A friend of mine is married to a girl from Lithuania.
I was wondering if there are any Lithuanian or Russian tv channels available FTA that could be received on an 80cm dish in Ireland ?
Any tips appreciated.

LTV is OK down here on a 1.2M. It would be easier to receive as you go north and east, but an 80cm might still be a bit of a struggle.

Many of the Russian channels on that link are difficult/impossible on an 80cm - anything on C-band, east of 60E or transmitted in MPEG4 requiring a HD receiver. The ones on Hotbird are OK. Those on 53E Express AM22 are also OK although some receivers (e.g Technomates) choke on the high symbol rate.

Cheers Zaphod,very informative.
Looks like LTV is a no go so as the location is in Cork.
Will give Hotbird a go though.

I can't can't 53E here but on 5E (1.1m dish).

Though my own house might be blocking LOS? 42E is fine.

Lots of stuff on 5 and 13, which are easily received here. She should ask members of her own community etc. Any I know are well clued in as to what's available. The Russian national broadcaster is in the clear for example.

Ltv world has recently appeared on 12.380 H 27500 3/4 on the europe bss beam on sirius so should be an easy enough catch on an 80cm in most of ireland.
