Re: German TV in N.-Carolina

>City: Wilmington nc
>Questions: I am located on the east coast of the USA.  North Carolina to be
exact.  I used to live in Germany and would like to be able to receive ARD /
ZDF / RTL / SAT1 / etc.  Is this possible?  Will it require C band / Ku / or
possibly even D-box?  I already have a MultiSystem tv.  Are any of these
channels on sats that I can reach from the US?

Sorry, at this time DEUTSCHE WELLE TV and Radio is the only service from
Germany available in the US. Turn your dish (starting with 130cm and up) to
INTELSAT K at 21.5 degr. west. Frequency: 11.605 GHz, horizontal, Audio:
5.94/6.12 (stereo). DW-Radio: 7.38/7.56 (stereo). TV is in NTSC-M.
If you do not have a Ku-band dish, but a larger one (2m and up) forthe c
-band you can receive DW-TV also via the SATCOM C-4 at 135 degr. (3.800 GHz,
vertical, audio 5.94/6.12 (stereo).
I believe very strongly that in due time - caused by the lower costs for
digital transmissions - more european tv will cross the Atlantic. Even
drdish@tv tries very hard to get some satellite time on a satellite directed
to Canada and the USA. At this moment the show is only seen (partly) in
cable households in Cincinetti, I am told.
