    EBU radio feeds

    Perhaps checking during a live concert broadcasted by Euroradio could be a good idea. Sometimes it happens on Monday evening starting with Autumn season and during the Winter, or during special events like BBC Proms or La Scala theater opening on December 7th or Vienna New Year Concert and so...

    EBU radio feeds

    The signal at 11040H SR 1905 is active from years but I was never able to decode nothing. I believe it is some data stream not related with EBU. As I said, I can not test yet.

    EBU radio feeds

    Could anyone confirm all this? At the moment I'm not able to perform any test because I'm waiting for my new dish (just ordered a 2.4m). When the dish will be here, I can try with my TBS5925 PC card and maybe (not sure) I could have little chance to make some tests using an old RX8200, but I...

    EBU radio feeds

    Anyone has updated information about EBU radio (not TV) feeds? Are they broadcasted by satellite or fibre? I refer particularly to live classical music concerts, but also news and sports. Regarding classical music, there is an EBU service named Euroradio used to broadcast such live concerts from...

    suddenly all channels showing No Signal

    In this situation I think the best solution is calling a professional installer. He will point your dish easily, and you could look at him and learn from him how to do that so next time you will be able to solve similar issues on yourself.

    Upside down offset dish

    I ordered the Raven 2.4m offset dish with its inclined orbit Polar mount from SSS. You can see here: http://www.satellitesuperstore.co.uk/inclined_orbit_satellite_dish_240cm.htm#raven18io It is the 243 model I believe, but I have no idea about its weight (not shipping weight, just dish weight)...

    Upside down offset dish

    So, I'm waiting for the dish, and I must wait a little bit because it will be delivered in about one month (I hope). Obviously I asked for an RX-only setup, but I read that a RX/TX version of this dish is available, too. What about possible differences? I know about mechanical differences...

    Ka band???

    10.000 Euros.... really too much for such few trasmissions. I checked flysat, not interested in this band anymore. Thanks for your explanations. Just an additional question: how can a single LNB cover almost 4 GHz? Two Ka portions can be switched using 22KHz command, but as diseqc is not used in...

    Ka band???

    Yes I knew that Ka band is splitted in four parts (A to D I believe). So, reading your post I think that a unique LNB for all portions does not exist.... and different polarities (circular and linear) could be an additional problem, am I wrong? Finally, very few signal to invest in a specific...

    Ka band???

    Could you please explain better? What can I receive from 19.2°E, 16.0°E and 7.0°E here? I suspect only data, or are there any feeds or regular broadcasting? A 1.5m dish would not be a problem, a bigger issue could be to find a good LNB I'm afraid. But I'm not sure if I will begin any Ka band...

    Ka band???

    Yes Ozumo, you are right, no footprints aimed to my area. Apart of this, in your opinion, why we had much interest in the past and not anymore now? And in all areas, including UK where you had daily broadcasting like RTE channels? Do you think that broadcasters understood that Ka band is so...

    Ka band???

    Hello, this forum has an interesting Ka band section. However, after many readings, I suspect that Ka band is losing interest from many satellite enthusiasts, maybe due to TV signal lacking, isn't it? How many channels are broadcasted in this frequencies? And what about feeds? Feeds catching is...

    Is skewing adjustment really needed?

    Thank you for your replies, very interesting. I forgot to mention that I was speaking of Ku band only. I have no C band yet, had some years ago with an old Corotor, then I dropped it and I don't think I will reinstall it on my new dish, at least not in my first setup, maybe in the future. Also...

    Is skewing adjustment really needed?

    Hello, after many years of satellite reception, in my experience I always thought that a well done motorised system needs some kind of polarity adjustment. So, in my new system hoping to install before next winter I planned a motorised feed, see here...

    Upside down offset dish

    And finally the dish was ordered. I must wait some week to have it, hoping that it will be all OK.
