***C BAND RECEPTION LEVELS & DISH SIZES IN THE UK*** 
C BAND has been usually received on larger dishes but with the advent of better LNBs, more sensitive receivers & some higher power/ better footprints, Eutelsat & Intelsat now both quote dish sizes from 90cm for 41dBW & some beams reach 42dBW & even 43dBW & these figures are for reception with acceptable margin and not minimum & RAIN MARGIN can be much better in C Band as it is genuiningly less affected by rain or clouds, so some C Band has become more than acceptable on as low as 90cm and there are TV channels carrying some useful events & programming on C Band.

Old dish sizes based on 20 Kelvin noise temp' LNBs & older less sensitive tuners
New dish sizes based on 'estimates' using 13 Kelvin noise temp' LNBs & new sensitive receivers/ tuners.
Minimum dish sizes based on no bad weather or adverse condition margins with new figures. 
Reception of Linear can be reduced if the LNB is fitted with a dielectric plate for circular C Band reception.

3.3E C BAND LINEAR FOOTPRINT
3.3E C BAND LINEAR FOOTPRINT
This was easily the easiest (Linear) C Band to receive in the UK on a 1m offset dish, this 
was so strong it could be received with the dielectric plate for CIRCULAR in the LNB.

THIS POSITION HAS ALTERED - SEE 3.1e & 2.9e C BAND CIRCULAR! 
eutelsat_5wa_c-band_global_downlink_coverage_2
5W C BAND CIRCULAR FOOTPRINT
With a massive coverage area, it can carry channels & broadcast feeds
 including some that carry live sports events free which would be on pay 
tv or not avaiable in the UK at all. 
27-5w_intelsat-907-east-hemi.   27.5w_intelsat-907-ne-zone
27.5W C BAND CIRCULAR FOOTPRINT
27.5W carries a lot of USA channels for different regions from Voice of America 
that do carry a lot of Ameican based programming in English plus other channels 
for example RTG from Guinea that carries live football not available free in the UK.
am44-1-_c_band_11
11W C BAND CIRCULAR FOOTPRINT
11w carries Russian channels & there has been an interest in Russian TV since
they can show LIVE EPL free , the reception isn't high, in fact it comes in at below
lock level on a Technomate but is 100% even in quite heavy periods of rain.
22w_ses4_global_c_band.
22W C BAND CIRCULAR FOOTPRINT
22w Carries Atlantic TV/ Sport TV/ NEWS TV as part of an encrypted package
plus obviously African based channels, luckely they all like football including
English & world cup games & don't always play by the rules.
20e_arabsat_5c_c_band
20E C BAND CIRCULAR FOOTPRINT
20e has a lot pf Arabic channels including special free versions of JSC 
Sports etc.. that can show premier live sports events FREE.
C BAND 37.5W C BAND FOOTPRINT
37.5W C BAND LINEAR FOOTPRINT
The signals on 37.5w are quite high for the UK reaching beteeen 41-42dBW 
and are LINEAR so may be receivable with the dielectric plate left in.

There are a lot more C Band footprints into the UK, this is a selection of 
some of the easier ones to go for to start with.
