You can pick it up on Free To Air dish on satellite IA-5 at 95 *W since they are in the clear transmission.

It's on FSS band freq, ranges 10.7 to 12.2 GHz band.

You must have at least 3 foot "90 CM" dish in order to pick up the signal.:)

Have fun TV DXing!!:)

Those who care deeply about Israel have something new to worry about al-Jazeera in English. The Gulf-based media behemoth-Persian Gulf, that is, not good old friendly Galveston-has just launched a 24/7 global news service to rival CNN and BBC, whom friends of Israel aren't thrilled with either. Now, on hi-def screens in bars and cafes, cellular phones and other wi-fi contraptions, home and office computers, and plain old color TVs in rumpus rooms, viewers worldwide will be treated to a look at Israel (and the rest of the known universe) from a decidedly Arab perspective. Welcome to the 21st century.

I've not seen the English al-Jazeera yet; the Israeli cable provider that will be carrying it is the one I don't subscribe to. But I can just bet what it will be broadcasting: Israeli citizens panicking in Sderot, where puny rockets fired by Gaza guerrillas are a constant and lethal threat. The Israel Defense Forces using massive state-of-the-art tanks and artillery to try and stamp out the Islamic resistance fighters," to no avail; but in the process killing scores of innocent civilians, including many children....

:scratch: So this is just a commentary on what someone imagines is going to be on? Is that helpful?

I agree we live in a world of free speech so think its good to have the other side of the storey hopefully people can find a middle ground if they see both sides views
