If you are using an analogue meter , then it will only put you "in the right ball park" (even with FSD)

Digital meters are more accurate, and erm.. more pricey.

A bigger dish may help, too.
The angle of elevation for Milan is about 38 degrees for hotbird.

So if the flats are 100m form your dish then you should have a clear line of sight to the satellite if the flats are no more than 78 metres higher than the height of your dish.

That would give an angle of approximately 60 degrees, so it would seem you are out of luck.

so approximately how high would i have to go up to get over the flats my dish is about a metre off the ground level at the moment cheers
