Hope this helps as a guide to what frequencies Astra satellites @ 28.2 may use.

Looks very useful, thankyou.

Mind you, whether classing them all as 28.2E sufficiently describes that aspect, bearing in mind where 2E is located, I'm not too sure!

This data shows a wider frequency range coverage than I was aware of,

Detailed info was as not available on the SES Astra sites as it used to be for all Astra satellites a few years ago.

When Eutelsat 28A retires soon 11.200 to 11450 part of the Ku band will be shared between Astra 2E,2F & 2G as they have 4 transponders each sharing coverage this part of the Ku band. (See Ku Band Plan in post #1,)

Eutelsat will then lease frequencies from Astra for various feeds ect as it is currently happing here:-
Astra 2F 11464 H DVB-S/MPEG-2 22000 5/6 GlobeCast feed for [Commonwealth Games test card]

Eutelsat will still operate @ 28.2/28.5 east from 11225 to 11685 + 12690 to 12750 using leased transponders from SES Astra.

Are these not the plans made by a member of this forum using data obtained from the observed tests and other sources? They look like scanned printouts of the PDFs I saw on here last year and I think they contain a bit of speculation and educated guesswork.

Yes, these frequency plans of Astra 2E, 2f and 2G are forecasts only, made by our member Marcus_21, and were posted in this forum.

If he would consider them good/final enough, they would be available also on his site:
http://frequencyplansatellites.altervista.org/
But that doesn't seem to be the case, yet.

Thanks.

As a general matter of principle - and applicable to all Forum Members, it's always a good idea to provide attribution at the beginning: Info finds it's way round cyberspace so quickly and universally that establishing the true source can become tricky quite quickly!

An extensive search to find more data only reveals this so far:-

So it would seem that the frequency plan originated here on satellites.co .uk.

You found Marcus_12's Astra 2E/2F/2G frequency plans at Satstar?
I can only find footprints there. Can you give the exact link?

OK understood. Reason I persisted, satstar.net looks like some commercial operation, and probably Marcus_21 won't like others making bucks from his excellent scrutinous work! One can freely link to his site pdf's, though.

On the Combination of Astra / Eutelsat 28.2 ° / 28.5 ° East apparently stands before the start of a TV channel for the Commonwealth Games that run this year from July 24 to August 3 in Glasgow, Scotland. About the GlobeCast platform launched under the symbol "Commonwealth Games", a corresponding unencrypted test channel. Is sent via the UK-spot beam of the satellite Astra 2F via frequency 11,464 H (SR 22000, FEC 5/6).

This guide was written for Astra-1 satellites @ 19.2 east but can apply to 28.2/28.5 after Astra 2G launches.astra1freqs.gif

Found on SES Astra site a few years ago.
