And now the news:

---------- Der Wetterkanal or Südwest 3?

Yes, Sat-UK is still alive - there's just been virtually no interesting
news recently. Anyway, take a look at this: Much speculation has been
flying around up till now about which channel will take over from
Phoenix on Astra 1D, transponder 61. Not long ago, Sat-UK reported that
this frequency would be occupied by Der Wetterkanal. Well, about 50% of
the rumours say this. The other half say that Südwest 3 will begin here,
then procede to diverge from the current SW3 and form a new regional
channel. SATCO DX has recently confirmed this, and has also stated that
the same will happen on transponder 57 (currently Sky News digital
tests). There is no clear answer yet, but don't worry - Sat-UK will
bring you the news when it breaks! (Geez, doesn't that sound corny?)
