Would be nice to have it here too, but I guess some people out in the country
do use channel 11 for TV (and the neighbouring channel 10 would cop a heap of
overload in the cities!).

With today's technology it shouldn't be too hard.

We get a lot less than that here. :(

The current trend is towards less and less spectrum over here.  Auctions and
comercial interests are eating into the bands.

Anyway, let's get back to the satellites. :-)
