    Hi John, if you understand German, this site may confirm what I believe, that RTL will again carry FTA Formula 1 this year on Astra 1 at 19.2.

    Read on an Italian site that RTL Switzerland will NOT however be available on Hotbird as it was last year.
    Cheers, Derek.

    Glad I took your advice Steve.. 🙂 Even if I only ever watch F1 on 19.2 it was well worth the (very limited) expense..!!!

    ???….I don’t think it was my advice.?…..If i remember correctly it was “Rob’s” advice…..My suggestion was recieving both 28,2 & 19,2 satellite positions on your 100cm dish……..I think.?……

    Steve, it was initially YOU who said there was a lot of good stuff on 19.2° so I opened a thread called “Monoblock LNB to receive 19°E on existing Hotbird setup” This was my first post:

    “Seems I’m missing out on some good stuff judging by recent posts. As regulars will know, I am 55km NW of Milan and have a 100cm dish pointed at 28°E which I don’t want to touch (you know why!). I also have a 60cm dish with single LNB pointed at 13°E – according to Rob’s wise words, all I need to do is replace the existing LNB with a Monoblock and, hey presto, I also have Astra1. I have 2 questions to the experts out there – (1) Is a 60 cm dish sufficient in my location? From the coverage map on this site it seems YES. (2) What is the best Monoblock to use? Thanks in advance”.

    After a lot of help from you, Rob, Ben, Villa and others, decision day came:

    ” Steve, thanks for the time you are taking to help me. Got up early to check out positions with compass and fear that my line of sight to 19E is partially blocked by the wall to the side of dish (wall with printing in photo http://robssatellitetv.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=171238002 ). To overcome this problem, options are (1) move dish up pole but this would anyway require a longer pole as actual is only 50cm long. (2) move dish away from the that wall towards camera position. With this option, risk is to then block line of sight to 28E with a chimney stack. In addition, the small terrace would become totally unusable.
    There was speculation on this forum that my good signal could be due in part to the micro_environment, i.e. relative position of walls behind and to side of dish, small hill in front, etc – no technical validity for these arguements but you never know, for which reason I am reluctant to move the dish!
    If I go for an additional 80 cm dish on a longer pole, I can be sure to get the present 100cm dish back in exactly the same position to safeguard 2F/2E signal and have complete freedom to play with the 80cm. I can get an 80cm Fracarro (same brand as my 100cm) for 28 euro including shipping. So, for a safer and more simple life I feel that the additional dish is the best solution (and I have nobody else in the house to complain about the “eyesore”!)

    Thanks again Steve and I would welcome your feedback on my reasoning as I may well have missed something”

    Thought a little bit of recent history would be nice to remember Rob 🙂

    Hello Derek I do not know if you solved it, but I tell you that I bet on a 80 cm to 28.2 with a second lnb hooking all channels at 19.2 so I guess you with the 60 cm you should have no problems to connect with both satellites at 13 East and 19. maybe you can mount both lnb on secondary fire and adjust the dish to 16 east so as to have a good signal from both satellites.
    Greetings.

    Unfortunately it doesn’t show which stations are showing which races 🙁

    The BBC announced the 9 races they are showing live, but I have not found much info from RTL and Sport 1, I could only find info about the first race so far. Sport 1 seems to have all the practise and qualifying but maybe not the race, which is on RTL.

    I am trying to get a timetable together by looking on many websites and gathering info. I will post it up soon and maybe people can contribute info if they find any.

    Thank Derek, my dish is pointing to Astra 1 19.2 and receiving rtl television channel, so what I am planning to do is hopefully watch F1 on rtl live and listing to it on bbc radio 5 live

    It looks like that the German channel RTL is not showing the full formula 1 race on the Australian Grand Prix on the 16 march.

    John, My Google tranlator tells me that the full race will be broadcast live on RTL, starting at 7am on 16 March (7pm Melbourne time).

    Hi guys. I have started updating the old Free TV Formula 1 page. I have found out most details for the first race, although you obviously knew them anyway! But if anyone finds details for further races, it would be useful if this can be shared here and I will also add it to that page for people who land on this website via google and go straight to that page. http://robssatellitetv.com/freetvformula1.htm

    Thanks
