The latest position of a satellite belonging to the Astra fleet begins to do more and more interesting. New transponder is activated Astra 2C (31.5 E) on the frequency 12.168 GHz, pol. V, SR: 27500, FEC: 3 / 4, where the Clear programmed three sites: two television bTV and Eurotica TV and one radio Radio Bravo. Their support is a Bulgarian company Neterra. Reception in Poland is very strong, quiet enough antennas of 60 cm.


After several years of difficult access to Bulgarian bTV channel, you can again freely receive that station. I recall that he was not yet uncoded bTV reachable only from the satellite NSS 5 (57E). Once station broadcast on Sirius 4.8 E bTV is one of the most popular channel in Bulgaria, the stations are offering movies, series, sports and other entertainment programs.

Eurotica TV is a channel of sextelefonami, is also known from Astra (19,2 E) and Hot Bird (13E). Radio Bravo is a Bulgarian music station.

For all sites used the same set of PIDˇw as the transmission of satellite NSS 5 (57E), tp. 371 (12.551 GHz, pol. V, SR: 9404, FEC: 3 / 4). Lack of a Bulgarian channel VTK, perhaps its inclusion is a matter of time.

31.5 E satellite position is to support the television market in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, including the Caucasus region. A few days earlier, the Ukrainian has been activated the transponder containing 15 channels free to air. Their message is carried in DVB-S2/QPSK.
