The following equipemnt you will need to receive the European Bouquet via
ASIASAT-2 via 100.5° East:

Digital Receiver:
SK 888 from Skandia, MASCOM/NOKIA 9500S, PACE 500 (slightly different
versions are on the market, so get the proper one from a real Pace-dealer!)
and PanaSat 520.
The dish should be at least 180cm. The c-banmd feed must be suitable for
horizontal recpetion and the c-band lnb should have a noise figure of around
17° to 20° Kelvin.
Some additional data for reception of the European Bouquet:
Frequency: 4.000 GHz
Polarization: horizontal
Modulation: QPSK
Symbolrate: 28.125 Msymb/sec.
FEC: 3/4
The service is free of charge. Look for a good installer, able to do a
proper job.
