Coop moved from Turks & Caicos in 1990 to New Zealand where be built the country’s first CATV system and then a chain of FM radio stations. Yes, some habits die hard! To start he tackled the behind the times TV reception technology with a series of publications putting him back in the publishing world. A select (very) few appear here. Read the Prologue first and then as you wish. Copies of his highly successful Asia/Pacific SatFacts monthly appear elsewhere in this Legacy Site.


   In New Zealand Coop created a new trade association and a series of annual trade shows held in New Zealand and several Australia locations. This covered the period from 1995 to 2003. Within that framework, 15 one-hour satellite oriented TV programs were created and distributed via two different Asia/Pacific satellites as well as an Australian terrestrial network. Satellite enthusiast Alek Zapara (Western Australia) has rebuilt a selection of these programs which have been placed on YouTube. Follows his instructions for accessing those programs:
