On Satbeams updated June 2012: http://www.satbeams.com/channels?norad=29495

Nine, Gem and GO are still on D1 using transponder #9.

But I haven't heard of anyone picking these up here in NZ since they changed something last year.

Thunderflash: On Satbeams updated June 2012: http://www.satbeams.com/channels?norad=29495

Thanks for the interesting info.  Satbeams certainly has a lot more detail than Lyngsat.

However, a scan of Optus D1 doesn't show any of those channels on Transponder #9, which is supposed to be operated by Nine Network Australia.  There are two channels showing as used by the 7 Network, but they seem to be SNG feeds, rather than actual channels.

Using the Satfinder function in my Vu+, tuned to 12398 V, 11909 with FEC 2/3 and 8PSK modulation, I can see a carrier giving a steady 73% AGC, but there is no SNR and consequently no lock.  Maybe this transponder isn't used any more?  Or maybe this is not a valid test?

The signal was power limited to restrict access.

I will check if its still being viewed.

Cheers.  That would be good to know.

I also managed to find a signal here:

Tp#024 Ku 12546 V 16676 3/4 Optus D1 (160° E) FNANZ QPSK DVB-S Nine Network Australia

But the best SNR is only about 30%, so still not enough to get a lock.  Possibly it is just crosstalk from Sky's H-Pol transponder on the same freq. but with a different SR:

Tp#025 Ku  12546 H 22500 3/4 Optus D1 (160° E) FNZB QPSK DVB-S Sky New Zealand

If Tp#024 was viewable here it would provide WIN, GO and GEM, but maybe they've knobbled that too, so far as NZ viewers are concerned?
