Transatlantic tv

Post by tvdxrools » 30 Jun 2016 08:04

first transatlantic opening of the season which started at 1600 and went to A4 , A2 was just a mess with stations mixing but i didn't capture much as it was all weak and fluttery video but the audio was not bad at times , hopefully a good sign of things to come , cheers David

Excellent! I assume you are talking about June 29th? Any idea roughly were the signal were from? Are we talking North, Central or South America?

i would assume the Caribbean area and there were atleast 5 or 6 carriers showing 60 hz and some Spanish audio , glad to see quite a few still on cheers David , ps a 20 min opening yesterday but it didn't produce vid or audio and dont be fooled by the lack of props the opening yesterday came from nothing with no indication

Thanks David, good to know there are still stations around to receive, I will keep a look out on the A channels just in case. Its about 25 years since I last had TA sp-e on B, I only have a dipole but you never know!
