Anyone willing to post some 2G reception reports from Canaries or Africa? The Europe beam should be an easy catch in the Canaries and the old Eutelsat 28A D transponders should now be visible too. How is 2G's UK spot compared to 2F UK spot?
Some frequencies to check:
2G UK spot
10.964H 22.0 5/6 QPSK DVB-S
10.994H 22.0 5/6 QPSK DVB-S
11.024H 23.0 2/3 8PSK DVB-S2
11.053H 23.0 3/4 8PSK DVB-S2
11.067V 23.0 2/3 8PSK DVB-S2
11.097V 23.0 2/3 8PSK DVB-S2
11.127V 22.0 5/6 QPSK DVB-S
11.224H 27.5 2/3 QPSK DVB-S
11.225V 27.5 2/3 QPSK DVB-S
11.264H 27.5 2/3 QPSK DVB-S
11.265V 27.5 2/3 QPSK DVB-S
11.582H 22.0 5/6 QPSK DVB-S
11.597V 23.0 8/9 QPSK DVB-S2
11.671H 22.0 5/6 QPSK DVB-S
11.686V 22.0 5/6 QPSK DVB-S
I can receive all 2G Europe beams in Fuerteventura with a 1.2 metre dish.
Same here. Full availability but nothing that is not available on the EPG.I can get 10964H, 10994H, 11067V, 11127V, 11224H, 11225V, 11264H and 11265V.
Of those, there is nothing really new (or of interest) and therefore has no real impact on what I can / can not receive already on 2f/2e.
So, no better off but no worse off either.
The european ones, yes.Can I just confirm the dish sizes that you are using as the implications of the above are highly significant: are you saying that all the transponders implied by Timo's post above are receivable on a) a 1.2M or b) failing that a 2.7M in the Eastern Canaries? 10994H is of particular interest for obvious reasons for us Lanzarote ex pat folk.
Ahh I see... Ok just the European beam then. I would be interested in what the final conclusion was in regard to the UK spot - whether it is fully receivable on 2.7 or 2.4m dishes in the Eastern Canaries and whether the position had improved from Astra 2E.The european ones, yes.
Quick update.Ahh I see... Ok just the European beam then. I would be interested in what the final conclusion was in regard to the UK spot - whether it is fully receivable on 2.7 or 2.4m dishes in the Eastern Canaries and whether the position had improved from Astra 2E.
I think Fringe is saying some then, with his 2.7? Anyone pulled it in with a 2.4?
