The microwave live link. You suggest (footnote 25) that the BAOR live link started in 1983. This is a long way from accurate. Most of BAOR watched the SAS storm the Iranian Embassy live via the live link. I didn't. I was in class on a German Linguist course at Mühlheim AD Ruhr, which being a minor garrison had not yet got the link. I was also able to watch the 1981 Royal Wedding live, being sat in a room on site guard, a week before my own wedding.

But I'm not going to crayon all over the page. I'll that to somebody to check the facts. AlienFTM (talk) 10:53, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Confusion about terrestrial and cable broadcasts[edit]

I corrected the following claims:

  • The analogue terrestrial television broadcasts used to be unencrypted, at least in Germany.
  • SSVC television was not on the West Berlin cable network (nor anywhere else as far as I know). The reference to the contrary claim to google books leads to nowhere meaningful. If the person who wrote the original paragraph could clarify why he/she thinks otherwhise, I'm happy to discuss.

For reference the original quote:

Until 1994, it was available on cable in West Berlin to non-military audiences.[1]
