Astra 2 Reception Overseas

astra2efg-ukspotAstra 2 reception overseas can be problematic at certain times during the day.
There can be many factors involved in the loss or deterioration of signal levels and quality.
At all times SD transponders were virtually unaffected by the weather, only the heaviest downpours gave temporary reception problems, something that can easily happen in the UK under the same weather conditions.

Please remember that observations are made outside and east of the UK spotbeam, those living north, south or west of the beam, may encounter very different reception patterns.
During the tests, comparisons are also made to SD transponder on Astra 2E and to reception of the Astra 2F satellite (no reception issues).
Please remember that these are local observations, signal levels from the various transponder may vary at your location.
For a guide to dish sizes, see the Astra 2 Reception Reports Map


Signal Tests

The Astra 2 website has carried out reception tests on two of the weaker PSB transponder on Astra 2:

Transponder 41 (Channel 4) 10.714 Horizontal
SR: 22000
FEC: 5/6
DVB-S MPEG-2

Transponder 50 (BBC DSAT4)
10.847 Vertical
SR: 23000
FEC 2/3
DVB-S2 MPEG-4 8PSK


Equipment

Receiver: Humax FOXSAT-HDR (Low threshold – good for fringe reception): Normal reception of DSAT8, has signal levels of S 90%, Q 70%
Receiver: SMART Joy HD (High threshold – not recommended for fringe reception), on a long cable run and DiSEqC. This receiver quickly displays drops in signal.
Receiver: TBS 8922 DVB-S/S2 tuner using CrazyScan, EBS Pro, ProgFinder. (Used for signal analysis).
Dish: Gibertini OP150
LNB: Invacom Quad with ChannelMaster feedhorn.
Location: Rødovre (Copenhagen), Denmark.


bbc one hd-10-03-14Transponder 50 (BBC DSAT4)

Tests carried out by the Astra 2 Website, clearly show that DSAT4 is by far the weakest BBC transponder on Astra 2E’s UK Spotbeam.
So besides having to receive the weak signals from Astra 2E’s UK spotbeam, there is the added problem of trying to receive the weakest of the weak.
Unfortunately, this transponder contains the HD versions of BBC One (England), BBC One Northern Ireland, BBC Two, BBC Three and CBBC, so it is a very important frequency for most.
At times when reception of DSAT4 was lost, the SD versions of these channels had perfect reception, so viewing of the BBC was possible at all times.

Viewers trying to re-align their dishes for Astra 2E overseas, should first look for the satellite’s SD channels, these are far stronger than the BBC HD transponder.
To receive DSAT4, viewers may need to upgrade their dish, DSAT4 needs to be spot on, a fraction out and reception will be limited or not be possible.
Transponder 50 is affected even by light rain at certain times during the day, while SD transponders on Astra 2E, along with Astra 2F are unaffected even in heavier downpours.
Remember, there are other HD versions of BBC One available on Astra 2F, these are BBC One Scotland and BBC One Wales, most programming is ‘National BBC One’.

Reception is perfect on all receivers in dry weather, though signals can be affected by heavy cloud cover. Rain can seriously affect reception.
Reception would be lost at this time, if the dish was incorrectly aligned for optimal signal from DSAT4.
Very careful tweaking of the dish and LNB skew has produced some excellent results, permitting uninterrupted reception of DSAT4 during the entire day.
SD transponders were unaffected on Astra 2E, Astra 2F reception perfect 24/7.
