I don't know about snipe, but presume you could do a full scan.
My post is aimed at funsters in southern Europe.
Looking forward to Francie and Josie though!

Will not stay on the Euro beam for long...either they go free to view sky card needed), or they will move to the UK beam soon.

As i predicted, the three widebeam FTA versions of STV HD are now encrypted and need a sky viewing card to access...
they remain on the euro beam, so can still be accessed on small ish dishes in south spain and portugal, but you need a sky card to access

And now it looks like those STVs are being moved around, moved to another frequency, perhaps in preparation for a move to a uk beam transponder
