That is a temporary service uplinked from the UK that will run Sat/Sun -
Mono audio 6.60 MHz stereo audio 7.02/7.20 MHz commentary audio [for
visually impaired] either 7.38 MHz or 7.56 MHz (I just forget which
As I understand it they are basically making use of the time set aside
to 'soak test' the UK uplink which will be used to carry [I think]
*either* NBC Europe *or* CNBC Europe [I suppose its more interesting
than colour bars and tone] ...
I believe the 'Satellite Fesitval' swings into action at 09:00 UTC

True, something would have to be moved - though I see from the MediaTel
WWW site that BskyB have put back the launch of their digital service
till the second quarter of the year ...

However I have seen reports that BskyB are testing in digital format via
Telecom 2D at 5 degrees west on 11.492 Ghz v (SR 27500, FEC 3/4).
Apparently they are currently reported to be carrying 14 programmes
(either 'empty' channels or encrypted services).
