Dish Size - Multi LNB Glasgow

In Glasgow and wanting to pick up 13E, 16E, 19.2E & 28.2E with a fixed dish - will I be able to get a good signal on all of these with an 80cm dish or should I go bigger (up to 1m)? I know bigger is better but would prefer to use the smallest dish that I can get away with.

80cm should be ok but fixed ?? you would be better getting a motor for the dish
I need to be able to access multiple satellites at the one time so fixed is not an option for this install but will likely add another dish for motorised reception in future.

I've got the Inverto quad dielectric 23mm LNBs for 13, 16 & 19 with the Inverto multiconnect bracket so that's not going to be a problem.

I am only asking if I will still be able to receive a good signal from 13E through to 28.2E on a fixed 80cm dish in central Scotland. Recommended dish size for each satellite if pointing directly at it is no more than 60cm for my location but assume the signal strength reduces with off-centre LNBs.

i would have moved the dish and see what you picked up
easy enough done
You've misunderstood. My dish is roof mounted and I cannot access it by myself. I have a single twin LNB on a dish pointed at 19.2 just now but I am moving to a 4 LNB set-up (13, 16, 19.2 & 28.2 hybrid). I require a satellite installer to make any changes to the dish for me. I was asking if 80cm would do for multi LNB set-up in my location based on satellites I am looking to pick up. As said above, have chosen 97cm dish to ensure I can get what I need so no longer an open question.

I have 4 LNBs receiving 13 19.2 23.5 28.2 on fixed dish 1.1m London & 1.0m Dublin. In London I changed from 16 to 23.5 for more English language movie channels.

I'm glad you went bigger,
I don't think 80cm would have been enough, I just get 13 19 28 on a 65cm in Manchester, I should have went 80, I think 16 will be very tight if you can even fit it in.
