Still some analogue feeds are left on DFS-II, but at irregular times.
Another way would be to tune in UK-Gold (txp 23) on Astra, change from
horizontal to vertical and drive to 28.5° east. Usially we are with a test
pattern or something funny 10 minutes earlier on air. Time enough to adjust
video and audio. Yes, we will stay analogue!
