Regarding the de-Sachsen-Anhalt file, apart from 3 or 4 frequency
entries the rest is useless being within the state, because regarding
transmitters the areas are mostly not coordinated.
Brocken and Magdeburg are the only sites with Sachsen-Anhalt that are
In fact, it is more common, that transmitters here are coordinated with
sites from others states, e.g. "ARD-Das Erste" multiplex in Halle/Saale
(Sachsen-Anhalt/Saxony-Anhalt) are coordinated with Leipzig
(Sachsen/Saxony) and Gera (Thüringen/Thuringia), because this area is
also topographically adjunct. "ZDF" multiplex is coordinated between
Hale/Saale and Leipzig ...

This does not matter, as the transmitters in Brauschweig
(Niedersachsen/Lower Saxony) and Halle/Saale (Sachsen-Anhalt) don't
interfere with each other (the sites are more than 140 km apart) and
there is a buffer zone of about 40 - 50 km between them, where you need
a directed roof antenna to either receive one of them.
As I've experienced so far while travelling, that there are only very
small parts in my federal state (Bundesland) of Sachsen-Anhalt where one
can receive more than one transmitter site (and in most of this cases, a
roof antenna is required, so you would normally have to direct this to a
Well, I believe both scenarios(scan file for federal state versus scan
file for a DVB-T region) have their pros and cons. :(
Fortunately programs like "Kaffeine" offer a full auto scan ...
