ARABSAT 2B LAUNCH
The Ariane V92, with on board the Arabsat 2B for 21 Arab countries and
Measat 2 for Malaysia, have launched with an exeptional precise launch
by Arianespace yesterday evening 11:40 CET. Both satellites transmitted
soon after separation from the launcher their telemetric, and status
data. The Arabsat 2B will be positioned at 31.5 East, taking over the
duties of Arabsat 1C which itself will be relocated to the empty
location from Ex-Arabsat 1D-R on 20 East, performing telecommunication
A txm of the launch could be seen on:
INTELSAT 602, 63 East, txpr 38A, 4.166 GHz, Rc
ARABSAT 1C, 31 East, txpr 18, 4.033 GHz, Lc
ARABSAT 2A, 26 East, txpr 6, 12.620 GHz, V
ARABSAT 2A, 26 East, txpr 8, 3.864 GHz, Lc
ARABSAT 2A, 26 East, txpr 2, 3.741 GHz, Lc
INTELSAT 705, 18 West, txpr 38B, 4.188 Rc
HOT BIRD 2 LAUNCH
For the second day in a row had the launch of the Atlas Rocket, with
onboard Eutelsat's Hot Bird 2, to be postponed due to strong winds. Last
launch window in this week is Friday evening. After that the launch of
the Space Shutttle gets the priority, then the launch of HB2 is not to
be expected prior to Wednesday next week.
GORIZONT 24 & EXPRESS 6, 80 East
An improvement of TV6 and RTR could also not be observed today. However
there was plenty of activity on this position. During the day both
existing channels became visible, dissappeared, changed frequencies,
whenever a stable picture could be seen, they returned to the known
frequencies. In my opinion, a lot of testing is going on, but official
transferred to the Express are these channels not yet.
Empty carriers could be observed today, at various times, on: 3.675 Rc,
3.725 Rc, 3.825 Rc, 3.850 Rc, 3.875 Rc, 3.925 Rc, 3.985 Rc, 4.025 Rc,
4.050 Rc, 4.080 Rc, 4.125 Rc, 3.965 Lc and 3.995 Lc.

Txpr 1, 12.169 GHz, Rc, the noise in picture and sound are gone.
Txpr 2, 11.919 GHz, Rc, is still quite good in quality.
Txpr 3L,11.766 GHz, Rc, ist presently hard to receive in Cairo.
Txpr 3U,11.835 GHz, Rc, is, is getting better, but still hardly anything

Israel 3 changed from txpr 3L, 11.131 GHz, V, to txpr 5U, 11.596 GHz, V.
Txpr 5L, was, at times, showing an empty carrier on 11.532 GHz, V.
Txpr 4U, 11.510 GHz, V, was used for a feed from RR Communications from
Txpr 6L, 11.653 V, was switched on with a powerfull empty carrier.
