It may be further noted that the Gyan Darshan Channel at the specified Technical Details is having number of alternative channels - GD I for telecasting the recorded educational programmes round the clock, GD II for Teleconferencing purposes etc. Accordingly GD II will not be visible other than the specified timings. You are required to first tune to GD I as per the technical details and at the specified timings fine tune your television set or the reception equipment to receive the Teleconferencing signals. Please note that the Gyan Darshan Channel is Dish Antenna Position Sensitive, which requires careful alignment. In case of poor reception kindly check the alignment of the Dish Antenna. Further all the Programme Organising Units are advised to retain a technician during the teleconferencing programmes to take care of the technical matters.
