Somebody was talking to me about this one recently. Apparently the motorway information station on 107.7 FM on the part of the French motorway network run by VINCI is satellite fed. There are dishes on the roadside transmitters that look to be pointing to somewhere around 30°E.

I guessed 33°E as a contender as France tends to favour Eutelsat birds for backhaul feeds, plus 33E is already used for terrestrial transmitter feeding in Bulgaria and Poland.

Just wondering if anyone who has Crazyscan or anything similar set up has noticed anything with a very low symbol rate on or around 33°E? Could of course be DVB-IP data like the Spanish and Portuguese stations on 30°W, I’m just curious.

Thanks!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

  • The transmitters along the ASF network receive the program by satellite, they can be subject to cuts in the event of extremely degraded weather.
  • For information, the transmitters are located in the green cabins at the foot of the pylons.

Those towers may be tied in to receive data from the GPS / Galileo birds, which would make sense considering they sway in the wind.

Avantech was playing with FM delivery of traffic management some years back (vio ?)
