I would avoid the Fortersatar petal dishes and find a single piece dish instead. It may seem cheap, but its cheap for a reason...and it is no good for a fringe reception area like Spain
The Fortecs are not very stable, very light material, can be bent easily (people who have had them say they have send petals back as they are bent even when they come out of the box), they are a pain to set up (many of the holes need to be redilled to match perfectly), you need to get the petals installed 100%, and worse of all, to adjust the direction of the dish you need to move the WHOLE frame (dish and ground support), wheeras on most other dishes the dish sits on a pole that is bolted or concreted still.
The two 2.4m fortectstar dishes I have seen performed WORSE than a single peice 1.8m dish.
I have a page on these dishes which has a number of quotes from people posted on various Spanish and TV forums saying "avoid". http://www.satandpcguy.com/Site/petal_satellite_dishes_costa_blanca_spain.php
Dish size required and suppliers will depends on where exactly in "northern Spain" you areThis message was last edited by satandpcguy on 19/07/2011.
