    One report indicates that the following transponder has now transferred from 1N to 2F. (signal lost in Italy)

    11024 H DVB-S2 8PSK 23000 2/3

    (Two BBC1-HD regional variants)

    First chance for ex-pats with a Foxsat-hdr to use manual tune to check sig strength/quality. (100/100 for me)

    Interested in what Repassac finds

    Is that better or worse than your existing BBC1-HD Freesat transponder ?

    Seen reports that signal lost in Italy, Canaries and Germany. Any readers from Iberia, seems to be OK in the Benelux countries (That should please the many Dutch viewers)

    ITV London for example is currently 100/100 so worse. Good Job I have planned to go to 1m from 80cm at the new place.

    One poster still OK in Valencia.

    See he used 11023 rather than 11024 - that is a bit better here - 100/80 constant.

    Why would that make any difference ?. Surely the tuner will just lock onto any carrier within spitting difference of the frequency specified.

    KOS has the freesat home transponder as 11426.

    Perhaps they are playing with the transponder settings.

    I think the difference must be due to checking at two different times. All three now give 70% with infrequent jumps to 80%.

    Weather related ?. Expecting some foul weather shortly here, gales already and heavy rain tracking in from the NW.
