[background=rgb(250, 250, 250)]The most difficult satellite for me to catch the last few years has been Intelsat 901 at 18 West. I decided to try an Atlantic satellite scan with my new Linkbox 8000HD receiver and bang the most well known transponder scanned in. I came up with an African channel called Niamey from Niger:[/background]

hi - nice one - Costactc

The channel name "[background=rgb(250, 250, 250)]Niamey" caught my attention ----- as i picked up this channel a couple of weeks ago but i was seeing it on -- 50 west 4016 H -- on one of the A.I.T . feed frequencies but only for one evening ---- i,m seeing it ok here tonight on 18 west with your details ------[/background]
