    Help Required What is the PLS code for 12.188 H on 4 east ?

    There is no PLS involved. In 4T2, go to T2MI tab, put a checkmark next to PID 4096, and PLP 0 will appear.

    Inmarsat 5F4

    New TLE shows Inmarsat-5 F4 is still moving 0.9°W/day, near 56°E now. Starting to think, almost a year after launch, Inmarsat don't really need this satellite quite yet...

    The moving speed was slowing down, and Inmarsat-5 F4 may have stopped at 58.0°E (listed at ITU), but that's not yet confirmed by TLE.

    SES-14 VA241 January 2018

    The graph I posted comes from the STK software, that retrieves TLE's from AGI's own server. Indeed 30 days after launch, CelesTrack TLE's disappear from "tle-new.txt", then often take a while before popping up again in "geo.txt". An all-in TLE list is here: http://www.n2yo.com/tle2/3line.tle I...
