The topic name is not so clear, let me expain in details.

For example, we can see a lot of regional nordic europe radios uplinked at Asiasat 100.5E (Radio suomi, radio finland, radio nederland and some others).

Or, some denmark tv and radio channels at 49E ?

There are other examples too...

But I can't get main idea, in case of 100.5E, it targets mostly asia. Are there so many expats from finland or nederland in asia?

What is purpose of such broadcasts?

Dunno, but the Finns seem to love Thailand and I don't think YLE broadcasts on SW any more.
