GALS 1/2, 36 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/gals1.html
In the afternoon the test card of txpr 1, 12.169 GHz, Rc, dissappeared,
only an empty carrier was active. Broadcasts continued with the evening
ARABSAT 2A, 26 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/a2a.html
KSC Kuwait TV on txpr 7, 12.646 GHz, H, and Nile TV on txpr 5, 3.802
GHz, Rc, did not have interuptions today in their resp. txms.
ARABSAT 2B, 21.5 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/a2b.htm
Slowly but steadily are the txpr tested on this satellite. In the
morning still on since yesterday, txpr 2, 3.741 GHz, Lc and in the
afternoon txpr 20 4.140 GHz, Lc was switched on. Both were showing
strong empty carrriers. Late evening a digital test started on txpr 19,
4.126 GHz, Rc.
HOT BIRD 2, 13 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/hotbird.html
Testing continued today. I could observe tests on txpr 50, 11.727 GHz,
V; txpr 51, 11.747 GHz, H; txpr 61, 11.938 GHz, H; txpr 66, 12.034 GHz,
V and txpr 69, 12.092 GHz, H. Txpr 66 and 69 have been showing long
standing carrier beams on the widebeam.
The other observed txpr, were tested in superbeam modus. This is
therefore remarkably as txpr 50 and 51 are supposed to txm on the
widebeam and txpr 66 meanwhile is reserved by Telepiu for superbeam
TPS on txpr 61 went on air with MPEG 2 txms, as Norbert Schlammer from
Berlin reported in his earlier exclusive mailing, the txpr is active,
but more can't be discovered from Cairo.
Eutelsat II-f2, 10 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/e2f2.html
Bloomberg Television ceased today analog txm on txpr 37, 11.575 GHz, V.
It is reasonable to believe that txm are continued in digital form.
Signal levels are very low at the time, it could mean that the either
txpr is switched to superbeam modus or just txm on a low power level.
AMOS 1, 4 West, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/amos1.html
Txpr 4L, the "IBA CNCT CH1" txpr, has been switched off today.
GORIZONT 26, 11 West, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/g26.html
Late yesterday evening txpr 9, 3.825 GHz, Rc has been activated and
showing the Russian test card prior to a feed txm.
