R2 TV logo - ID help needed

Post by daveB » 22 Jun 2015 09:12

Some lovely clear pictures - someone discussing the history of symbols and talking about the Nazi swastika. The program logo was clear in the top right in Cyrillic characters. which transliterate into T? PERSHIY. The character that does not transliterate was an upside down V rather than a blocky B.

So what language / what station - as it's obviously someone's Channel 1. Offset was 59.2498 - this time I took a video! (smartphones rule OK :D )

Tnx David

Hi David shouldn't that be R2 on 59.25 anyway as I have been out of the TV loop for some years there was only one channel but now there's several so I have some videos for ID which I will post later DX permitting lol.

Absolutely right Andy - R2 But I meant the equivalent of someone's BBC1 or ITV1. I just reviewed a video of an earlier station and it looks like that one was Belarus 1

I have uploaded two UNID videos from 21/06/15 this was on CH R 3 and I think they could be the same station as late afternoon a boxing match and later a news program so any help would be good.

I don't know if this is the same as what David had but this station was also received on R2 on 22/06/15.

These videos has only been up a short time and someone has said for the first video.

The Ukrainian first channel (UA Перший).

A bit late coming back to this thread - but my first one translates as TV Pershiy - and it is Ukrainian - so the Kiev transmitter. I also received some pretty reasonable video on R1 - a contact I have, who was originally from Moldova/Moldavia immediately identified the writings as Russian and with a nice fat "1" logo centre screen after the adverts identifies it as TV 1 from Russia.

But I had two distinct carriers - measured at 47.7499 and later one at 49.7434 - so the first - against which I've logged the fair video at 0732 to 0745 UTC is going to be St Petersburg. The other is unidentified.
