What are folks experiences with receiving the new Serbian packet on 11011V 8150 3/4. Over on DS, many folks are having loads of problems with it, and as far as I can tell, signal strength is dreadful. Whilst I can get the some of the feeds and the Bulgarian channels at 60-80+% strength and quality, this one is awful. Barely touching 30% at very best, and it disappears whenever it clouds over.

Do we have any members in the Serbia area? - if so what are your experiences with it?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The chances are that most people in this part of Europe are going to be affected by the proximity of Astra 1 and the Phoenix (analogue 36?) transponder at 11009V.

A bigger dish will cure it, but not because of the transponder signal strength

Ahah - I hadnt taken into consideration that 19E could be interfering. Yes that sounds a sensible theory.

Hi chaps

I've just carried out a detailed scan of analogue frequencies 25mHz either side of 11014mHz in 1mHz steps and both polarities ie 10989-11039mHz on 16*east.
On my set up, I have found no analogue bleed over from adjacent birds whatsoever.

JuMbuCk:)

And a Macedonian package has started in the past 24 hours a bit further up on the same satellite

This could be an interesting orbital slot (again) in the next few months.

The serbs are now reported on on 11018 V 10850 3/4 as well, so it looks like Eutel have realised theres a problem

(Eutelsat - if you are reading this - how about the Hottie 7A launch on 28.5E Eurobird 1 for the UK viewers????)
