Here is a KA-SAT beam coverage map I found some time ago.  
KA-SAT
Does anyone have the current beam map as actually manufactured ?

Will this new satellite bring any benefits to those of us with the existing Ka service?

I would be interested to know if Ka band users on existing Hotbird will be able to operate on the new KA-SAT.

I just hope the legacy hardware is compatible.

If the new equipment has only one cable to the antenna and does not need any polarisation adjustment how does it work?.  

Is Ka-SAT circular polarisation ?  Is KA-SAT linear polarised with each individual beam pre-twisted so that the signals arrive with the polarisation approximately parallel to or at right angles to the local ground level?

Best regards, Eric.
