Nice installation. Shame to use an LNBf on this dish. Bit of an overkill for a downlink of 49dBW though :D

Interesting aspect to the hobby, keeping an eye on News Feeds.

Do you actually get to learn much that doesn't appear in short order on the News Channels proper?

I imagine there are lots of "bloopers" and so on during the preparatory phases?

Very nice indeed.

P.S.: It 's so low the signal from Spot2 of 31,5W ,that you need such a big dish ?:eek:

Hi Tivù,you do get some good stuff on news feeds,and yes a few bloopers too.And on 11606 V ITN Newsnet there is a live camera shot,of the ITN newsroom which is on all day.

Nicely done John ..
Most impressive

You know how it is ...I saw your post and had to swing my TD110 over to 31.5w to take a look at this inclined bird ..
No probs getting a snapshot of 11606v
Signal very strong here.
Can you list any other feeds worth taking a look at ?

@John896

Nice setup.

@Vipersan

It's very strong in the UK, according to footprint about 51dBW which equals a 60cm dish.

Could it be that the house partially blocks the signal for John? i saw the picture but don't know the elevation angle in UK for it, if you can get it with a Triax TDA110 he should have received it with a CM 120cm

The only other option I can imagine ..is that the elevation is set for what would have been correct _if_ the bird was _not_ inclined ..say correct for hispasat ..
Then the larger dish being a tighter beam would be less accurately aligned at 31.5 deg..

If the dish was aligned on Intel 801 using a meter ..then this would not apply of course..
just a thought..

Looking for a freq to lock on to. On 11606 3400 V getting nothing ATM. Any help thanks.

Are these 4:2:2 exclusive feeds?

John896 and Vipersan what receiver are you using?

I suspect the feeds are indeed 4:2:2 for the most part ..
I had to move to my pci sat card /progdvb & elecard codec to resolve an image on 11606V

Thanks re 4:2:2

Am I right in saying that 11606 v 3400 is running all the time?

Hi GreenmanBelg,11606 v 3400 runs from 9am-7pm (GMT) seven days a week.And sometimes all night,if there is a big breaking news story.

You should put up a EGIS motor on that 2.4m,.

Hi John,
Locked on this morning to the signal but I see a few pixels.

What receiver are you using John?
