I have seen the Indian Apna TV, uplinked from London, transmitting test
programmes on the analogue transponder 3, 12.665 GHz/V. The broadcasts
had/have a large caption superimposed over the picture, making it hard
to view, although being of long-play VHS quality, it's pretty hard to
As Orion is due to cease analogue useage on Orion 1 at the end of this
year, I doubt if this will be Apnas' permanent home.
As you said, Asianet is still on Orion 1, but it is now a digital feed.

I thought that the ISO card protocol easily told if a message from the

(say 1 in 5) replied with seed values. Surely filtering out the others
would be some help (but would only delay switch off messages).

I wondered about this as well. I guess that they must have thought of the
that an 0A card could be reactivated by sending it valid commands for its
09 emulation mode.
