    Is it possible on a 1 meter dish? Im in the midlands.

    is this multisat, or motorised?
    I'd doubt that spread is possible on fixed multisat, in fact, I'd say no, its not possible on a fixed.
    look here for dish size for motorised,

    42e, 19e 4.8e can get them if I manaully move my dish. Think I need a motor.lol

    yep,
    you'll never get that span on a fixed dish,
    I'd have a guess that 28-30 degrees is about the limit on a fixed dish, and bear in mind how much oversized you would need to be if you arent pointing directly at a sat......

    Or maybe you could have 2 fixed dishes?

    What are you after on 42e and 4.8e? ... just curious :)

    you could probably get 28 and 19 on your sly dish, as fixed,
    but getting 42 and 4.8 on one dish is not going to happen imho,
    its just too far apart,

    Thats my job for the weekend.

    Question: On my big dish can you pickup 19e and 16e at the same time and lnb? Is there anything good on 16e?

    I dont think you will get 19 and 16 as they are too close together, it may be possible with slimline LNBs, but I doubt it,
    I have 28, 19 and 13 on a fixed 65cm, and had to use a slimline LNB on 19 to get 13 close enough to get all the weak TPs
    6 degrees seems to be about as close as you can get decent signal on

    For about £40 why not jus add a motor to the 1m dish and get all on one dish---very simple to set up and with a euro sub you get hundreds/thousands of channels.
    At my location in UK I am able to go from 30w to 42e [1m dish] with a clear line of sight----I have the same capabilities here in Malta but using a 1.6m dish.

    Motor it is but will need a more heavy duty bracket.

    Plenty of brackets available on the bay or make your own from flat plates and bolts[very simple, 10 minutes task]

    Uni-strut is a simple way of making brackets.
