#1
Poised to be the largest satellite in the SES WORLD SKIES fleet, SES-4 (formerly NSS-14) at 338° East replacing NSS-7, will enhance what is already the largest neighborhood in the Atlantic. SES-4 will be a hybrid satellite featuring high powered C-band coverage and incremental global capacity which is ideal for video distribution, government and VSAT services. The satellite’s Ku-band payload will provide enhanced coverage and capacity across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Western Africa and Latin America. SES-4 will bring a substantial increase in the total capacity available at 338° East (22*W).

The state-of-the-art spacecraft has been specifically designed for its orbital location, with C-band beams serving the eastern hemisphere of Europe/Africa, full America’s coverage as well as a global beam to support mobile and maritime customers. Four high powered regional Ku-band beams will provide service to Europe, the Middle East, West Africa, North America and South America with extensive cross-strapping between C- and Ku-band transponders providing enhanced connectivity.

Key Facts

Orbital Location - 338° East, (22° West)
Transponders - (36 MHz)
C-band: 52
Ku-band: 72

Designed as the largest, most powerful satellite in the SES fleet, SES-4 is being built for SES WORLD SKIES, a subsidiary of SES. SES-4 will expand and enhance SES WORLD SKIES' ability to provide Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) to the Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Scheduled for launch on January 28th, 2012, SES-4 is designed to be located at 338 degrees east, one of the most highly demanded orbital locations for transatlantic traffic.

Yes, not a good news for those from Indian sub-continent. But, for sat/FTA lovers from Middle-east, a lot to expect for..

I am getting four sat's on a single 90cm dish with a span of 7W to 26E. I can track 22W easily adding a sub to it, and can expect some FTA channels... :happy:
