Hi Tats, I don't know where exactly Kubadin is located, but do you know any other Expats in your village and what size dish they use? The reason I ask is that you may not need a 1.5 metre dish in your particular spot, you might get away with a slightly smaller one or, a slightly bigger one. I've heard of folk getting a good reception on 90cm dishes it all depends on location.
Ignore any posts that say you'll need a 3 Metre dish as I don't think these folk realise just how LARGE that is. There is a chap that posts on here that requires a slightly larger dish than most of the other Expats in the surrounding area because he's in a bit of a blind spot.
I have never heard of these Maplin dishes that come in sections and when I get chance, I shall ask on the specialist Satellite TV Forums what the experts reckon to their qualities.
However, saying all of this, you're safer with a 1.5 than a 90cm or 1.2 metre dish providing you have the place to locate it. They do tend to stand out though and let nearly everyone know that a Foreigner lives in that particular house. When I install mine, I want to find out if I can spray it green or something.
