It's expected to reach 14 East in a few days, and then move to
its final position as 13 East, to start official transmissions
on 20 Dec. You can follow it's current location at the European
chart index.

The recently launched Measat 2 is now located at 148 East.

No news yet about where Arabsat 2B currently is, but it's
expected to be available at SATCO DX in a few days...

All charts are going through a major layout change, page per page.
The satellites with the new layout are marked by a * on the chart

got the new layout last week.
