    Re: Eutelsat W3C

    Another New Launch date for Eutelsat W3C is 2011 Oct 15 16:15 Hrs ???

    2011 Oct 7

    Launch window is 08:20-08:47 GMT

    Eutelsat W3C Launch
    CZ-3B/E, Xichang SC
    Comsat for geosynchronous transfer orbit. Time is ±3 min. http://www.zarya.info/Calendar.php


    Eutelsat W3C will be located at 16° east longitude and will provide services Central and Eastern Europe, the French-speaking Indian Ocean Islands, and provide data services to Africa.

    So it may launch tomorrow or next week we will have to wait & see nothing on the Eutelsat site as to the exact launch date.

    Maybe something has been lost in the translation from Chinese to English that arrival means launch ?? ie arrival in the geostationary orbit we see tomorrow.

    China successfully launched Europe's Eutelsat-W3C satellite on 7th Oct

    1501312gpapl8g2i8f8lti.jpg

    After the TG-1 TinGong-1 launch success, China took another step in the international satellite market with the successful launch of the European Eutelsat-W3C communications satellite on Thursday. The launch took place at 08:20UTC using a Long March 3B/E (Chang Zheng-3B/E) launch vehicle.


    Chinese Launch:

    According to Eutelsat, the new W3C satellite will provide significant new capacity for broadcasting, telecommunications and broadband services, replacing the existing 3 Eutelsat satellites at 16 degrees East. This is a leading position for broadcast markets in Central and Eastern Europe, and also provides video services to the islands in the Indian Ocean.

    Long March 3B/E used in this launch was introduced in 1996, it has a 13ton LEO and 5.5ton GTO capacity. Today's launch is the 17th of the Long March 3B series.

    Re: Eutelsat W3C

    Eutelsat W3C now in full commercial service at 16 east just 5 weeks after the satellite was launched.

    Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) today announced the full entry into commercial service of the powerful W3C satellite at 16° East.

    The transfer of all traffic, including over 480 television channels, onto W3C from the EUROBIRD™ 16, W2M and SESAT 1 satellites was completed this morning by Eutelsat’s control centre, working in close collaboration with clients and providers of uplink services.

    With the high-capacity W3C going on-line at 16° East, Eutelsat is further equipped to service dynamic satellite broadcasting markets in Central Europe and Indian Ocean islands. Over 11 million homes in Central Europe and 500,000 in Indian Ocean islands are already equipped to receive broadcast services from this long-standing Eutelsat neighbourhood.

    All transponders now working at new elevated signal levels on Eutelsat W3C,

    W2M will move from 16 east to a new location soon,

    Sesat-1 & HotBird-4 / EuroBird 16 will remain at 16 east in an inclined orbit for professional feeds.
