The above bird is now inoperation offering Betacrypt channels with a fairly tight German footprint. Should be available in the SE UK with a 80/90cm but tails off very quickly the further West and North you are.

For Information Purposes here in southern part of Belgium the recieved signal is generally, when I checked the C/N Ratio on the vertical transponders, on my sat analyser around 0.7-0.8 db down from that from that of Astra 2a etc.
This is signifcant as I am directly located within the 52 DB footprint.
