Astra 2C only ever had one beam listed when she was at 19.2E....
But when she was relocated to 28.2E two were listed.... Have a look at the north beam lobe covering the Canary Islands - according to that map most of the power is covering the seas to the west of the islands! That has to be an mapping error on the part of the SES drawing staff.
May 2009 and 2C was relocated to 31.5E to replace the defunct Sirius 2 / Astra 5A.
The beams are now mapped as west and east:
ANd heres the official map for the coverage now Astra 2C has slotted back at 19E.
Note how the beam is slewed much further round to the north than the map in the first post to restrict to limit reception in eastern Europe.
Heuvos has pointed out that the coverage areas on the maps in posts 1 & 4 are similar, but the map projection has changed - and having had a second look yes I suppose they are very similar
