On txpr 11, 4.040 Ghz, H, this morning, car racing from the Suzuka
circuit in Japan. German commentary on 6.60 MHz, natural sound on 7.20
MHz, and on 8.28 MHz the station identification code. Quality of picture
and sound was poor.
The txpr 11 is lately used for the Doordarshan txm, identical with txm
on txpr 12, 4.034 GHz, V, in the early morning.

Zealand and Pakistan were on the field. English commentary was again

EUTELSAT II F2, 10 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/e2f2.html
NTV (Turkey) on txpr 20L, 10.987 GHz, H, started today their official
programming. Most of the the day classic news-reels about the founder of
modern Turkey "Ataturk" and his renowned works. I mixed up the txpr data
of NTV in yesterdays report, sorry.
On the TGRT SNG txpr 26L, 11.062 GHz, V, a live music txm from Turkey
was observed early evening. Quality, due to the shared use of the txpr,
not very good.
PAS 3R, 43 West, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/pas3r.html
An identical txm as on PAS 4 could be seen on 12.574 Ghz, V, also with
German commentary on 6.60 MHz, natural sound on 7.20 MHz, and on 8.28
MHz the station code. Quality of picture and sound was excellent.
Sorry, not much info today. I have been busy testing and manipulating my
Panasat IRD. I promised you the report, so I used the time normally
spend on news gathering.
