Does anybody spot any changes in reception of the steerable beam (centered at the Red Sea) of Eutelsat 8 West A? I was receiving just two signals from this beam, 11555V with 5-5.5dB, and less frequently 11595V. Now something happened today (reposition of the spot beam, changing of the beam, don't know) and all four transponders of this beam are receivable with 11-12 dB!

There is similar topic here, on the greek sdtv.gr, Adonis from Syros was the fist who spotted this change...
