------------
TV Angola (TPA) on txpr 102L, 3.780 GHz, Lc has today almost perfect

the upper part of the txpr has shut down.

ORBIT IN TUNISIA
----------------
The Orbit Satellite Television & Radio Network will soon commence
distribution of its channels in Tunisia.  High level discussions between
the company and the local authorities have resulted in the Ministry of
Information's issuance of a "Cahier des Charges", which grants Orbit the
right to register its company and distribute its sophisticated digital
receivers in this important North African territory.

A specially tailored bouquet drawn from the network s more than 30 TV
and radio channels will be offered.  Orbit receivers will be distributed
through Orbit Direct Tunisie, a dedicated local representation.

The Orbit service is receivable throughout North Africa from the
high-powered Ku-Band digital transponders on Intelsat 705, located at 18
West.

INTELSAT expands
--------
The INTELSAT organization will order a thirty txpr, Ku-band only,
satellite from Matra Marconi. This satellite called K-TV will be located
at 95E by the end of '98 and serving the Asia-Pacific region. 
Best regards,
