Sounds like another Turksat placeholder on 31 East, probably just one transponder showing the great "TURKSAT TANITIM" promo. :eek: And with some luck maybe the odd feed.

Eutelsat 33A, the former e-bird/Eurobird 3, is the same spinner-type bus like Astra 2D, and was launched Sep 2003 with 10 years design lifetime...

33A now stable at 30.85 East.
(31.0 is already occupied by Hylas 2)
Waiting for the new name... 31A I guess?

33A Beacon at ~30.9 (can't do an exact reading, positioner pulse setting too coarse).

Other peak is some spillover from 33E, 11325H.

Name indeed became Eutelsat 31A, location is 30.8° East.
Eutelsat site says inclined orbit, but right now inclination is still small (0.1°).

For weeks I'm trying Flysat to make corrections in the Sat List, but it's his lowest priority and it's getting quite frustrating.
But I'll send a reminder and tell about the 33A to 31A renaming as well!
