Some Channels were shifted there from 7W quite recently too.

Maybe there's a grand plan to consolidate 7W and 8W into a single cluster, getting shot of older craft?

I think that it's M. East ? footprint and not European .

I also get 11096H (provider EF30k/E8WB with 28 channels) at 17.0 db with F15 .
