Telenor (Norway) is behind Thor IIa. The name is from the famous
researtcher Thor Heyerdal. Thor III, IV and maybe V will also soon
arrive. This adress is for EXCITE, and will give you the some
information about Thor IIa.
Thor IIa have a capacity of 15 analogous channels and 70 digitals. Today
only TVS are transmitted from Thor IIa, but more are comming soon. For
norwegian readers I suggest "Lyd og bilde" nr. 5 1997.
Subject: Animal Planet: Eutelsat 2F1 11.057GHz H
Date: 29 Jun 1997 06:44:47 -0700
Whilst the vision is still showing Colour Bars, there is
now audio available (6.60 + 7.02/7.20MHz) on the 11.057GHz
Horizontal transponder of Eutelsat 2F1 (13 degrees east) on
Sunday afternoon 29.06.97.
Whether Animal Planet will start on Monday, or perhaps Tuesday
1 July, remains to be seen!
Animal Planet audio has been in English - let's hope that the
Video will be un-scrambled when it starts. Maybe it will be in
time-share with Discovery?
All the best,

Yes, I have seen all three channels. In addition ther is the
Multichoice info channel on 12.343 H. I do have the official smart card
of course. I read that the channels showed a testcard this afternoon
and where temporarily uncoded. According teh newspapers, tehy will
become uncoded in October.
Quality of the picture is ok, although N2 was grainy earlier on, but now
Teletext is available!
