SME Comment 1: Maybe one of the Australian readers has time to comment
on this message, did the reception of the Shopping Network 3.750 GHz, V,
decrease ? Are there any kind of interferences do to the little distance
in frequency ? What are the used audio subcarriers ? Quality of picture
& sound ?
SME Comment 2: on the new PANAMSAT internet pages (still under
construction) a nice overview chart can be found, take a look:
EXPRESS 2, 14 East, http://www.satcodx.com/e2.html
The tests on frequency 3.975 GHz, Rc, showed today a double transmission
of NTV. The channel was available until late afternoon in an identical
superior quality as seen on 4.075 GHz, Rc, receivable. It is yet unclear
if and when one of the channels whill be changed to new programming.
