Hi All,

All BBC National radio services launched on Sky digital this morning.
The t/ponder is 11.798 GHz horiz. At the moment these and the
commercial stations can be received also on free to air digital
receivers across Europe.

Capital Gold etc can be received on 12.326 GHz vert at 28 East.

Talking to Tony Blackburn this after noon from Cap.Gold he told me
that they will not launch officially until Monday, this could be
due to the contract with BSkyB and Capital's coverage of the Eng v
Scotland football match over the weekend which clashes with Sky's
coverage.

Hi,
Rather puzzelled by my reception of the BBC radio stations, they seem not to
be very good stereo, are they mono?
Also the volume level varies between stations.
Regards
