Nice signal strengths on the normally weak Rustavi 2 & 1TV Georgia signals :)

I've never looked at 42E, so I'm just wondering what the attraction is (other then getting a load of channels, of course) since I don't know a word of Turkish and I can't physically see it from my balcony in Finland. Am I missing something good? Do any of the channels transmit in English?

And if you could see Turkey from your balcony, it'd be a good deal warmer there.

No real attraction, its just another couple of hundred fta channels.

Im not really bothered about the programming on any of the channels I have access to - even Sky UK is more to keep the missus quiet then for my benefit. I rarely sit down to watch anything apart from the old Top Of The Pop 77 stuff on BBC4.

Its more a case of pushing my equipment as far as it will go and seeing a few more channels I havent seen before. :)

Another scan has bought up TV9 on 12639V 4070 5/6. Which is a new one on 42E for me.
