She's going back... slowly?
Maybe they are just letting her drift a lot more, to save fuel, since there are no active services on board.

The current TLEs are incorrect, currently located at around 10°E. The telemetry 11700,40 H is on and it is off on 11699,80 H.

The telemetry signal overlaps that of the Ka-Sat 9A.

16E is highly unlikely resting place for E7A,

13 east is a far better choice as 13E is not needed here & is ideally suited for 5 west back up,

W16A @ 16 east has more than enough capacity & does not need any back up at this moment in time,

Eutelsat's note on the movement of E7A:-
EUTELSAT 7A will be transferred to another orbital location as part of Eutelsat’s fleet optimisation strategy.

https://www.eutelsat.com/sites/eutelsat-internet/home/investisseurs/financial-information.html#reference-document

Hotbird 13E looks like a contender to move to 5 west only 3 active transponders currently in use with 38 Ku band Tp's available & has 4 years left in geostationary orbit,

HotBird13E then renamed E5 West C,
E7A renamed HotBird13H.:)

Yes this always happens as the tracking is automatic if 7A has stopped at 13 east it will be manually corrected soon.

hotbird market isnot growing. eutelsat wants to limit its beam with new satellite so I think EUTLSAT 7A willnot located at this position.

If 7A is still moving then these are the following options for Eutelsat:-

16 east
21.5 east
33.1 east
36 east
48 east

40.7N - 14.5E
The beacons 11200.00 H, 12500.50 H and 21404.00 H, are pure unmodulated beacons and are used only when the satellite is in the station.
While the beacons 11699.80 H and 11700.40 H contain the telemetry and can remain on during the movement. However during the movement, the S-band telemetry should also be turned on (for LEOP/Emergency operations).

I confirm that it is still moving east ... it did not stop at 13°E.

In my opinion, the most likely slots are 33°E or 48°E.

33E sounds a good place as there is very little activity here I presume that 33E / Hotbird 13D will move to another location ?

48 east maybe the intended location as there has been nothing here for a long while except an inclined orbit satellite,
