Due to some satellite changes, some UK channels will be moving to a temporary transponder / frequency from September 30.

They will them move again on October 4 to the final destination transponder / frequency and satellite.

For RT-UK SD (Russia Today UK) , this means:

Sky users, and Freesat box users should see the changes handled automatically by set-top boxes, with no viewer action required.

(Although some Freesat boxes may not do this until their “midnight” housekeeping, so performing a Freesat scan should make the channels on their new frequencies available earlier)

However, people with generic Free-to-Air satellite receivers will have to do a rescan at each transponder change.

RT-UK SD (Russia Today) : Frequency changes:

Until September 30: Broadcasting as now on Eutelsat 28A, 11.623 Horizontal. Symbol Rate 27500; FEC 2/3. (txp D9S)

From September 30 to October 10: Broadcasting on Astra 1N, 12.401 Vertical. Symbol Rate 27500; FEC 2/3. (txp 36)

From October 4 onward: Broadcasting on Astra 2F, 12.610 Vertical. Symbol Rate 22000; FEC 5/6. (txp G8) [NB. Change to Symbol Rate and FEC]

    • Hi
      A satellite box will automatically tune to the correct frequency / transponder depending which channel you have selected to watch.
      eg channel “a” will be on frequency 1 on transponder 1.
      channel “b” will be on frequency 2 on transponder 2.
      etc

      you cannot set to look for channel “a” on transponder 2, as it is not on that transponder.

      The main issue is that your dish is too small to receive the signals where you are.
      You are far away from the signals main area of service. The further away that area you go , the larger the dish you will require.
