Just curious, but pulling up the latest FCC filing data on Galaxy 3C that I could locate in the IBFS, I can't find anything that might be used for three of the four transponders listed under beam PR for the DLA service.
While I can find the transponder used for #25 in the FCC data, according to LyngSat the frequencies for beam PR's tps. numbered 2, 5, and 11, 11750, 11810, and 11930 MHz LHCP respectively, are nowhere to be found in the data.
The only transponders listed on those frequencies is under the "North American + Puerto Rico" beam which would of course seem as the logical ones for beam PR, but they show as using linear polarization and have 54 MHz bandwidths.
I can see the downlink transponders which must account for beam Oeste (Latin America) and Sur (South America) in the document just fine. Though apparently having two uplink options to them in both the "extended" C and Ku bands is a little confusing.
But locating what may account for three of the transponders outside of #25 used by beam PR is a problem.
Any suggestions welcomed.
This is a mistery to me also, I have been following this post since some time now and I will add my personal experience on it:
Lyngsat is fed with info given from colaborators, I have given some info in the past.
What Lyngsat has posted some times could be a misinterpretation of some colaborator.
I'm located in South America and I have been able to lock on all the signals:
South, North and PR Beam.
One thing that confuses me is the fact that the bird (G3C) Should be a FSS desiganted by ITU Region 2 (Americas) from 11.7 to 12.2 GHz (Local Oscillator Frequency (LOF) 10.750 GHz), and BSS is designated by ITU Region 2 (Americas) to be 12.2 to 12.7 GHz (LOF 11.250 GHz) segment is allocated to the BSS (broadcasting satellite service).
Maybe there is a special permit to beam BSS in Region 2 with standards of Region 1 (Europe & Africa)....
Regarding the Transponder numbers and frequencies I find that most likely DirecTV Latin America manipulates the software in a way you may think it's two transponders but it might be a partition of a single Transponder.....once again this is my best educated guess.
One question I have I read some months ago you guys where observing the use of DirecTV 5 (Formerly Tempo 1) @ 110W being used to beam some HD channels to PR what else have you guys learned in this regard?
