PANAMSAT 4, 68.4 East
Against another OM's opinion, I can confirm the continuing txm of Indian
national broadcaster Doordarshan on txpr 12, 4.034 GHz, V, in the early
Additionally are test txm performed of with the identical Doordarshan
programme content on txpr 11, 4.040 GHz, H.
Doordarshan Movieclub and Doordarshan Metro 2 have ceased their txm.
In the afternoon several test broadcast from other services could be
observed on 4.040 GHz, H, . e.g. Star Sports, BBC World etc.
TURKSAT 1C, 42 East
TRT International / Avrasya is broadcasting on txpr 1L, 11.469 GHz, V on
the Europa Beam. The programme contents are NOT identical to the TRT Int
broadcasts on txpr 10L, 11.553 H, Turkey Beam. Most probably they are
identical to the txm on Eutelsat II F1 on txpr 22U, 11.181 GHz, H, in
Cairo unfortunately not receivable.
GORIZONT 31, 40.5 East
Russian broadcaster M49 returned today with programming on txpr 6, 3.925
NVS (Kyrillic HBC) broadcasting at night time on the same txpr, has in
the lower left corner a globe with a blue/green concentric circle, three
times winding, as an on-screen logo.
EUTELSAT II-F2, 10 East
Turkish broadcaster NTV on txpr 20U, 11.018 GHz, H, has lenghtened their
txm time into the night and the programme contents are more suited for
the younger generation.
INTELSAT 707, 1 West
Israels SNG txpr 71L, 10.967 GHz, V, shows present a constant colorbar
test card (beside SNG txm periods) after being off air for almost 10
INTELSAT 705, 18 West
The beam from Italian MCR-ROMA SNG txm on 10.975 GHz, V and the higher
part of the txpr on 11.137 GHz, V has been slightly moved eastwards.
Reception quality improved.
Further heavy use of all SNG txpr e.g. 4.166, 4.188 etc for the American
presidential election on Wednesday.
INTELSAT 601, 27.5 West
MCM Africa on 3.650 GHz, Rc, changed their AFRICA on-screen logo from
upper-left to upper-right. The previous frequent appearing MCM logo has
not been seen after that.
Programme contents are identical to the ones on HB1 and PAS 4, with the
exeption of a few African inserts from 17:00 CET.
