Eutes 3A & 3D have been withdrawn & all traffic moved over to 3B.

C-band power over the UK is much lower now according to the footprint

Ah that's why then. I dunno if it's now worth keeping the 2 cband lnb's on the dish.

As that was my only H/V sat.

Which is very difficult to receive in the UK and needs a very big dish due to the very low power here.....

My favourite channes at that slot are DCC and AfricaMed. Both in french. Also really like Kenya tv at 5W. English and very comical sometimes. Pretty high power for me too.

The only listing I can see originating from 3B is the Libyan MUX on 3732R which is a reasonable 8dB SNR here. Lyngsat has some serious catching up to do but Flysat and Kingofsat both show it correctly.

Weather a bit weedy here, so getting no lock on either the Rascom 3985 tp or the new E3B one... but signal is there at about 2-3dB..

Libyan mux (3732) quite weak also here . Still watchable but bad change anyway. 2.9E 3971R/3985R giving signal only during cold/clear winter and only late evening. Maybe february last time saw these.

Btw. are you noticed 26E 3800R BeIn sports? Scrambled and sure there only because of footy i think but long time since 26E C-band channels last time.

Didn't know about the cband on 26e. I will try my luck with 2.9e.

New one on me too
I presume one of the Badr birds carries C band transponders ?
Badr 6 ..it would seem according to Satbeams ..
They have to be the quietest transponders in the Eastern hemisphere..
So quiet I didn't know they existed..
Off to take a look..
