the 2 x or 4x Opticum is a good choice if you want to receive the (now weak) UK Satellite TV Signals on a Dish up to 120cm. (the Single is not recommended). If it is for TV from Astra 1 or Hotbird etc. any make of LNB will suffice. BTW: a Twin LNB and a Double LNB are completely different items. A ...

Re: ORANGE Telephone to caravan

From the map it looks as if you already have four mobile phone masts in your immediate area. Suggest you pop down to Leclerc in Perpignan and buy yourself a DORO unlocked phone and a contract free Leclerc SIM card. The lot will cost you about £70 and you can be up and running on day 1. All you have...

I think it was Flybe's flights from Birmingham to Perp which I checked a couple of months ago and could not believe the prices - like £500 or something ! Hardly surprising the plane didn't fill up.
