With all the excitement with 2E, forgetting the old girl. 2B now at ~27E. 11708V beacon at centre, 11710V beacon to the right. 26E beacon fading now, but still easily visible to the left.

Seems to be homing onto its resting place if that's indeed its official spot. Maybe tomorrow sometime.

2B Marker on 11708V beacon, I'm on 31.5E exactly.

Just seen your update solly. Beacon must be quite strong to catch it already at 31.5E

Hope so. Both old, but maybe 2B footprint more favourable for West Europe than the tight 1G one? (if it keeps the existing beams).

it replace 31.5e ?
I think the destination is 31.4E so probably more of a backup while waiting for 5B to launch?

With Astra 5B launching soon I can't see it being used much except for backup.

Astra 2B (inclination 1.7°) has switched on some empty transponders: 11758 H, 12149 H, 12461 H, all 27500 3/4 DVB-S.
There may be more, several peak I can't lock (yet).
