Dr.Dish: TELE-satellite magazine publishes on a regulary basis all known 
MPEG-frequencies. To find out which symbol-rate is used, look for the 
bandwidrh of the transponder. On a 33 MHz-transponder 27.5 Msym./s is normal 
and on a 26 MHz transponder it is 22 Msym/s. die FEC is usually 3/4 or 5/6. 
Since here you have the choice of only a handfull FECīs it is quite easy to 
find out the proper one.
