FREE Satellite List Update September 1, 2021

FREE Satellite List Update September 1, 2021

Latest Satellite / Transponder list was released on September 1st, 2021.
This list is a 'must have' for installers using older DVB-S meters. Use this list to easily look up the DVB-S transponders on any satellite. It is a good idea to check at least two transponders since many transponders are moving to DVB-S2.

You will notice that DVB-S is loosing ground fast now. If you are using a old satellite meter you might consider upgrading to a DVB-S2 satellite meter.

Please donate to keep this list FREE and available.

Wild Feeds and Backhauls information

Wild Feeds and Backhauls

Ever wonder whats on those satellites that you don't know about?

There is a whole group of folks scanning the skys and reporting their findings in the same place. They don't do it for money for fame... they do it for the love of 'Free to Air Satellite Channels' and whatever their passion is. Some are looking for that big game of football or baseball or soccer, others are racing fans. All with the same goal in mind, watching that event live from their satellite feed. Not only do they watch the event but they tune in to interesting things not shown on the public feed.

There are all kinds of shows and events on satellite that we normally would not know about. If you have a interest in this join the hobbyists that know how to scan the skys for the shows and events.

Loading meters with older meter software...

Need a way to load that old meter?

Do you have a older meter that requires a older Windows that you don't have? Or maybe you are a Linux user (like me) and you don't have Windows at all.

What do you do when you want to program or update that old meter? It's getting harder and harder to find older computers with older Windows OS. It seems Window XP always worked the best for updating meters and even for updating the TP lists. I actually keep a very old Windows XP machine for that very purpose.

I've been following ReactOS and it's getting to a point where it should be very capable of solving these 'old meter' problems.

FREE cloud storage

FREE Cloud Storage for Linux

There is lots of FREE cloud storage available.

I write this mainly for Linux users however most cloud storage services are cross platform so they do work for Windows as well.

The “CLOUD” is pretty cool. You can store files there and access them from any computer regardless of where you are. As long as you have internet access you will have access to those files.

The “CLOUD” is big business. Of course companies sell storage. But for me and for most businesses you need access to only a few files. There is really no need to pay for storage.

Not everyone pays for cloud storage. There are several options available for free storage. Some even offer 50GB free. Most cloud storage services will also have a mobile app.

With a little bit of ingenuity you can probably have all the storage you need for free. So, how do you find it? I have compiled a list of cloud storage services here. Feel free to check out any or all of them and decide if they can work for you. As some of you know, we publish a monthly Worldwide Satellite/Transponder list. We use BOX and MEGA for our cloud storage needs.

FREE storage is great, but remember you are putting your stuff on the cloud. In todays hackable world you might consider the security issues we read about every day.

I stopped using cloud storage for sensitive files a long time ago because of the security risks. I now use Syncthing. “Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it’s transmitted over the Internet.”

Syncthing is easy to set up and works great. I used a old laptop with Linux OS and Syncthing. Now I have my files on any computer I use where ever I happen to be. Storage size is only limited by the hard drive size. Best of all, it’s all FREE!

ClipIt lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager

Need to copy and paste different things several times?

Clipit is the answer!

Have you ever used copy (Ctl+C) and paste (Ctl+V) for several different pieces of information that you want to re-use in different places?

If you are a Ubuntu type Linux user Clipit makes it easy.

Clipit clipboard manager

Clipit simply keeps track of what you copied and provides a list that allows you to click on any item making it ready for you to paste it where you want it.

I really like this little clipboard manager and use it on a daily basis. It also has several settings that allow you to make it work the way you want it to work.

Note: ClipIt is a lightweight GTK+ clipboard manager. Clipit is for Linux users.

You can compile and install Clipit yourself (instructions) or use their PPA.
Installation is easy with this handy PPA for Ubuntu type systems:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:afelinczak/ppa
