Re: New group - and some question

David,

true enough, for us lucky ones that live in the footprint of Hotbird. I have good result with a 40cm dish (when it's not windy or rainy!)

The C-band setup is definitely much more expensive that the Ku-band one. But again, since most stations are here in Europe, that's a good way to feed the data.

Regarding future DVB data streams, I have no doubts it's going to be like this for a long long while, there will be enough bitching about changing the dish from the old Met7 to the new setup, and by the time we will get the new MSG birds maybe everything will be on the Internet...

Bye, Luca

should all thank that power amplifier that failed!
