If you refer to the Sirius Satellites then you should get some of Sirius2 on a 120cm dish, but certainly not all... you would get the Europe transponders but not sure about Nordic, probably a bigger dish would be needed ... dont know about Sirus3 etc. Will look at the dB tables if I get the urge.

Have a look at this link as it displays the different Sats and Antenna size for each region.

already looked their :)

However was wondering what you were actually using, as those maps are only theory... and often wrong.

And is Viasat currently hacked?

Sorry I don't use the service, as I only know of this site from my Comms background in Aus. There is a Russian contact on the website if that helps!!!

Thanks folks!

I will check it out. Just curious if I could get US digital-radio. Mostly looking for the talk-shows, morning-shows, etc.

Thanks for the PM TFS.

I have a 1.2m dish with actuator (rotates from sat to sat)

As for Viasat, I used to have A LOT of their channels, but since they changed systems, I now only have Viasat TV3 (all American TV shows with Danish subtitles) and TV3+, also with a a lot of American shows with subtitles. This is all I really need to catch the latest US sitcoms, so I haven't even bothered calling my sat guy to see if anything else out there hacked is worth checking out.
