a malfunction....

If you look at 83w Ku on sat signature, there is what looks like it may be a beacon of some sort at 11800 H...
It has been there all day... Maybe they are using that to remain in control of the satellite?

It happened since yesterday afternoon. I used the New York State Lottery color bars with the running clock to rest our clocks after a power outage.

a lot of tv engineers are posting that SES is unable to communicate with AMC-9.  A lot of those posts also have RIP but I"m sure it may be too soon to be saying that unless it was a backup SCP that failed.

Good news is that some capacity is next door at 85W that SES might be able to get emergency approval to slide that satellite over and have it ready in a few days for some restoration.

search social media.  When something like this happens, you can usually confirm or find more detailed information.

I imagine we'll learn a lot more about AMC-9 from SES's mouth on Monday if they file an application to move a satellite to 83W rather than just move their customers elsewhere permanently.

The Luken mux moved to SES 1 and it appears that the Televisa NS3 mux moved to SES 2.

Subject: Satellite Service Restoration
 

Dear Affiliate Partners,

 

Thank you again for your patience as our engineering team worked to overcome today’s unexpected satellite outage.  The issue with our bird, AMC-9, appears to have been catastrophic and after working on the issue throughout the day, SES does not hold out hope for its return to service.  As such, we have worked with SES to find and test a new satellite home for Luken’s feeds. 

 

Our feeds are now located at SES-1, 101 degrees West.  Technical sheets with all specific details for each network are attached to this email.  It appears that the signal is potentially stronger than we were previously delivering.  All C-band satellite affiliates will need to swing their dish 18 degrees to the West , change the elevation three degrees and peak and pole.  Upcom receivers will need to change their frequency from 4000 to 3900.  Sencore receivers will need to change their L-band frequency from 1150 to 1250. 

 

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes you. We will be contacting each affiliate individually throughout this process to make sure their transition goes as smoothly as possible. Thank you again for your patience during this difficult time. We appreciate your continued affiliation.

AMC 6 recently arrived at 85W.  Perhaps they will move it to 83W.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
