AsiaSat 2 as Amos 5i goes on 17E
One will be from January 2010 to work on the new orbital position 17 degrees east.
Then the new location, which was assigned to the Israeli satellite operator Spacecom. AsiaSat 2 will be the new position working under the name Amos 5i.
Amos 5i will have the capacity in C band and Ku band. C band transponders will cover virtually the entire African continent. The signal from this satellite will be in the main zone (middle of Africa) to achieve the EIRP of about 40 dBW.
In the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic on the value of EIRP will be about 32 dBW, which means that income in the C zone will be required for our parabola with a diameter of about 2.5 to 3 meters.
Satellite Amos 5i will use the capacity in Ku band, which will have two volumes - Middle East + North Africa and North Africa Vol. In the main zone will EIRP values of 48, respectively. 52 dBW. 52 dBW.
Amos 5i will be used for various telecommunications services, including DTH and VSAT.
In 2010, the new satellite will be delivered Amos 5 is then in position 17 ° E will replace Amos 5i.
With the beginning of Amos 5 are substantially improved coverage - transponders in C band are in Central Europe to achieve a 36 dBW EIPR (reception in the CR / SR with parabolic from the average 1.5 to 2 meters!) And three volumes in the Ku-band values around 33 to 35 dBW (required parabola diameter from 2.5 to 4 meters).
Given the proximity of other telecommunications satellites Eutelsat W2 and Eurobird 16A and Astra (19.2 ° E) may be frequency collision
