Re: Meteosat 8 - Meteosat 7 co-channel interference

Guy Martin <agm@...>

Assuming Met 8 and Met 7 operate on the same raw data downlink frequ, Eumetsat's dishes are obviously large enough to have a beamwidth of less than 3.4deg.
The raw data downlink for Met 7 is I believe on 1697Mhz and Ch1 & 2 on 1691 & 1694.5, so no co-channel there .

Cheers Guy

Subject: [MSG-1] Meteosat 8 - Meteosat 7 co-channel interference

So with Meteosat-8 at its operational 3.4W position (according to
very recent Kepler data), is anyone seeing co-channel interference
between the two satellites, or does that possibility no longer exist
now that there is no direct dissemination? What about ranging?

BTW: I missed a few segments last night - don't know why.
