nor: Lyngsat will guide you what satellites will serve the coast of Southern Spain. I fear that BBC1,2,3,4,News,CBBC and CBeebies also ITV and Ch4, will be out of reach unless you can use a huge dish, maybe 2-2.5metres as they are on a tight UK only beam. There are some secondary channels that are open to all but even some of them may need 0.9 to 1.2 m dish.

If you look at the coverage map above your post you will see that the Astra UK beam does not cover Jutland at all. As it is a highly directional beam, there is no realistic chance of getting usable signals, not even with a 1.2m dish!

Just pointing out that the Astra 2a, 2b, and 2d satellites have been replaced by Astra 2e and 2f. The UK beam detail on SES's website is quite poor but roughly follows the 2d pattern above. Denmark is in unspecified territory but a large dish would be necessary as MikeP says.

Hi,i am advised that possibly reception is possible with 3 or 4metre dishes,do you have to have planning permission in italy,another way is to put two or more dishes in series,say 3x 1.20m.
