Band i
Canadian Es event
Double hop Es on the 25th June 2007. Numerous carriers were heard with the highest recorded one being 83.259.945. A3 and A4 signals were the clearest with A2 a mess of CCI from about ten carriers. 1955UTC I had an A3 signal showing the Simpsons, soon after this there was a short promo announcing new series coming up in the fall on CBC The dominant signal this evening was the CJCN transmitter at Grand Falls, Newfoundland on A4. At 2005UTC up faded the game show "Wheel of Fortune" with Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Just before 2030z a series of different images and people were seen with captions below and then the NTV globe with stars rotating around it. 2030z was the highlight when  I caught the start of NTV Evening Newshour although was it announced as Newsline?  At 2013z the A6 video faded up although it only reached S3 on the scanner so no chance of seeing any video from it.

A big thanks to Mike Bugaj and Mike Smith for the NTV ID's.

This was the first capture from last night, Wheel of Fortune.


All of these images were in the run up to the 2030UTC NTV News, the last two accompanied the singing heard on the audio sample.
