Well, MUCH thanks to an unnamed satellite hobbyist, who gave me an old KLM Sky Eye X analog receiver. This receiver is OLD SCHOOL. Two radio dials. One for Video, one for Audio - Way too cool. I dialed my way to my first Analog signal since 1997.

:happydance

And the PQ kicks ass don't it? :D

In that posted pic, yes. On my own analog receiver, an occasional sparklie. Maybe I need to fine tune the frequency and bandwidth, etc. to shake out the last sparklie.

I still prefer digital - if all's going right, it's as clear and vibrant and sharp on my monitor as it is in the uplink truck or facility.

BTW, i love that screen grab - a health insurance act committee hearing and the guy in the right-side background is wearing a paranoia mask! ;)

Yea, well, it looks like the guy to his left is plugging his nose, so maybe there is a theme in play. :confused:

What time? and Horizontal or Vertical?

about 10;59pm ET. right before local news on the east coast. Polarity with analog doesn't really matter unless you have digital receiver controlling the analog. It's vertical tr 23 - 4160 MHz in the digital world.

Hmm, that's usually past my bed time. But, i might tune it in 'just because'. So, it would be on tonight? right? Yea, i use my Digital receiver to turn to the satellite and then through the loop, i can Grab Analog and DCII signals.
