ITALIAN RADIO AND TV ==Q4.1= Can I get Italian TV or radio from far away? Last modified: June 15 1996 >From a posting by Carlo A E Rizzo <u9caer@ohm.york.ac.uk>: Most of you must have sometime tried to tune in to Italian radio or steered your parabola to a satellite and tried to figure out where you could get Italian TV from. What a pain trying to search through the short-wave band for the famous bird chirping signal that identifies RAI (Italian Radio and Television Network). Starting with radio we can say that RAI are not really interested in serving areas outside Italy; that's why it is difficult to pick up broadcasts from ITALY (they don't have any relay stations!) However, they have a national and overseas service mainly serving the Americas and the Far East. Europeans must rely on the Italian transmitters and the propagation conditions. Starting off with Europe strong signals come in just after the sun has made it behind the horizon. Radio Uno : 900KHz (MILAN 600KW transmitter) 1332KHz (ROME 300KW) Radio Due : 846KHz (ROME 540KW transmitter) Also on short-wave Radio Uno : 6060KHz (ROME 50KW) very weak but good at night after 01.00 AM. All transmissions merge in to one that starts at 23.30 hours (Italian Time) and terminate at 5.58 AM. A very strong signal can be picked up from Radio Luxembourg on 1440KHz (1Mw transmitter) where each day they relay the Italian NEWS (NOTIZIE ED INFORMAZIONI PER GLI ITALIANI ALL'ESTERO). winter schedule : 20.00-20.30 UTC summer schedule : 19.00-19.30 UTC Il programma prevede circa 1/4 ora di notizie e poi 1/4 ora di intrattenimento (generalmente musica) On a Monday lots of soccer results!! Any sort of radio will pick radio LUXEMBURG....believe me. Now overseas: the strongest signals depart from ROME on a Sunday afternoon at about 1.00 PM GMT on different frequencies serving quite a few places around the globe; that is the CALCIO MINUTO PER MINUTO Italian football. These are the frequencies (change every season so look out!): NORTH AMERICA 21475KHz CENTRAL EUROPE 9710KHz SOUTH AMERICA 21535KHz SOUTH AFRICA 21690KHz MIDDLE EAST 15520KHz The 21535KHz is always swamped by the VOA (ARAB SERVICE) which is a strong signal. It's better really to try all these frequencies to get satisfactory results. Lucky the users that have a digital radio with memories! Other transmission's depart from ROME at about 22.30 GMT to the AMERICA's on 11800KHz, 9710KHz, 11905KHz, 15245KHz until 3.00 AM. You get lot's of news and Italian music that is suddenly truncated to leave space to the Bird Chirping of RAI. For Canada 17800KHz and 21560KHz bring news and music every day exept Sundays. There are lots more transmissions that are broadcast at different times but difficult to pick up and very short in duration. There is no way you will be able to pick up Radio 1 (6060KHz) and Radio 2 (9515KHz) if you are outside Italy.. RAI is thinking about sending these signals up some satellite in the near future...but who knows when? Right TV now.....to users that posses a frying pan in their garden (PARABOLA's). EUTELSAT 2 F1 13 DEGREES EAST deliveres the following programs: RAIUNO :11366MHz Vertical Polarisation with RadioRAI1 and RadioRAI3 RAIDUE :11499MHz Vertical Polarisation with RadioRAI2 and RadioRAIInt'l RAIDUE :11531MHz Vertical Polarisation Mpeg Encoded: RAI INTERNATIONAL :11499MHz Vertical Polarisation RAI PACKET :11804MHz Horizontal Polarisation The footprint covers most of Europe and a 90cm dish will be sufficient up until Germany, England. Look ut for the Radio feeds coming soon on the sub-carriers. Programs are generally encripted but until now sport and news are free! Mr. Berlusconi now has a MPEG Packet on EUTELSAT 2 F1 13 DEGREES EAST: TELEPIU SATELLITE:12034 MHz Vertical Polarisation Mr. Cecchi Gori also has a MPEG Packet on EUTELSAT 2 F1 13 DEGREES EAST: TELEPIU PACKET :11958 MHz Vertical Polarisation The TV information I'm afraid, is only for North Africa and Europe viewers. A full list of satellites and frequencies including the Italian channels may be found at: http://www.sas.upenn.edu/African_Studies/Electronic/European_Satellite.html or: http://www.sat-net.com/sat-ger/frequenz.html (in German, sorry) The list is long and in continuous evolution so it may be different every month. I programmi RAI-America possono essere ricevuti attraverso il sistema EUROPLUS che include un'antenna parabolica (60 cm. diametro), un set-top decoder e telecomando. Le trasmissioni (sistema