11499,5 seems to be wrong... the correct frequency should be 11449,5.

Both telemetries can work in either LHCP or RHCP.

I think you're right, FCC made a typo.

In the document presented by Lockheed Martin to the FCC, is indicated 11449,5 (RHCP/LHCP).

Thanks @Marcus_21. The other beacon is active and visible if you look in the right place :-doh
SES-12 was about 3 times the distance compared to the previous capture hence the ~10dB drop in signal. The doppler shift was about -70kHz at the time of the plots and the settings were the same as for the previous post.

The orbit map also shows SES-14 approaching its final location.

Now it seems SES-12 has arrived near 113.5°E, this location was used already for in-orbit testing of SES-9, and was also visited previously by Astra 2A.

SES-12 has left in-orbit testlocation 113.7°E, and should be at final 95.0°E before the end of February.

I do not know what will be the coverage area of SES 12,but I hope the signal will be at least the half I get from NSS-6 now,Middle East beam.

Thanks @hvdh for the map.Looking at the beam in my area,I have the impression that what I want will fulfill.At 48 dBW the signal will drop almost to half? I hope I'm wrong :unsure

Somebody said they are now aligning both South and North Subscribers to ST-2 so Dish TV may not shift from NSS-6 to SES-12 but to ST-2.

Not onto NSS8 - that bird was destroyed back in 2007 thanks to a Sea Launch mishap at liftoff. Maximum altitude reached - about 1m!

Probably that's the explanation for which the signal has massive fluctuations even 2/3dB in my area,which never happened before,at the elevation of 4.16°.

Unfortnately DISH TV package dont use Ses 12 with better beam toward west.

Indeed,even in the eastern part of Europe :( Instead the signal on the Middle East beam was strong until now.

The reason for that is simple - the broadcasters are trying to restrict out of area coverage by using the most favourable beams for them. Exactly the same as the UK beams on 228E restricting coverage into Europe.
