John Locker (our man for space-news) lives outside of Liverpool and has no
problems in receiving drdish@tv. I believe he uses a 120cm dish. Yesterday,
we had to move to transponder C2 (11.675, h) without warning. Could be this
the reason you did not see us?
All transponders on ASTRA 1D are gone and we need authorization from the
real owner of the txp. The same is with EUTELSAT. So, we are happy to got
our place on DFS with the help of TELE-satellite and the Deutsche Telekom
AG, but we are not sleeping and still looking around for a wider coverage
(2.txp.). Space-Night would be nice, but we would loose the live-show and
will never get 2 hours on the air.
