I assume we will be running the usual end of year Follow the Fireworks fun on the forum?

Usual routine, tune into Auckland midnight at 1100 UK time then work our way westwards across the time zones seeing what weird & wonderful celebrations we can find, no doubt a smattering of wrinkly rockers and an awful lot of fireworks!

For those of you that havent seen the format before the usual firework highlights are

Auckland
Sydney
Taipei
Pyongyang(!) - had an excellent display in 2016 & 2017
Dubai
Moscow
Berlin or one of the German cities
London

Channels are all almost all watched via FTA channels on 13E during the day, the Germans on 19E & a few news channels on 28E. There are always a few contributors chipping in with some of the other birds - eg the Ukrainians & Baltics on 5E and whatever other oddities we can find on the other birds across the European arc.

There is also the opportunity to watch the classic Dinner For One on 19E

Same procedure as every year?? :D

I'll close this for now & reopen it a few days before NYE

BTW - the first record I can find of Chasing Midnight here is way back in 2004, with annual occurences since 2007!

If any of the forum regulars are around NYE please drop by the thread & say hello. :)

remlap's predictions sheet is currently up for 2019

Chasing Midnight 2019


If you havent joined in with this before we start in Auckland at 1100UTC using Euronews or Sky News then hop west one timezone at a time. Once we get to around 2100UTC we start to get a good choice of channels so folk pick their favoured country each hour & report in after the clock strikes the local midnight & with what they have seen. Screengrabs & photos are always most welcome to give a flavour of what has occurred where. Something unexpected always happens somewhere which is half the fun. :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Give some thought later in the first day of 2019 for New Horizons, passing a lump - or more - of something that the last time it was in a similar position in the sky, Sir Christopher Wren was still alive.

28E BBC Alba. Looks like its the Gaelic opt out as Hogmanay Live on BBC Scotland starts at 23.10 as well.
Yes, but i can't see 28.2°E, because of UK beam.
This is why i am searching for main uplink.

I checked my feed archives and I recorded this feed in 2014 and it was uplinked to 24.5°W (10971 H 4800 2/3).
This year, try 24.5°W or 16°E.
Thanks for info.

Known frequencies i have:
2014:
Satellite Position : 24.5°w

Frequency:10971MHz
SymbolRate: 4800
Polarity : Horizontal
ID: UKI-23 P1


2016:
Satellite Position : 7°E

Frequency : 12546.048 MHz
SymbolRate : 5632

Polarity : Horizontal
ID: Hogmanay, Stirling



This is all i have found throughout the years.

Hi to all the regulars
Something I spotted today,a Turkish version of Dinner for one,to be shown on WDR at 4.20PM (GMT),called Döner for one (what else)
Not seen it before,so maybe another first alongside the UK screening of Dinner for one.
