If the satellite you want to receive is located on the extreme East or West of the horizon, you should also make sure that you will be able to get a line of sight from your house or building to the satellite.

The following dish sizes are recommended based on the signal you are able from a given satellite:
|Eirp (dBW)||TVRO Size (m)||SMATV Size (m)||Eirp (dBW)||TVRO Size (cm)||SMATV Size (cm)|
