Admin edit - this seems a sensible point to split the reception related stuff for Amos 7 A/S

Spacecom started commercial operation on satellite Amos 7

27 February 2017 16: 42.08 TODAY!
Israeli satellite operator Spacecom started commercial operation on telecommunications satellite Amos seventh spacecraft is parked on the position of 4 ° W, which replaces the outgoing traffic for the satellite Amos 2 , who worked at this location for 13 years.

The position of 4 ° W had during the fourth quarter of 2016 to begin commercial operation of the new telecommunications satellite Amos sixth Satellite during preparatory work prior to scheduled flight exploded Spacecom and therefore had to quickly find a replacement for outgoing Amos 2. By the end of the year, the operator agreed with the Asian operator AsiaSat on transfer and lease of satellites AsiaSat 8 .In recent days, this cosmic apparatus arrived at the target position of 4 ° W, where it will now provide four years of service for customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa under the new name Amos 7 .

The signal has remained about at the same level as,say,two years ago.Here's a comparison between the two moments in time.
It's hard to figure out the differences of signal because I'm right in the center spot of the satellite,of 57 dBW.I find it normal that you have signal variations because you are on the edge or even outside the footprint.
So, I don't think they moved transponders on the new satellite.

Remember with these reports of signal strength variations, that the old Amos 2 is already inclined 0.5°.
With big dishes and without tracking, variations are to be expected.

DSCN1850[1].JPG 10 842 H 30000 Amos-2 has switched off twice this morning looks like it has gone now no back again o_O if this in the Amos-3 or Amos-7 beam it is not very strong here compared to Amos-2.

Amos-3 on the European beam is inconsistent with regards to signal strength there are 18 DTH transponders on the European Beam & I can only get 5 of them looks like 10722 H has switched from Amos 2 now.
