It is already known for a long time that Thor 2A is planned to be launched
during February 1997. Now, we can provide some info about this bird. Here
is the frequency plan:
TP       Frequency     Polarization
1          11.216          Horizontal
2          11.229          Vertical
3          11.247          Horizontal
4          11.261          Vertical
5          11.378          Horizontal
6          11.293          Vertical
7          11.309          Horizontal
8          11.325          Vertical
9          11.341          Horizontal
10        11.357          Vertical
11        11.372          Horizontal
12        11.389          Vertical
13        11.403          Horizontal
14        11.421          Vertical
15        11.434          Horizontal
Transponders will be used for both analogue and digital broadcasting. We
can expect that
analogue part will be used by channels currently broadcasting via TV-Sat 2
and Tele-X. Digital
part will be used by Telenor's and Nethold's (parallel with Astra 1E & 1F)
encrypted MPEG-2 packages. Channels from Thor 1 will not move to Thor 2A
right after launch because Thor 1
has lots of time to work left. 
Currently, we don't have the footprint of Thor 2A. But as we were told in
Swedish Microwave,
Moscow does not lay in the coverage zone, so we think Thor 2A will be not
much more powerfull than Thor 1.
Also, exact new launch date is not known. Previously, the satellite was
planned to be launched on february 22th, 1997, but after explosion of Delta
rocket on january 17th, 
all launches with this rocket are stopped untill the investigation of the
crash comes to the end.
Much more powerfull satellite Intelsat 707, as we expected, has two
"nordic" coverage-beams.
Very soon exact footprints will appear in Russian part of  the following

As we announced in last sat-moscow issue,  two transponders on Hot Bird 1
are about to become free after Telepiu's move to Hot Bird 2. Some sources
announced that one of transponders will be used by a German music channel.
The first expectation anyone may make is - VIVA - the most popular German
music channel. But VIVA already leased 2 transponders on Hot Bird 5, so,
probably this can be Onyx, which expected to start a digital package on one
of Hot Bird satellites, or brand-new channel. As soon as we have exact
information, we'll publish it here at once.
