Some years back, I used to have this 24’’ Chinese TV going by the name Aucma.At times when tuned to NTV, I would suddenly start hearing police communication. I tried asking my neighbors but no one else was having the same problem.
I soon started ignoring the police communication and change channels whenever they started. After all, there’s is no time I caught anything interesting, it was mostly about traffic and instructions to juniors.

Aerial yako?

Used to watch Sky News in the early to mid 2000s in Nyeri using a normal UHF aerial.

In my high school days, I once came across police communications too with a home made FM/SW aerial. I solved it by shifting the aerial location.

At the time, we used fluorescent tubes to improve reception, amongst other contraptions. Worked like ‘magic’.

reflection of satellite beams.

I want to get FTA with Strong decoder. I want movies, cartoon, good documentaries. I intend to get a 130cm offset dish with twin LNB (Samson or the other quad one)… that is the far that I have gone with the education I have got here. I live in a rented house so BUD is not so possible at the moment plus budget constraints… I am getting the 4950H asap but the rest am not so sure how to go about it. am getting lacks stations elsewhere so I just need the rest. @Luther and the other gurus, kindly assist

local* stations

so iyo mambo ya sky news whatwas the cause?kwanza it was clear AF

Sikuwahi jua. I just enjoyed the broadcasts.

Presently, most of the good stuff is on C-band for which a pf dish is highly recommended e.g IS-20, IS 10-02, IS-906, A-7, etc.

thanks for that @Luther. I will go check the prices of those and see what’s possible for now.

if I may ask, when the good stuff ceases on C band, do we. now new stuff or just realign the dish?

i once caught police communication in the car radio on am frequency. i was shocked.
some operation in rongai. but that was around 1999.

Simply realign and/or change the LNB. The pf dish can be used for both C- & Ku-band as is. An offset dish would require a conical scalar ring (bought separately and locally only available at chinabuy.co.ke) to adapt it for C-band reception.
