Just noticed Flysat are reporting a new package on 11387H, reported as being on 7A, but not getting anything from this here, also a package was reported a few days ago on 11262H on the 7B Europe B beam, which i didn't get anything from either. The UK is just out of the footprint of the 7B Europe B beam, but only just! Seems odd that i couldn't even see the slightest hint of it on CrazyScan. Can anyone get the current package on 11387H or received the package that was on 11262H when it was active?

I receive both with over 10 dB S/N now, so I guess you're right about the tight footprint (Eutelsat 7B, Europe B beam).
11263 H 27500 5/6 DVB-S (this one I had already with Raha TV, but no video/audio now)
11387 H 27500 3/4 DVB-S (Fil TV, TVP Polonia and some Persians)

Thanks for confirming that. I find it amazing that i'm so close to the footprint but can't even see the slightest hint of a signal, whereas i can see signals from satellites like BADR 5/6 @ 26E, Amos 5 @ 17E and others (although they are well below lock level!) That is one amazingly tight footprint!

Pure speculation from me but part of the reason could be because you are so close to the edge of the official footprint you are in a null. It may well be that someone further away will get better reception as they hit the sidelobe and the signals increase.

Thanks for the input guys. Here's my CrazyScan of 7E, same freq range that hvdh scanned for comparison, and also a CrazyScan of 26E, showing that although i'm much further out of the footprint of BADR 6, i can still 'see' there's something there, whereas on 7E there's nothing at all! Strange one this!

I did tell flysat that there was no signal on either of these transmissions with 104cm Gibertini yesterday & today,

So I have for the moment assumed that these are test transmissions as I get the 2 Ku band European footprints with good signal quality,

Just Blind Scanned 11200 to 11450 V & H only getting 11220 H 27500 3/4 95% Quality (Eutelsat A beam) transponder active here today in this part of the Ku band.

Most Ku band transponders on the B beam over 90% Quality.

Indeed,11262 H has been activated-RahaTV and the signal on 11387 H is fairly strong in my area.

I think I preferred it when they satellite designers couldnt put such steep cut offs on the beams! :D
