    Astra 1F / Galaxy 11

    Astra 1F stayed at 44.3°E (not 44.5°E) for several years. This because back in 2016, Nimiq 2 already held the 44.5°E slot, then Astra 1F arrived at 44.3°E and stayed here even after Nimiq 2 left. But a few days ago Astra 1F started drifting West, and now still accelerating. This might be...

    Forum upgraded to xenforo 2.2
