Thread title update to the most likely relocation of Eutelsat 7A to 33.1°east or 48°east ??

As the logical place for 7A was 5 west it seems that Eutelsat is set on moving all Italian multi-stream TV from 5 west to the very tight Italy footprint on Eutelsat 9B @ 9 east :(

This document was published by a friend in a famous Arabian forum, it talks about Eutelsat 139 WA space debris mitigation plan, the document was originally published on the 14th of October 2019, and mentioned that Eutelsat 139 WA was launched on the 15th of March 2004, that's the exact date of Eutelsat 7A launch date, so, most likely, Eutelsat 7A is heading to 139 West and eventually will be renamed to Eutelsat 139 WA,
Interestingly, the document mentioned that the operational life of the satellite is not expected to end before mid 2025 !!!!

I've found this. It seems Eutetlsat has recently requested 139ºW orbital position exploration to the FCC.

I am keeping an open mind for Eutelsat's 7A final location 33.1 east & 48 east seem more lightly,
If the intended location is 139 west then it would have been quicker for E7A to have gone in a westerly direction :eek:

Hispasat 30W-4 is moving to 139 west the same destination as E7A was predicted to move to a few months ago ?

Here on page 63 was the STA a few days ago that mentioned 137°W:
https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DOC-361444A1.pdf
But unfortunately, mistakes like this at FCC at not very rare.
Now @ 138 west

I am beginning to wonder if the info on E7A latest info is also a mistake ?
