Hello Tatuo,
   there are many ways to start out... but most will agree that a 3' dish with a helix or a patch feed will work very nicely with a good
downconverter, or a good preamp used with a cheaper downconverter...

a smaller antenna will require a much better preamp and downconverter, a larger antenna will let you use a cheaper downconverter
and possibly not need a preamp...
