Nimiq 2 is now at 44.5°E as Marcus_21 already reported.
Nimiq 2 has built up an inclination of 0.7° already.
Transponders are between 12.2 and 12.7 GHz, circular polarisation.

Astra 1F thas was at 44.5° until recently, has moved away slightly to 44.3°E, to make room for Nimiq 2.

Today I sent lots of sat list corrections to Flysat, among these were:
Nimiq 2, 44.5°E, with 0.8° inclination
Astra 1F, 44.3°E, without inclination.

Unlike transponder changes, Mr. Flysat usually takes a few weeks to digest my corrections. ;)
Never mind Lyngsat, sat list maintenance and accuracy is very low priority there.

Christian used to update his site within 48 hours but now lyngsat is 5 to 6 days behind what is actually happening I no longer send updates here,

flysat does not respond to all my updates he includes new transponders on satellites but not to my revised feed lists for 16 east,10 east,7east.8 west & 12,5 west :eek:

I have posted most of my updates for 8 west & 12.5 west here & still working on the others atm.

hi --
Not a flicker here for me in north west uk ... with 1.8 cm offset
have tried with regular linear l.n.b. .... and also with C120 + channel master feed + depolarising plate
weather conditions are quite good here today ... moving the dish to 36 east i have a lock today on 12.149 L 27500 (russian beam) using c.m.feed etc .. so my setup is o.k. .... must be completely out of the footprint for Nimiq-2 ................

Nothing here either, except a peak in spectrum. Footprint must drop-off a lot from Paris to NL.
@martin-f , next Nimiq 2 crossings at 00:35 and 12:32 UTC.
