This would be possible on 85-105cm i currently get 16.6db 97% on my 2 meter Prime Focus dish .
But as such for past years then that chart guide is utterly irrelevant today .
For 7 East feeds with a decent signal for feeds you will be needing at least 1.4 meter dish dish but ideal would be 1.8 meter size dish
even at that given your location it may depend on weather conditions also .
Broadcasters do always love to Reduce many Feed signals especially on 7 EAST etc.. making even a 1.2m dish size totally useless and inadequate .
The bigger size dish the better chance of no Pixelations or even no lock at all .

Good luck : )

Yes good info for IMGA EU Feed its always usually above 13db so a small dish like that with good LNB is very likely to pick it up
but depending on weather obviously .
