Hello Everyone,

This is to inform you that Thaicom 5 satellite has now having limited space segment available for African TV channels to be originated from the U.S. If you are interested to reserve it, please let me know immediately before others come before you. You can send me your reply into this forum and I will then send you directly my e-mail. So far, we have one Somaliland  FTA TV channel (Somaliland Space Channel - SLSC) on air right now since March 2008, and in few days, this channel will be encrypted. Also, few days from now, another one will be coming up on the same Thaicom 5 satellite transponder.

On the other hand, two other Somaliland TV channels (Horn Cable TV - HCTV and Universal TV) are in our other Thaicom 5 satellite transponders managed by our partner - RRSat.

Should you have any question, please feel free to send me your message.

Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

I can't understand this.  Thaicom 5 is at 78.5 east and is not visible for an uplink from the USA.  Please provide the uplink coverage beam map and the downlink coverage map (presumably over part of Africa), with uplink G/T contours and downlink EIRP contours.  Please give details of the transponder operating point (PFD required) so people know how much power they will need to transmit.

Please say what frequency bands for the USA(?) uplink and Africa downlink.

Please say how much bandwidth is available.

Please say if you are offering an opportunity to insert extra TV channels into an existing multiplex.  In this case say where is the existing uplink earth station so a new programme maker knows where they will have to connect in.

Is transponder capacity available for purposes other then TV ?

Is reverse cross-strap transponder capacity available if anyone wants to put up a satellite internet access service ?

Best regards, Eric.

Yes, you're right, Eric. Thaicom is located at 78.5 East, so, direct uplink from the US to our satellite is impossible.

So, to do make it possible, clients can use our partners' fiber optic networks to carry their contents to our partners' teleports located in Israel and Greece and uplink to Thaicom 5 is done at any of the two locations.

If the clients TV channels are already in other satellites, then our partners can downlink it and turn it around to Thaicom 5, or if our Thailand teleport can receive the same signal directly from any satellite, then we can turnaround the signal from our teleport in Thailand.

We still have around 36 MHz in our Thaicom 5 global beam extended C-Band (Uplink Frequency: 6.425 to 6.725 GHz and Downlink Frequency: 3.4 to 3.7 GHz), but it's now contended by 5 to 6 companies. I don't know who will the lucky one.

Anyway, we offer this capacity mainly for TV channels only.

For those who are interested, please send me your e-mail addresses so that I can give you all the information Eric was asking me.

I want to post it here but, I don't know how. I have my file in PPT format.

Thanks and best regards.

Many thanks for the information above.

If you have further information, like a PowerPoint presentation or pdf file you are welcome to send it to me by email attachment to eric@satsig.net and I will put a link to it from your message above.  Alternatively if you have the file on your own server somewhere then you can make a pointer link to that file by simply typing the complete url, for example: http://www.example.com/tech-details-directory/tech-document.pdf   Leave a space before and after the url and make sure you include the http:// at the beginning.

You can insert images also, provided they are on a server somewhere. Use the form:
{img}http://www.example.com/images/dish-image.jpg{/img};     Use square brackets, not squiggley ones !

More explanatory plain text is very welcome in your forum messages themselves.  Just type it all in or do cut and paste (ctrl C and ctrl V) from your own source document in plain text format (e.g. using Notepad).   I have set a limit of about 1800 words per message (10000 characters) but can increase this is you want.

Best regards, Eric.
