Some parts of the UK receive a lower signal strength from the Astra 28.2E satellite that broadcasts Sky TV programming. UK regions in the extreme west (Cornwall) and north (including Scotland) should use a larger Zone 2 dish to avoid "rain fade" in heavy rain which causes picture pixilation and break up.

In many cases, the solution to poor Sky reception is to fit a Raven Zone 2 Sky dish. This type of dish benefits from over 80% more surface area (which translates to nearly twice the signal capture) than a standard 43cm Zone 1 minidish, which is standard-fit for Sky TV installations in England.

The Region 2 Dish is compatible with a Single, Quad or Octal LNB - so is suitable for Sky Multiroom, Sky + HD and Freesat Plus. This type of large Sky dish is frequently used for communal Sky TV systems due to the superior reception offered in adverse weather.

A Sky Zone 2 dish can be used in all regions of the UK and will significantly improve reception of Eurobird 1 at 28.5E which transmits CBS Reality, Men and Motors, True Movies and Moves4Men - channels which often suffer reception problems on a smaller Zone 1 MK3 dish as the signal is weak in comparison to Astra.

The Raven Zone 2 dish size is 60cm (H) by 70cm (W) and it comes with a sturdy wall mounting bracket, all fittings and DIY installation instructions. It can also be pole mounted on a 1.5 inch diameter mast (although not on an TV aerial pole, due to movement).

You can buy the Zone 2 Raven dish from Amazon for an amazingly cheap price of just £23.95!
