Default Dish size for IMG3 EU for Winter

I have reset my Gibertini 100cm dish for this feed on 7 east very good atm but when I get heavy rain I get picture breaking up,

Will a 120cm Gibertini solve this problem or is this signal for 240cm ground station reception under all weather conditions ?

Good questio if the power does vary from this I suppose the bigger the better to accomodate weather adverse conditions

Just set up my true 1m dish after respray and this is the 1st time I've been able to watch this broadcast with virtually no break up. Your sig and quality level is exactly the same as mine with a little variance from time to time. Now on the look out for more larger repairable freeby dishes cause I know if it rains or the wind picks up this broadcast will be impossible to watch!

No problems here with my signals on the 100cm set up for the last 48 hours on this transponder

I will be upgrading to a 120cm Gibertini in the next few weeks
retire the 88cm & move the 100cm to this mast

I am in east side of Rep. Of Ireland and cannot get any signal on IMG feed at 7 degrees east with a 1 metre dish.If I increased to new dish size of 1.4 metres does anyone know if I would have more success?

1.2 meter dish will certainly get a signal
but in wet weather like today you will get some pixelation
1.4 meter is really ideal to be totally honest with you .
IMG feed at 7 degrees East is likely a much stronger signal in UK which is why most members here can get away with using smaller dishes .
You probably do'nt live a million miles away from me at all so this info should be spot on
i can lock today on IMG Feed with my 1.2m Channel master dish just about 8.4db and 60% its just about good enuff because its a wet morning and rain does not help signal on this feed at all .
cheers !

i just dried off my LNB on my 1.2m Channel master dish
Signal improved a little almost 9db and 64% with steady lock now ..Rain has now stopped for the time being at least : )
IMG3 EU Feed is currently FTA [ Black Screen ]
but does show TANDBERG Encryption ident "07D0"
SO EXPECT IT TO Encrypt Shortly for EPL Match Leicester vs Man U
cheers !

I'm glad I came across this thread, havent had any lock on IMG3 for ages, so decided yesterday to realign my dish, elevation was off.

Now getting between 63% - 66% quality on a 1.1m cheapo dish, was thinking of getting a Triax but maybe I wont need to now
