There's always someone telling lies.

Things your dish installer didn't want to tell you
 Your dish may be smaller than you think
 In Spain and Portugal, most suppliers measure oval dishes by the long dimension. In other countries, they are measured by their width, the international standard. If you were told that you’ve had a 1.35 metre put up, you have a 1.2 metre. (It will be 1.2 metres wide by 1.35 metres high)
 Dishes of 100cm wide are called 110cm. You get the idea.
 1.9 metre offset dishes are really 1.8 metres. Famaval or “Portugese” “1.9” circular, or prime focus, dishes are really 1.8 metres. They have a wide non-receiving rim.
 Some unscrupulous installers lie about the size of dish installed, confident that no-one will go up on a roof with a tape measure. Even professionals find it hard to judge dish size from street level.
