On the PAS2 Napa digital feeds 3940/1210Hz, 2/3, 6620 there are NBA (USA
Basketball) feeds regularly. The programming is usually either Turner (TBS
Superstation & TNT) or FOX. I don't have the schedule for the games FOX is
covering but here are the dates for the games being covered by TNT & TBS.

All date are the US date, so for Australian viewers the game is the day
following the date listed here. The games are broadcast live so the
broadcast time depends where in the USA the game is being played. A game on
the east coast would normally start around midday Sydney Summer time. The
broadcast usual begins about 30 minutes prior to the game. Highlights
normally follow the game.

For anyone who to be really scientific about it - the games start at 8PM in
the city they are being played. The second city in the list is the location
of the game eg: on the 13th of January Seattle and New York play in New York
at 8 PM. That means the game starts in Sydney time at midday on the 14th of

This Napa feed is used to send in the BBC Evening News bulletins during the
Sydney breakfast hours. Once the BBC programs are finished the Napa Candy
Bars go up with details of what time the NBA feed will start.

Well that is a nice bit of info to put under the fridge magnet with the
childrens paintings and calenders for last year.
Ok !!
Next a note from Patrick Middleton in Geelong who has been very industrious
as well.
I will post Patrics' email as it was received.
I also have put 2 attachments with the email as an experiment.
If they work or dont work please let me know as it would be nice to
occasionallysend pictures to illustrate a point.
So as I can sift through all the bits I have and get the ask-bevin segment
a t Dr. Dish up and running there will be a few short sat- aust's to keep
you informed. When I find out more I will let you know but there is a 2.27
upgrade for the Hyundai coming out shortly.
Cheers for the time being,
