D-Day at the satellite platform Skylink was set for Wednesday 29.09.2010 2010. At 7:00 pm will be a long time the announced change in the parameters of DVB-S2 multiplex.

The changes concern only the DVB-S2 transponders (freq 12.110 GHz). FEC changes to 3/4, 8PSK modulation on the pilot and the SO. Other parameters remain unchanged.
