Does anyone have a list of test transmissions from Astra 1N when it was under test in 2011?

Thanks for all the info. Just looking at what potential frequencies are likely to be used at 19.2E.

We can rule out 11.214H - 11.436V as this apparently isn't covered by 1N.

Also there was very little reporting of any tests between 11.739V - 12.051V and this band was never used at 28.2E by 1N either. Perhaps 1N doesn't have many usable transponders in this range.

Everything else was pretty extensively used at 28.2E or tested at 1.8E.

All three are the exact same quality level as when I last checked on Saturday for me. No change here.

Lost a few 1L transponders from the top band 12.515H upwards and some are just locking on an 80cm in Helsinki. Will have a proper check and report back soon.

These look like the changes from last night (I think all were 1L transponders). Reception on an 80cm in Helsinki with a DrHD F15 and Black Ultra LNB. In brackets reception from last week in similar overcast weather conditions.

It looks like the signal is fading. Hopefully it'll pick up later on.

92 1L - 12.246V - Now 8.3dB (was 12.1dB )
105 1L - 12.515H - Now 3.8dB (was 12.3dB ) No lock
106 1L - 12.522V - Now 6.7dB (was 12.0dB )
108 1L - 12.552V - Now 6.0dB (was 12.4dB )
110 1L - 12.581V - Now 6.4dB (was 12.3dB )
111 1L - 12.604H - Now 2.5dB (was 11.4dB ) No lock
114 1L - 12.640V - Now 5.0dB (was 11.9dB ) No lock
116 1L - 12.670V - Now 5.8dB (was 13.0dB ) No lock
119 1L - 12.722H - Now 3.2dB (was 10.6dB ) No lock

Biggest loss today for me was Sky News on 12.604H which looks to be the weakest transponder of the lot. Will have to look at setting up an LNB for 1W.
