Hona Baghdad has gotten weaker in the last couple of years, now just around lock level.

Hona Baghdad gone, active feed on 11.034 H.
I tried to find Hona Baghdad after your post but couldn't find it.
Instead, I found a bunch of spikes that don't tell us much.
My only puzzlement is that the Hona feed was permanently at 11689 H. This time, it seems to be optional, which intrigues me.
Usually, there is an optional feed at 11030 H,11033 H, and 11036 H, with the same symbol rate of 2300, all Service 1, whereas Hona was mentioned on 11689 H.
Of course, what I say now must not be true because your dish is bigger, and the chances of muxes locking are higher than with my dish, which is only 1.50m. :Y
Here is such a feed:

Don't be confused, Hona Baghdad has gone permanently from 11.689 H since a while. The report has nothing to do with the feed mentioned on 11.034 H which btw you seem to receive very well as well.

There is no confusion, knowing that Hona left 11689 H.
I am interested in whether 11030 H is the new permanent location of Hona Baghdat(?). On this frequency, and those close to it, Spot 2 feeds have been used over the years, such as the one I posted above, which is not Hona's.
That's what I wanted to know when I intervened on the topic.
It remains to check whether the signal is indeed the Hona Baghdad feed when it appears again at 11030 H.
As you know, there are other (Arab) operators/providers in the area who use Spot 2 for their feeds.

I now happen to receive the feed on 11030 H,2300,5/6,8PSK.
So far, there is no picture, but it is the same Provider-Ericsson and Service-1. There is no Hona Baghdad.
While posting, the signal disappeared.

What makes you think Hona Baghdad would now be permanently here?! 11.030 H (and around) has long been used for various feeds and I cannot recall a single time being used by Hona Baghdad.
11.689 H was a contribution feed, no occassional use.

Strangely, you completely misunderstood what I wrote in my previous posts.
I apologize if I misspoke. I don't think I did.
On the contrary, I have maintained from the beginning that this feed, 11030 H, is not used by Hona Baghdad but by other operators.
I have seen many times the logo of this service/feed, which looks like this:

Ah, OK, you mean 11030 H was used by Hona for their occassional use feeds ... among other broadcasters? Yes, that is very likely.

That is not what I argued, but that 11030 H was used by other operators and not by Hona!:)

You can't find the feed now because it has left the sat.
