For anybody searching for 4.8E Ka, if as last week, this TP will be active for hours and hours and is good strength.

.... Wonder why they have gone with that aspect ratio Llew

Yes, good time to check for consistency of signal.

Haven't checked the picture aspect, I've stretched it somewhat to cut off the black level area to the right in 4T2.

That's better. It reports 16:9.

Tagged as Bangui. That's the capital of the Central African Republic, so presumably the source of the feed.

Terrible quality transmission, although video bitrate seems reasonable. Not sure of its source - Vohemar mentioned, so probably Madagascar.

Back up again ...

* I'm seeing a low level signal activity at 21.701 from the 1.2 Gibby, I'll swing the 1.8 on to it and have another look.

Didn't notice the Madagascar details you had before I queried its source, apologies.

I have a small hump in the spectrum at that frequency John, but not enough for any intelligable signal though with the 1.2 dish.

21.551 just dropped again Llew, that other frequency activity now looks like data along side another one. Hadn't noticed them before. Vid to follow.

Nothing there for me John. Just an undefined spread of noise at 21250 (may be a local issue).

Thanks for looking Llew, is that the Horizontal scan Llew , the signal i'm seeing is on Vertical and definitely drops when i go either side of 4.8° or up and down on declination. Chris (scopus) can perhaps have a look as well on his 1.8 / Inverto
