Satellite Dish Size Confusion
There are two ways to actually measure a satellite dish.
The first way is to measure the horizontal length of the actual reflector part of the satellite dish. This is how a satellite dish is measured in most of the world.
The second way is to measure the vertical length of the reflector and include the outer rim of the satellite dish. This is how a satellite dish is measured in Spain.
This is how a satellite dish with a reflector measurement of 125 x 135cm, can also be known as a 1.4m satellite dish in Spain. And how a satellite dish measuring 180 x 180cm can be known s a 1.9m satellite dish in Spain!
