Depends which channels she would like to receive. In Canterbury it is not a
problem to receive the Europe-beam with a 150cm dish, but it will be a
problem do get anny channel of the Turkey-beam. Even 450cm deliver only a
very noisy picture.
To have the Europe-beam, normal receiving equipment is just fine and you
find adresses of installers/suppliers in TELE-satellite magazine. For
azimuth and elevation calculating I will need the exact location in degree.
