It's not listed (yet?) on the BVN website. Let's hope it's here to stay.

BVN has just updated their website. .:)

www.bvn.tv/change%20

Now here's the kicker

They says they are sending on 113W* with new modulation scheme sending at freq, 12.040 GHz, H bitrate 3.540 MBs at FEC 1/2 yep 1/2!!:eeek

That's very rare to see FEC 1/2 and I am going to DX this baby and see what's happens next!

Stay tuned!:biggrin

No luck on that freq, 12.040 GHz, H bitrate, 3.540 MBs FEC 1/2.

No signal but all other signals are coming in fine...:)

4 possibly reason are due to...

1. I am out of footprints ranges.

2. FEC 1/2 much harder to get.

3. Not on the air yet.

4. Typos on the BVN's website or wrong information .:facepalm

An FEC of 1/2 should be much easier to get .... That means half of the signal is error correction.

It gets harder as the fraction gets larger. For example, ABC network feeds on C-band have an FEC of 9/10, which is why you get nothing, nudge the dish slightly and suddenly it's booming in. Much less margin for error on a signal like that.

NHK World (55W) has a similar generous error correction of 1/2 and as a result is easy to receive on under size dishes.

Predominately Dutch with Belgian and some German with subtitles in Dutch. Variety of programming. My cousin in The Netherlands would have to pay extra for this premium channel.
Usually when the programming is Belgian it has "een" written in the top corner ("one" in dutch, for VRT-1). I've seen stuff in French there too occasionally, and always with dutch subtitles in that case

The website seems a little confusing, or confused... At the top is a table showing the change they made earlier in the year, followed by the deadline for dropping the old parameters, then down the page out of nowhere they start talking about the 12040 frequency.

Well, on satellite in Europe BVN is FTA on 19E, and I believe also still on 13E.

However maybe for cable television or other distributors, it might not be in the basic (pay-)packages, I don't know.

BVN is compiled from the Dutch and Belgian public broadcasters: NOS and VRT. It's a similar set up to 3sat, which isn't available here but is a mixture of public TV from Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

It's also a great place to watch the Eurovision Song Contest, or Eurovisie Songfestival as they would say.
