Intelsat 702 32.9º E

Whilst looking for this with C-Band managed to lock only one:-

Others without lock were:-
3900 R 4.6db
3976 L 2.8db
3984 R 5.6db

¿Is it possible someone can do a scan and show their results also?

Thanks for that.

Even with 3m it's too small for this position, especially for APSK streams.
A 5M dish is better but not big enough to lock all frequencies

DATA only.

Thank you for that.....interesting.

New satellite for me so well pleased with a lock on a 1.8m PF and especially after your dish size comments.

Best wishes. :)

Browsing through the Intelsat ephemeris, found that Intelsat 702 (incl. 4°) must have left 32.9°E on 14 September.
Will now be about 15°E, moving West 4° per day.

This is the end-of-life manoeuvre, announcement filed to FCC already in April:
"Intelsat License LLC requests special temporary authority for a period of 75 days to continue operations of the Intelsat 702 space station at the 32.9° E.L. orbital location past the end of its license term, July 18, 2016, in order to allow Intelsat to de-orbit the space station."

P.S.: TLE's are still old (12 Sep), so do not yet show this.
