Hotbird 13A (ex Hottie 6) - the easiest of the 13E satellites for India to receive - will be withdrawn from 13E in July and sent to 8W. Her replacement will be 13D, which is identical to 13B &C

Where/what is 13D at the moment? 3C?

Edit: Found the press release, so yes 3C will become 13D. Had a quick look at the footprints for 3C looks like it's slightly weaker than 13B or 13C.

Theoretically B C & D are identical birds (the old 8 9 & 10)

Yeah, so they say, maybe the transmitting dishes are slightly different but the satellite has the same electronics internally?

Not sure how the current 3C footprint can reach Iceland, for example, like the current 13B & 13C footprints do even after they re-adjusted the beam slight northwestwards.

really bad news indeed... as in north india as they have good signal from hotbird 6 where as hotbird 8 & 9 is very weak so only india upper part like Punjab and J&K will get the satellite.. rest will be BLACK SCREEN

Odd - from footprints it seems like signal strength should be similar from all of these birds.

as per latest news what I am getting transponders above 11585 has no signal over india even in Punjab they are missing.

Can anyone tell what may be the issue as there is not even 1% signal coming above 11585,11662, 11681 Higher Ku band all are missing
