Looking for @John carriers as here: Amos-17 C-band HTS in sub-Saharan Africa - SatsUK
I peaked on 16E beacon by mistake. Amos 17 is on 11699.5V and Eutelsat 16E is on 11699.2H. There also seem to be a couple of carriers above 11699.5H from 16E. The other beacon from Amos 17 is on 11449H. Listing suggest the Amos beacons are circular polarisation, maybe they were initially? On my 1.2m it's hard to spatially separate when they are that close.

17E Green
16E Yellow
Peaked on 17E, frequency not GPS locked

... just looking at my notes from yesterday afternoon Graham for that sequence of carrier progressions in Ku High Ver and they stopped the activity at approx 2.55pm UK and have not seen any similar activity since in Ku High Ver.

... that analysers brilliant on the 1.00 MHz span Graham :D:Y

Thanks for confirmation.

Try this, 11449H with 10Hz RBW, GPSDO locked now so frequency is correct.

... this is that beacon on the Promax down to minimum span 10MHz.

** Side note - - I obtained a couple of Gibertini feeds the other day for use on the 1.2 Gibby here and paired one up with a 'Blazer' Universal PLL lnbf modded for C120 and gained an extra 1dB min
