After the additional transmission of TRT International Avrasya on
transponder 12, 10.971 GHz, H, with sound on 6.65 MHz, the radio station
on 7.02-7.20 Mhz could be identified by Muzaffer Parildar in Turkey as
TRT-FM. Thanks !
EUTELSAT II-f4-M, 7 East, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/e2f4.html
Again transmissions from BRTN 1, (Vlaams) on txpr 26, 11.078 GHz, V.
Nothing special in particular, but the BRTN often transmits the complete
signal in the feed, including Tele Text, which btw. includes a code that
immidiately switches the Tele Text watch on the top of the screen (not
undo-able, you have to power down the TV-set). The transmission was in
the clear (no SIS) with sound on 6.60 MHz.
INTELSAT 707, 1 West, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/i707.html
After the ceasure of all Israeli channels on Amos 1, minor changes on
the Isaeli transponder took place.
Transponder 111X-A, 10.968 GHz, V, Israel's feed transponder, used
yesterday the test card "IBA-CNCT-CH1" as seen on Amos, today a new one
appeared on there"EMEQ HAELA", which I never have seen before.
The standard test card for Israel 1, on transponder 73A, 11.136 GHz, V,
has still the new subtitel "EITANIM"
AMOS 1, 4 West, SATCO-DX: http://www.satcodx.com/amos1.html

A new map of the eurobeam of Sirius 2 has been added. (/maps/s2.gif)
I'm still looking for the ultimate way to present these maps, personally
I'm still not happy with them, but believe me: I'm working on it.
Several minor updates and compatibility changes took place.
