Frequency re-use on 9B might scupper that plan. 12111v in use on both italian & nordic beams.

Yes, the downlink levels will be similar in this part of the world, but the two transmissions have different parameters, plus there should be a very small difference in the polarisation skew settings that a polarotor can further separate.

What does this mean 5w will stop broadcasting soon? Will BIS move to 13e?

I think 10972V has just migrated to new bird, now in Transalpine beam.
Also, many italian DTT gone in the high band. I think they are preparing final dismiss of 5WA.

I find it difficult to believe that Eutelsat has no birds to temporarily place at 5W or borrow one from another operator.

They don't need extra capacity at 5w anymore, why would they invest in another bird?

I'm trying to figure out why the signal on 11138V and 11512V dropped so much at my location, while it is still strong on 11596V, 12690V and 12732V.
It could be that they moved 11138 and 11512 to 5WB already ?

according to lyngsat not.
But because the old bird is inclined 0.7 degrees that could be the reason why you have lower signal levels?

No because the other 3 signals are still strong as usual, even though change along the day. If was that, the big difference would be on all 5 muxes. There was a big drop since 2 days ago only on 11138 and 11512.

Moved 11138 and 11512 to new 5WB
That's what I thought.
Very interesting news. What does it mean in terms of % utilization of the new 5WB? Maybe they managed to improve the situation?
At same time, I may have seen a slight drop in signal in some other transponders of 5WB, still not quite sure. May have been other factor. But if so, maybe thei're sharing power between more transponders?
