There's a special look around the World Radio Network's computerised headquarters in London with station chief Karl Miosaga and a trip inside the  UK's Radio Authority.
The CAI will show you how to properly install a satellite dish and on Saturday from 1745 to 1815 direct from the Telekom Usingen uplink station, TELE Satellit's Dr. Dish (Christian Mass) and Petra Huther (TELE-satellit  Chefredakteurin) along with Tim Narwath (TESUG Deutschland) will host a German half hour.
The technical side of the event is impressive with outside broadcasts from Atlanta, Washington, France, Munich and Betzdorf possibly.

The camera will even take you onto a big dish and look inside the uplink !
