Since last year, a lot of the Thai channels have been encrypted in BISS. It's only there to make sure that you buy their freesat decoders, which are only £15 for the HD boxes.

Might bring one back to England with me which'll be useless as we can't get thaicom in England :)

3803V Thai Tv 3 also here stronger than usually, about 5.7 dB when mostly something between 4-5 dB. Stable picture now.

What might be around 3770V - 3785V? Blindscan give 2-3 deb signal from there. 3880V 30000 or something else?

CH3 have always had the strongest transponders. They must pay the most to thaicom.

If anyone needs any help, feel free to give me a shout. Got a 2.4m here in Bangkok.

Tentative: 3715V ABC TV Nepal.

Locked but not picture though. Signal about 4.5 dB and Vpid 101/ Apid 256 as it should be. My Technomate says FEC 1/2 but it would "open" if this would be true, so maybe 3/4 still..?

Thaicom 5 Regional.

Thaicom 5 has communications anomaly, services are being moved to other satellites. :(

No drifting yet, still within the usual +/- 0.1° range.
But the usual fortnightly correction that should have been on December 30, was delayed until January 7.
So now inclination of almost 0.1° is a bit more than usual. Let's wait what the next correction brings.

No orbit correction since my previous post, so the inclination is increasing (about 0.15° now).
Drifting will be to the West probably, but not accelerating much because this satellite is close to the gravitational well at 75°E.
I wonder if they will be able to passivate this satellite.

C band coverage of thiacom 5 include many regions while thaicom 6 hasnot beam same as thaicom 5. so many channels will be lost in western asia.
