12 304 H is activated again but this time it's much stronger than the previous time this transponder on the UK beam was used.
The level is about the same as the European beams on 2F at my place. Is 12 304 H now transmitted on a European beam?
Lyngsat and Flysat says UK beam on 2F but if so I can't get why the level is so much higher now.
Before the switch off the level was around 8 dB and now it's around 14,5 dB som my absolute conclusion is this is now a European beam.

I'll answer my own question above! 12 304 H must still be on 2F but on a European beam. 2E and 2G are much stronger than 2F even on the EU-beams. 2G is almost extremely powerful at my place.
So strangely enough 2F seems to be able to do 12 304 H both on a the UK beam AND on the EU-beam but not at the same time of course.
Reception of the EU-beams looks like this at my place in the southern parts of Sweden:
2F 14.5-15.5 dB.
2E: 16 dB.
2G: 16-20 dB. Most of the TP:s 19-20 dB but 11 553 H just around 16 dB.

Western Finland (63N 22E)
12304H was previously 2E UK (not 2F UK) Now it's 2F Europe.
Difference between 2E (28.5E) / 2F (28.2E) is really easy to see here (3m)

Similar for Madrid (Spain), I sent the theme to flysat the other day when Hendrik fished the channel, he does not see the UK beam.
2F UK ==> 2F Europe
The difference in levels is important.

Similar por Madrid (españa), les mande el tema a flysat el otro dia cuando Hendrik pesco el canal, no ve el haz UK.
2F UK ==> 2F Europe
La diferencia de niveles es importante.

Not at all unexpected - we have known all along the three birds can all cover for each other. SES couls have a total failure of one of the 28E birds and suffer no great problems. Therefore the transponders must be switchable between beams to a great or lesser extent
