early memories
 organ music during tv timeouts in nhl games 
being able  to see announcers  before going on air always making mistakes 
weird things happening like in notre dame usc game zebras didn't wait for cbs station break before john carney kicked field goal. was in 86 remember verne lundquist having to apologize 
watched syndicated shows like "On Scene" before they sent to the stations i remember they would feed multiple episodes at a time
west coast network feeds
87 indy 500 when during commercial there was a big wreck and a tire went into the stands very scary. After the race, Jim McKay mentioned that someone had been killed but he didn't know who it was 
nba games
movie channels that were unscrambled 
mlb games until 88

IIRC, there were three full-time channels: CBC Atlantic (Halifax), CBC Eastern (Montreal), and CBC Pacific (Vancouver). There was also a "CBC North" for the NW Territories that was on the Eastern time schedule.

I remember you could call the c-band programming center and ask them to turn on a feed for you if you wanted to watch a local game.  They might charge you for a month of service or not, but it was well worth it to see a local game, even if it was generally blacked out.  Those were the days . . .

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
