Hello, any know what the uplink frequencies are for Astra 28.2e and 19.2e I think they are in the 14 or 29 Ghz band range but can't find any exact listing for transponders and does anyone know if they multiplex at the satellite or on the ground - I don't want to be a pirate BTW !

The uplink bands used to be on the SES Astra site. IIRC they uplink in the 14GHz range.

I think most of the multiplexing is done on the ground, although some of the Eutelsat craft have "Skyplexing" gear on board so some stuff can be done on the craft.

Chances are the info has been removed as a security precaution, especially after the Iranian jamming attacks on the Eutelsat birds over the last couple of years.

Guessed as much, I couldn't find any info in the usual places :confused, thanks for the info on Skyplexing I remembered about it now. Who remembers the Dutch pirates on Eutelsat 27.5W or was it Intelsat ?? in the early 80's analogue :) ! I still/did have a tape somewhere ......

Thanks,

Dave.
