UK TV reception, Costa Blanca & Costa Calida 


All satellite dishes supplied by Television Technology are superior gain models.


There are other dishes available which are either budget or economy (though may not be sold or listed as such). We do not supply these due to inferior signal gain levels.


All LNB's supplied are also paired with specific dish model to offer the best performance available.


Segmented or 'multi panel' models we do not supply due to poor performance in comparison to single piece models.
