    Changed the title of the thread from “12.5°W Eutelsat 12 West B” to “12.5°W Eutelsat 12 West E (incl.)”.
  • This satellite (incl. 0.7°) is now called Eutelsat 12 West E, the former Afghansat 1 / Eutelsat 48D.


    At 12.5°W there is also Eutelsat 12 West F (incl. 4.4°), the former Eutelsat 36A, that has only the 11.7...12.5 GHz band.

    Location: Oss, NL, 5.5°E 51.8°N. Rx: Dr.HD F16, TBS 5927.

  • At 12.5°W there is also Eutelsat 12 West F (incl. 4.4°), the former Eutelsat 36A, that has only the 11.7...12.5 GHz band.

    Eutelsat 12 West F was sent to graveyard orbit about a week ago.

  • Eutelsat dont listet this Position.

    12 West E is at Longitude 177 (at the moment)

  • Please mention the NORAD ID of that satellite at 177. It must be an older one


    Eutelsat 12 West E (NORAD 33460, previous Afghansat at 48°E) is still at 12.5°W.

    And Eutelsat don't care putting old inclined satellites on the site, they only show up in some financial reports.

  • Norad 26927 not 33460

    started as Atlanticbird 2, renamed to Eutelsat 8 West A and later to Eutelsat 12 West B


    I cannot find any technical document about 12 West E , F ..


    Eutelsat 12 West E should be an invention of Flysat, not the official Eutelsat website.

  • COSPAR ID from Eutelsat 12 West E? There should be all Object registred, inkl. graveyard satellites. In this way, the start name of the satellite can also be traced, because a Eutelsat 12 West E and F never started.

    The picture I'll found e.g. at satellitetoday.com but not on the actual site of eutelsat.com not even without the marked 12 West.

  • Since several years, Eutelsat renames its satellites every time it is moved to a new location.

    Each successive satellite on a Eutelsat slot gets the next alphabetic letter, whether it's a newly started satellite or an old one.

    It is confusing yes, and many databases ignore all this renaming. So to summarize:

    26927 2001-042A EUTELSAT 12 WEST B (retired long ago, original Atlantic Bird 2)

    33460 2008-065B EUTELSAT 12 WEST E (now at 12.5 W, original Eutelsat W2M)

    26369 2000-028A EUTELSAT 12 WEST F (just retired, original Eutelsat W4)

    Location: Oss, NL, 5.5°E 51.8°N. Rx: Dr.HD F16, TBS 5927.
    Laminas 120cm 1°W...68°E, T-55 9/13/19/23/28/39/42/45°E.

  • So essentially only corpses at 12.5 W. :10:

  • Let's say oldies, the corpses belong in graveyard orbit!

    Eutelsat wants to keep 12.5°W occupied, not to lose the slot. A satellite must stay there at least 3 months according ITU regulations.

    It's accepted if it's inclined, that is why some inclined satellites move around all the time for this purpose only.


    Today Eutelsat's year report came out, with the same map EnoSat posted, and Eutelsat 12 West E listed with launch date Dec 2008.
