Is Intelsat 19 transmitting programs yet form 166 degrees East or is it too soon to know.  If so are there FTA programs included?

Hi Dkeeper,

Yes, IS 19 has been transmitting FTA channels for about six weeks. There's 25 or so, mainly Greek, Turkish, Spanish and Arabic. - On 12286H, 12491V and 12726H. - check Lyngsat.

Cheers, Wild Bill.

Thx for that WildBill..  Wonder if any really popular channels will pop up on this bird. 
Thought there might have been a bit more interest.  Maybe the future might hold some good viewing to come.

IS 19 also transmits on C band: Australia Network 3829H SR.13238
                                              BBC World 3940H SR.27690
                                              NHK World 4060H SR.26590

I understand they are harder to receive than they used to be from Intelsat 5.
Is anyone receiving these programmes and if so with what size dish?
Cheers.

According to the charts a 2.2m dish would be the minimum needed to receive Intelsat 19's C band. A 1.8 solid dish might do in good weather. The IS19 Ku band only needs a 60cm.

People have been receiving IS5's C band on 90cm and 1.2m dishes. Australia Network is now broadcasting on IS18 with a slightly weaker signal than IS5's. I don't think BBC World FTA will follow to IS18.

NHK ok on a 1.8m solid in Auckland. BBC only works sometimes... Wish I had a 2.4!
