Hotbird 4 tests , Arabsat, Wizja TV




Sat - Corfu 13/3

---------------- ENGLISH  VERSION ------------------

* A new polish digital package, Wizja TV has started testing on 2 frequencies, 12,304 H on Astra 1F
and 11,992 H on Astra 1G. With 7 channels on each frequency ( SR 27500 FEC 3/4) , its official
starting date is April 18th.Until it gets coded we can watch some movies for free. At present movies
are shown ( same on all 7 channels) on both frequencies until around 19:00 .
At least the Astra 1G frequency is easy to receive all over Greece, whereas the horizontal
frequencies of Astra 1F require large dishes( 3+m).

* Hotbird 4 is still at 29E, very close to Kopernikus 2 and tests continue on various frequencies.
(10,815 Ç - 12,303 V - 12,359 H). Next week the new bird will continue its journey to its final
position at13E. Around  March 25th , we should get the first transmissions from that spot.
Officialy it will start on March 31st.
Already two frequencies are booked , one is 12,731 H where the Arabsat Digital bouquet will
broadcast all over Europe and the other is10,815 Ç where Hungarian  Duna TV will move from Eutelsat
II-f3. Duna Tv will continue on Eutelsat II-f3 until  the end of April.

* Afro-Caribbean Satellite Television is a new channel that will start on Eutelsat II-F3 16E in
April . No frequency was given , but since it will transmit 2 hours every afternoon ,  freq. 11,575
is the most probable.

* Arabic Satellite organization , Arabsat, announced that for the first time , it manged to have
profits.
The report says the it had profits of $55million in 1997.
Arabsat, founded in 1976 by the 20 member countries of the Arab league , is getting prepared for the
first of its third generation satellites, due to be launched next year.It will have 20 Ku band
transponders capable of transmitting digital channels.
Arabsat has an option on  a frequency on the new Hotbird 4 and it will probably launch an Arabic
digital bouquet ( encrypted).
