Reduce of air temperature from 36 (my previous reception) to 30 degr. C.
The SNR of Cherifla TV (12284 Ver) went from 15.5 to 16.5 dB. The TM2 (12344 Ver) is now at 9.6dB but during winter months i had almost 12dB.

Since today, Intelsat 903 (ex 34.5°W) joins Intelsat 25 at 31.5°W.
Being rather old (of 2002), could be spare only.
But if IS-903 activates, it will be circular in C-band, or in 10.95...11.2 or 11.45...11.7 GHz ranges in Ku-band.

Did not find a thread for Intelsat 903.
The satellite started inclining after arrival at 31.5°W, but was quite active in Ku-band according Flysat (data only).
A few days ago, the satellite was sent to graveyard orbit.

A shame I-903 isnt a candidate for life extension with a MEV.

Well who knows, I hesitated to say, but the last SEC Form-10K (2019) has Intelsat 903 "end of service life" in 2030.
Which makes me wonder, if it is possible to leave a satellite idle in graveyard orbit, to be docked by a MEV many years later!

Possibly, but tht would require its not passivated as its supposed to be at EOL so there arent ant accidental explosions. Maybe we have found the candidate for MEV3 :D

Or perhaps 2030 is just a typo for 2020!
