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.
Sometimes it might help to use search: http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2055050430&highlight=Lithuanian
Lay off M8.
I did use search and had read that thread.
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.
Well there is always Russia Today.... Not in Russian, but all about it...
EuroBird 1 (28.5E) - 11623.00 - H - 27500 2/3
Isnt there not a load of Ukraine/Russian channels on 5 east.Encoded and unencoded.Granted where i am(next door to there) beam is v strong, but dosent it spill as far as Ireland?
4west is good but thats a 4m dish i expect over there.
And that Russian Channel1 on hotbird.
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.
You can get Russia today a FTA news channel on Sky channel 516.
If someone knows where to buy once off Satellite and receiver for Russian channels, please please please .. let me know. All i know that prices very from 129 eur to 200eur in Dublin.
