Second that. There are lots and lots of muxes with low bandwidth, and
the satellite feeds used by many providers are usually 6111 MS or
something similar. Some people enjoy watching those, as they sometimes
contain football feeds or other such stuff.
C band usually use small bandwidth "muxes" with only one channel in
them also. Why put a limit on it? If it works, it works. I can
understand a limit on frequency, but not on symbolrate.
