Expected but still a suprise. This morning the Express 6 satellite was
taken in operation. Following channels have appeared since then:

Txpr 14, 3.975 Ghz, Rc, Strong empty carrier

The reception in Cairo ist strong, sparkle free without lowering

Serghey Kolosha, of the Russian TELE-satellite news service, reported
that the switch to MPEG2 of the NTV channel bouquet has been set back
until the 15th of January 1997.

ARABSAT 2A, 26 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/a2a.html
It's almost getting boring, KSC Kuwait was again off air during the day
on the Ku-Band txpr 7, 12.646 GHz, H. I'm wondering when they get their
up-link problems under control.
EUTELSAT II-f1, 13 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/e2f1.html
NBC on txpr 25, 10.987 GHz, V, widebeam, will loose his subtitle "Super
Channel" from the 1st of January 1997, when it will be officially
renamed in "NBC Europe".
EUTELSAT II-f2, 10 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/e2f2.html
As Stefan Hagedorn reports, will RTP Internacional close down its
services on this satellite on the 12th of January 1997. Widebeam
broadcasts can now be received from the same arc position on Hot Bird 2,
txpr 50, 11.727 GHz, V.

AMOS 1, 4 West, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/amos1.html
To my suprise all regular Israeli channels ceased today from this
satellite, with the exeption of the feed txpr 3, where at times, a
colorbar test card is shown "EHA BEZEQ" and some txm could be observed.
Following txpr have ceased:
Txpr 1L, 10.968 GHz, V, Israel 1
Txpr 1U, 11.005 GHz, V, Israel 2
Txpr 5U, 11.596 GHz, V, Israel 3
Txpr 4L, 11.467 GHz, V, IBA CNCT CH1 (ceased one week ago)
Following txpr are still active:
Txpr 2U, 11.105 GHz, V, Data Txm
Txpr 3M, 11.159 GHz, V, SNG feeds
Txpr 4U, 11.510 GHz, V, Feed from Betlehem
This early morning, I noticed a change on Israel 1, both on Amos and the
Intelsat 707 on 1 West. The standard test card had new titles: upper
row: "ISRAEL 1": Lower row: "BEZEQ -EITANIM".
The Intelsat txm are untouched, this evening all four txpr halves were
Txpr 71L, 11.136 GHz, V, Israel 1
Txpr 71U, 11.176 GHz, V, Israel 2
Txpr 101L, 10.968 GHz, V, Israel sports feed for Channel 5
Txpr 101U, 11.015 GHz, V, Israel 3
