I get most TP's from E7WA here in West Yorkshire on a 1m, just a few of the 8PSK TP's that I can't lock. Nothing of course from Nilesat 201, that would need something gigantic! If you want a test, try the Amos Satellites at 4W, I can get a handful of TP's but they are marginal at best!
I noticed this one at the weekend (I did send it in to Flysat but he's behind with updates ATM). It is a strange one, most of it is just null packets but scans as a VOD service. Maybe just testing? One to watch!
Just for the record, here's a scan of the radio stations on 8W, just to prove they exist there! There is another sandwiched in between 12621-12622 (Tendance Ouest, SR 144 FEC 2/3) but I can only see it with IQMonitor, can't get CrazyScan to lock it!
There is an MBC package on Hotbird 13E, 11258H, but you'll need an official card for this, or there are a couple of channels dotted around on Eutelsat 21B (21.6E) using BISS encryption, which are easy enough to get.
You just enter the freq, sr/fec and multi 0 as you would with any other multistream channel, and it scans in an unnamed service, which then gives the garbled screen images shown here. Although I used to use the TBS5925 and it's not very good with these type of streams. I'm now using the 6903...
There's more than just 2 channels on there too, as well as RTL 4 & NPO 1, I've managed to make out an RTL 5 & Discovery logo, and possibly a couple more that I can't quite make out. All appear to be on the same VPID.
It's not signal strength that's the problem, it's because the stream type is continous (not transport), most equipment can only make out extremely blocky images from this stream type. I can see it myself, from the bits of audio I can make out it definitely sounds dutch, and I can make out a...
