He is in Lincolnshire England,
I think you will need at least a 500cm dish for this see map below but as you are a very long way outside the service area you may not get this.

I think this is nice size of dish and nice dish as well. Why do not you try tune it to 36*E and check. First you can use universal LNB just to locate satellite and after getting maximum signal from horizontal or vertical polarized frequencies just change LNB to circular one.

Do you still receive Eutelsat 7.3 West with 100cm dish in UK? Does it include Al Jazeera Sport Channels? I remember reading about lowering the signal before this season's start.
