Re: [MSG-1] Configuring TC V2.14.4 .ini's.
Your posting below on the Subject title above, of which many of us are aware, has led me to do a bit of 'looking back' and I've found a comparison of various power outputs used over the years by satellites transmitting EUMETCast that I produced.
Of course in the early days we had DVB-S so reception was not as 'critical.'
Then DVB-S2 with VCM.
The wider bandwidth of HVS reducing the link margin.
Anyway, I hope the attached document and image will be of interest.
I see that we went from Eurobird 9 to Eutelsat 9A.
That location is now the home of Eutelsat 9B - much 'stronger' than Eutelsat 10A.
And receivable on the same dish.
