Or just stay in the UK and get good reception all the time.

Ive got a 85cm Oyster system and the signal disappeared once I got near the Pyrenees.




Never yet met a Yank I couldn't take an immediate dislike to.

Might be good reception Peter but mostly repeats or reality trash.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifes savings. Guess what? He robbed us of 750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

Im actually delighted when our satellite goes out of range now. It means I dont have to endure some of the crap Mrs D likes to watch. To be fair she does like a lot of good stuff, even high brow stuff but she also has a liking for soaps and trash. Anyway a summers evening in Provence who the hell wants to sit in and watch TV? Mind you if your Peter and spending your days in Skeggy watching the rain I could understand.
