Hi again all,

I was watching 'Police Interceptors' last night on '5*Star' when (at around 11.20pm) the picture started to break up... then disappeared altogether... and I wondered if this could be another opportunity to receive some French Freeview channels... so I did a full re-scan of Freeview... and what do you think appeared on the new downloaded channel list...? ...no less than 12 French Freeview channels... amazing...!!

The channels had downloaded from UHF Channel 34 (578000kHz) and UHF Channel 35 (586000kHz) and were viewable for about half-an-hour... the channels were...

Direct 8
BFM TV
I>TELE
DirectStar
Gulli
France 4
France 2
France 5
France 0
LCP
France 3
Normandie TV


Did anyone else get these channels last night...?

I have attached a zip file below... there are too many pictures to post them as visible thumbnails...

Best Wishes,
Zorch

Maybe start thinking of setting up stacked antennas high on the roof with motor? this is very interesting indeed....

This is my crib sheet of the higher powered north Coast transmitters, most, apart from Paris appear as soon as the sun comes out. Caen is almost on demand apart from the HD MUX which takes a bit more but looks great when it's in, watched much of last years TDF in HD which was stunning. All these are on a 30 year old 4 element BB grid pointing due south.

Attached as a text file to stop the formatting going to pieces.
