Experimental BSB reception
A wave of publicity recently swept over the UK announcing the launch of the five-channel BSB TV-satellite. Everybody seems to have an opinion on this event, and pages of comment have been written on it, even in technical magazines, without proof of the availability of receive equipment. The bottlenecks are, as we learn from informed sources, the aerial and the D-MAC set-top decoder. Well, squarial or no squarial, Elektor Electronics is proud to be the first international electronics publication to present pictures of MAC transmissions received from BSB and other DB satellites. Rather than gazing into a crystal ball, we show you a glimpse of a multi-standard MAC decoder for home construction that is currently being designed.
