We have the Oyster Caro which has a small footprint on the roof, it was fitted in 2013 but removed from a another van so unsure of the age.
The Cytrac is a newer model so probably better ?

I can't remember exactly how far south in europe we receive uk tv reception but we could listen to LBC Radio when in Italy and on our way back from Italy after emerging from the Mont Blanc tunnel we pulled in at the first service area for a break, switched the TV on and within a minute listened to the news on Radio 2  we've found the system excellent and more than happy with ours.

Have you thought of Motorhome WiFi instead?  I have a fitted and hard wired 4g WiFi router and last night we watched The Apprentice on iPlayer using an iPad here in the south of France with a perfect picture. The system was about a quarter the price of a satellite system and works in most towns and villages. Yes you have to buy a 3 Internet With Legs data card(s), which we have 3of, but there's always a price to pay. Satellite is old hat the internet is the future. Plus you can use your smartphone package abroad to tether to.
