**********HAVE A HAPPY , HEALTHY AND PRODUCTIVE NEW YEAR ************

---------- ENGLISH  VERSION  ---------------------

* Astra 1G has started test transmitions , all in digital format of course and in frequencies
varying from 12,500 to 12,750 Mhz. As you can see on the map
( http://www.sat-net.com/greeksat/maps/astra1g.gif ),most of Greece is still left out of the beam
pattern , but since the new satellite carries stronger transponders than the older Astra birds ,
smaller dish sizes will be required , ranging from 1 to 2.4 m . Of course , digital reception
requires clear signal as there is no "snow" in a weak signal, like in analogue . The picture is
either there or it's not.

* Ant 1 TV denied rumors that there will be a change of satellites ( as mentioned in the previous
message) in its transmission to America.

* Another channel shifts to digital. This time, Slovak VTV on Intelsat 707 at 1W will change format
from PAL to MPEG -2 on Jan 5th. I think that someone is trying to tell me " It's time to empty your
wallet and buy this digital receiver you dream of ".

* A test card appeared on Astra 1B , 11.686 V ( where the Astra demo video played ) announcing that
a new German channel , BR Alpha , will start on Jan 7th.
