THE HEADLINES IN THIS 97.02.22 REPORT:
- GALS 1/2
- Mauretania on A2B
- Bit & Pieces
GALS 1/2, 36 East, http://www.satcodx.com/gals1.html
After being without signal in the early morning of 22/02: NTV+ "Mir
Kino" on 11.919 GHz, Rc, returned in the afternoon therefore very
strong, however still completely disguised in Nagravision.
ARABSAT 2B, 30.5 East, http://www.satcodx.com./a2b.html
A good old friend from Arabsat 1C, of which the most viewers remember
only the name, came back to the Arab TV world: Mauretania TV showed up
with regular transmissions on Arabsat 2B, transponder 9, 3.876 GHz, Rc,
with subcarriers on 6.60 MHz, for TV sound in Arabic, and a Radio
transmission on 7.02 MHz, in a, for me, yet undefined language.
The picture quality is acceptable, similar to that of the improved
Maroccan transmissions; the sound quality on 6.60 MHz is poor, for the
radio station on 7.02 quite good.
The on-screen logo, in the lower right, consists of a yellow star
between the legs of an, also yellow, Arabic halfmoon, on a round blue
base, with two green palm trees covering the left and right moon parts.
The yellow moon and star are part of the Mauretanian national flag.
Submitted questions and requests will be answered as soon as possible, I
have to keep it a little slow in order to recover from sickness faster.
Please have a little patience, in the moment.
