Topic for general comments once 2G is on station and the transfers from existing Birds commence.

Signal reports to the dedicated regional Topics instead, please.

How much is a jump ? Could it be that 2G goes to 28.5 to the position of the Eutelsat ?
................
No.
Each jump to 14Voltios are 0'1º.

I need 15 extra jumps to this signal to be localized beacons G2 that are not present in 28'2ºE.

11025 Mhz. H
10956 Mhz. H

----------
No.
Cada salto a 14Voltios son 0'1º.
Ajustada la antena maxima señal en:
CL4, 5USA, Showcase y Bliss.
Necesito 15 saltos extras al este para tener señal de las balizas localizadas del G2 que no estan presentes en 28'2ºE.

This morning it was necessary to modify 0'3º the position of the antenna to have 100% signal in tp test.

11054-11171H significant variations in the group, several off beacons.
10949'8Mhz active H level and much more, a new in 10958Mhz H, but is intermittent and is now very low.

Similar levels beacons Sunday Horizontal low band.

10949'8Mhz H .... ok
10958Mhz H .... intermittently.
10980 => 10978Mhz. and 10983Mhz. active ... ok
11026 H ... ok
11198 H ... ok
11533 H SR + 20.000..ok (??)
11610 H ... ok

Then I upload more photos.

Strathclyde on DS has been posting again some info that at 01:00 on 18th June Eutelsat 28A transponders D7, D8, D11 will appear on interim temporary transponders on 2G. Then at 05:30 C1U and C1L will switch over to their their permanent slots on 2G.

He also states that ITV will start moving some of their transponders over to 2G overnight on 17th. Looks like 2G could be used quite heavily and may be of more interest to ex-pats than some of us had first thought.

"overnight on 17th" does this mean the coming night (16. to 17.) or the next night (17. to 18.)?

I was wondering the same thing so I have asked. Not sure as I originally thought things would start to happen on the 18 and 19th but it could be ITV are doing their moves earlier.

Looks like soon we should get an idea on how these UK spots are going to be for the ex-Eutelsat transponders and the critical ones used BBC/ITV/etc.

Then at 05:30 the same night, the 'in earnest migration of the C1U and C1L transponders from Eutelsat 28A to their permanent slots on the Astra2G.

There were some Freqs changes on Sky UK, don't know if this is a normal routine or something to do with the arrival of 2G.
e.g Sky action SD had a freq of 11836 H 27500. Now its 11934 V 27500 5/6.
National Geo Wild had a freq of 11603 V 29500 DBV-S2. Now its 12187 H 27500 5/6.
