Famaval 3.1m Prime Focus Satellite Dish
One of the most popular 2.4m Prime Focus Satellite Dish es installed on the Costa Blanca over the past decade or so is the Famaval 2.4m satellite dish.
Some say this is one of the best performing 2.4m Prime Focus Satellite Dish.
Famaval are based in Portugal and manufacture a range of satellite dishes / parabolicas.
One of the reasons why this Famaval 2.4m Prime Focus Satellite Dish was popular on the Costa Blanca is that it is “future protected” against possible changes and reductions in satellite signals.
The Famaval 2.4m Prime Focus Satellite Dish can be upgraded to a 3.1m Prime Focus Satellite Dish.
This upgrade is done by the installation of eight “extension panels” around the edge of the satellite dish.
However, one of the problems with these extension panels is that it can be tricky to get the panels aligned correctly for maximum signal.
