Hello all,

According to Lyngsat, there is a new FTA music video channel on Telstar 12 @ 15West on a transponder that points to america, called TRACE TV. I saw this channel on a recent trip to Europe, it's a pretty cool channel from France that plays urban/hip hop videos mostly, if you're into that of course.. They just play the videos, no braindead veejays, reality show cra*p etc...

Being in Montreal (74W), my 36" motorized dish can normally see from 12W to 129W, but when the neighbors' tree grows leaves in the spring I lose line of sight from 12W to 20W... so I can't test it until november... arggh

I'm thinking of getting myself a 80cm fortecstar dish and just point to this sat from another area in my yard, but before I shell out some more $$, I would surely appreciate if someone from the Northeastern US or Canada that can see 15W can confirm that this channel is there, it's strength etc...

here's the info:

TRACE TV
Telstar 12 - 15W
11965
Horiz. polarity
sr 8131

thanks!! :) :)

Michel,

I can't confirm this right now, but give me a week or so. I have too many trees to motor to this location, and I'll have to move my dish to a better los. I've been interested in doing this for sometime anyway. There's a small ridge that might be an obstruction as well.
Sorry that I can't give an immediate answer.

Thanks Tim and Neal for your replies. Much appreciated. :up

It's strange that they would use that much bandwith for just audio, oh well... maybe they are still testing.

Neal, I'm surprised that you can see 15W from your location! :eek: Sure must be low over the horizon !! Or is your dish on a very very high pole ?? :D :D

Thanks again

Michel

I am currently in Philly with the truck. :) I went as far as Atlantic Bird 2 before my antenna controller software limit kicked in.

Thanks for the info, but unfortunately, subbing to dish network is not an option for us Canucks...! :( :(

Maybe Bell ExpressVu will start carrying it someday, apparently TraceTV has the go-ahead from the CRTC (Canada's FCC) to be broadcast by canadian distributors.

Tibeu,
Would you mind if I asked what your line of work is? Need an assistant? :)

Hi 123Tim,

I'm sure you meant to ask that question to NoStrings (Neal), not me. I'm not the one with the truck! hehe

regards,
Michel
