Nelson's Local TV

DW on Mainland channel 2


DW on Mainland TV Channel 2 comes off the Asiasat 7 satellite which is over the Indian Ocean


It is only a few degrees above the horizon in Nelson so when there is rain clouds over or near Mount Arthur the rain density

at such a low angle attenuates the DW signal


Every time this happens you may see the picture break up followed by a "NO SIGNAL MESSAGE"


We some times run programming from our studio when this happens.


We could fix it with a bigger satellite dish which we have in storage but the Council will not permit it.


We run it as is and apologise for the interruptions at times.
