It was good while it lasted.

I haven't done TV DX for a few years. I loved to detect the carriers with my Icom PCR1000, fed through to SpectrumLab. Happy memories. Sadly now gone. :(

This is sad news but was expecting it and Glubokoye 49.757 was in with video a bit ago and 49.750 St Petersburg is in now at carrier level.
I do see these and Sovestk 49.739 with it's wobbly carrier daily but not seen any from UKR so presume they have gone off.
