11669H 1000 South African national broadcaster SABC2 here (15W) with strong signal. On the other hand signal little bit non stabile and audio from 70´s?!?!

Regular programme but much from rugby world cup. Very nice to see SABC again, after many years (68.5E).

Nice find. Might have to have a go at getting that on a spare fixed dish if it is still there tomorrow.

Are you still watching SABC? Very bad signal jumping here and cannot say it is watchable anymore. Few seconds Ok with more than 12 dB then next couple of minutes no signal et cetera. Is it because of low symbol rate and obviously my TM F3/5 dont handle it well.

Having a look at it now Kveys, the signal is very erratic... looks like a problem with the uplink? It's showing rugby and tagged "Telemedia MCR" I think it may be a reverse feed for the RWC

Thanks @gibertini maybe this is a reason for SABC signal jumping -> another feed very near!? So this rugby London is different feed than South African bc 2. And yes, this rugby only feed is stabile.