PAL necessario) vanno in onda dalle 3pm alle 11pm dal lunedi al sabato; dalle 8am alle 11pm la domenica. RAI-America trasmette 24 ore su 24 programmi radiofonici e televideo. Costo: circa $800. IntelsatK trasmette verso gli USA, ricevibile in California. In mpeg2 con 9.99 USD in piu` si vede anche Rai International. Some transmissions in RA are also available at http://www.rai.it ==Q4.2= Is there any Italian radio or TV station in XXX? Last modified: October 15 1995 Nancy Rains <rains@znet.com> writes: Regarding Italian TV. There is a channel called SCOLA, which is offered on some cable services through out the U.S. However, only a minority of cable services offer SCOLA. SCOLA shows the telegiornale every day, and it has a net address: scola@creighton.edu * Toronto: - - Telelatino channel 57 on cable in Toronto other channels elsewhere in Southern Ontario (6 hours per day of RAI, with full TG daily) - - Channel 47 Multilingual Television free off the air from Niagara Falls to Barrie (2 hours per day in Italian, 6 hours on Friday and Sunday Good news reports, including some clips from RAI) - - Channel 22 Global Television Network and Channel 11 CFTO Television both free off the air, broadcast 6-10 hours per week in Italian can be seen in most Central-Southern Ontario - - CHIN Radio AM 1540 KHz, FM 100.7 MHz (free off the air from Niagara Falls to Barrie - by Anik II satellite and cable elsewhere) (24 hours in Italian: 12-15 on AM; remaining part on FM Good news reports, including re-broadcast of RAI short-wave news) - - CIAO Radio CIAO radio out of Toronto broadcasts on a frequency of 530 KHz. * East Pennsylvania Per quel che riguarda programmi tv in italiano qui (east pennsylvania) sulla tv via cavo, canale 42 (abbastanza standard, cioe' quasi indipendente da quale compagnia ti fornisce il cavo), ci sono circa 3-4 ore di trasmissioni. Non sono sicuro perche' non sono mai a casa quando cominciano ma ti do per certo che l'ultima trasmissione e' il tg (solitamente tg1 ma da una paio di settimane trasmettono tg2) dalle 19.30 alle 20.00 (ora della costa east). La domenica invece le trasmissioni credo cominciano alle 8.00 di mattina con una partita del campionato di calcio in diretta, per finire alle 13.00 con un tg. * Miami - - BRAVO In alcune aree della citta', trasmette il tg2 alle 7pm. (ET) * Bay Area (California) Nella Bay Area (San Francisco) Da gennaio 1994, il canale 26 trasmette soltanto il telegiornale dal lunedi al venerdi dalle 1730 alle 1800. Una volta alla settimana, domenica dalle 5 di sera alle 6 (1700-1800). A canale 26, ADF (Amici dell'Italia Foundation) trasmette un programma di un'intervista (generalmente in inglese), un video breve in italiano, il telegiornale (TG2?), e TGS. Da luglio 1996, il canale 32 trasmette il telegiornale dal lunedi` al venerdi` dalle 1730 alle 1800. Per ora, il programma di ADF di domenica continua al canale 26, pero` fra poco si muove al canale 32. * Portland (Oregon area) There is a weekly radio show that is composed of entirely Italian music (Baglioni, Pavarotti, ecc) Sunday 10-11am (Local time: GMT-0800) Frequency: 1150 kHz (AM) * New York C'e` una stazione TV a New York City, WNYC (Canale 31) che trasmette il Telegiornale tutte le sere alle 7:30 PM dal lunedi` al sabato. La domenica invece partita di calcio in diretta (comincia verso le 8-9AM), e verso mezzogiorno TG dell'una in differita e Novantesimo Minuto in diretta. Vern <VernonH@aol.com> writes: I have watched RAI on American satellite for some 8 yrs. They move around a bit but the magazine Orbit keeps track of them. Radio on F1 (C1) transponder 15 Audio 7.38 N 24 hrs TV G7 transponder 9 Daily M-F 6-8 (ET) (Variety + half hr news Sat 7-8 PM (Non sto a casa) Sun 8 am - 2pm (Variety & Calcio) (RAI has some arrangement with Channel 31 out of NY.) * Virginia e Maryland Carlo Graziani <carlo@twinkie.gsfc.nasa.gov> writes: WNVC - Channel 56, la Public Television Station di Fairfax Virginia, trasmette un telegiornale RAI (TG1 o TG2, la scelta varia di settimana in settimana) ogni sera dal Lunedi` al Venerdi` alle 23:30. Mi risulta che sia reperibile via cavo sia a Washington D.C. che in periferia. Ogni tanto trasmettono anche una partita di serie A. Tra l'altro, come ogni stazione PBS vivono di donazioni, e mandandogli un contributo si puo` incoraggiarli ad aumentare la programmazione in lingua italiana. A buon intenditore.. ==Q4.3= Is there a list of the Italian radio stations in the world?
