Looks like the remaining PE footprint C4 Ireland and Box TV channels are migrating to TP31 which is on a UK spot according to the field strength measurements and a contiental report I've just received.

C/N 15.1dB here in the UK for 12.304H very similar to that of the C and D band UK spots, maybe a FEC change is on the cards after migration?

This will also allow the remaining FTV channels on this TP to go FTA too.

Indeed so, just surprised it's taken C4 this long, especially when 4Music was released from it's pay contract not far off three years ago.

Are you in Finland at the mo, can you get signal lock on the new TP?
I'm in the UK at the moment, but will be over there soon. The old Channel 4 transponder (12480V) was interesting as it was one of the strongest in Lapland, could get it on an 85cm dish there yet in Helsinki I was struggling to get it on a 1.8m at times!

Cheers Timo, will be interesting how well it comes in. This TP seems stronger than the UKTV one (TP29) which gave 13.7dB C/N, this is giving 15.3dB, more akin to the BBC's RB TP back last summer in the same band. I guess UKTV have saved money by SES reducing the EiRP of their UK spot.

Interesting figures, quite a difference there. I suspect you don't get receiver lock at 4.7dB C/N?

Does C4 Ireland open on UK registered FTV cards as seen conflicting reports that only Eire ones open it.

It's a uk for sure, & too strong here to be 2F, at time of writing looks like 2E behavior.

It certainly used to work on a UK ex-sub card for me, not got any true FreesatFromSky FTV cards though so can't confirm that.

Very weak at my place. By far the weakest TP of all on 2E/F/G. Only about 8,4 dB right now. Probably will be even weaker during the evening. Was around 9 dB earlier today.
