I thought I'd take a look at 31.5E with my 80cm dish, having noticed Astra 1G has a West Beam.

Anyway, a Blind Scan came up with one single FTA TV Channel

Diver (It's a Wallpaper type placeholder, with Video of a Diver floating through Tropical Fish)

11429 V 10099

Problem is, it isn't listed as a valid 1G TP, nor does it seem to belong to any Bird there or thereabouts!



Any ideas?

Aha!

Now I see: Flysat has it as Test Card Left 16.01.2014

Well it hasn't left and, as you say, is very strong.

80cm dish in rain set 1.6 deg off.

Thankyou :D

Well I've corrected the Azimuth from 31.5E to 33.1E and my Tuner is nigh on smoking on "Diver"!

Excuse me while I quote myself.

On 31.5E proper, I'm getting the square root of a cocoa tin on the 80cm.

Can't deploy George as the 1.1m doesn't have LoS.

Edit: With dish at 31.5E, I've also got a couple of Eut 33A $ Channels coming in:

Turf TV & TTV Al on 11650 V 10097

If it's the same video as on Eutelsat 3A @ 3.3° East then it's definitely Eutelsat 33B:

Well here I could do with an attenuator at front end. But seriously I should think that the Satellite guys should tell the customer earth station to lower the uplink Power to a pre-determined level as per contract.

Maybe Astra 2B is in use now for some transponders?
Although 2B and 1G are 0nly 0.16 degrees apart, I wrote down the dB values when pointing to 32.0 East, then moved to 30.7 East.
11758 H and 11934 V came in the same, while the other transponders (Orange Romania) became 0.5 to 1 dB worse.
Also, 11758 H and 11934 V are about 3 dB stronger than the others here.

Blimey thats strong! -Im getting 33B on a marginally misaligned 80cm dish pointing at 36E!

(I tripped over the cable last night when trying to get Azersat back......) When the drizzle stops I shall realign it back to 36E

No sign of Diver - just Turf TV & TTV AL1 on the specified tp.
