Anyone know if the SKY TV UK FTA is still at 28.2E. Also, the direction for SKY.IT satellite.Thanks,
have a look at www.dishpointer.com which gives all the popular sats for Italy (see below) and also tells you where to point your dish from your house complete with skew.
1. 13E EUTELSAT HOT BIRD 13A | EUTELSAT HOT BIRD 13B | EUTELSAT HOT BIRD 13C
2. 19.2E ASTRA 1H | ASTRA 1KR | ASTRA 1L | ASTRA 1M | ASTRA 2C
3. 10E EUTELSAT 10A
4. 9E EUTELSAT 9A | EUTELSAT KA-SAT 9A
5. 16E EUTELSAT 16A
Thanks, had previously checked Dishpointer however no mention of 28.2 so am assuming it has moved or been discontinued since, according to Hoyle, the SKY UK signal is not supposed to be accessible outside the UK although we subscribed (through a UK address) for some 15 years here and in Austria. When we switched to SKY.IT we continued on SKY FTA also, however returning after six months we cannot receive the signal here any longer.
... just been looking at http://robssatellitetv.webs.com/ where there is all the info and lots of interesting chat on the forum. It seems that 28.5E position will be back up in July. After that, as now, it all comes down to your location and the footprint of the satellite. I know folks here in Umbria still get FTA TV with circa 1m dishes. The forum chat implied that equipment made a big difference - specifically Opticom lnb's - and Humax receivers.
Thanks for the info. This AM realigned dish and was able to receive FTA again at 28E, so either I was out of alignment or July came early.
Glad to hear you are sitting comfortably etc. To complete the story please could you say what dish etc you get this on and where you are located. Thanks
Thanks again for your input. We have a 90cm dish and are in Lunigiana about 15 KM east of Aulla.
Our signal is a little weaker than previously, however most FTA channels come in clearly.
