Dear EUMETCast-Europe User,
 
Further to our email below, please be informed that the EUMETCast Europe back-up transponder changed from E21B to HB13 on 1 February 2021, as planned.
 
Please find attached the latest version of TD 15 which has been updated with the new official backup satellite parameters for HB13.
 
The EUMETCast web page has been updated accordingly (EUMETCast | EUMETSAT Website), as well as the EUMETCast Knowledge Base (EUMETCast - EUMETSAT Public Confluence (atlassian.net)).
 
As mentioned previously, we plan to perform a test activation of the EUMETCast Europe service on HB13 – exact dates and further details will be provided in due course.
 
Best regards,
 
EUMETSAT User Service

Dear EUMETCast-Europe User,
 
EUMETSAT operates EUMETCast Europe in Ku-band via EUTELSAT 10A (E10A). In case of an unrecoverable failure of E10A, the EUMETCast Europe Service will currently be continued on EUTELSAT 21B (E21B) in the 21° East orbital position.
 
As already announced via our Weekly Operations Schedule, starting from 01/02/2021, the EUMETCast Europe restoration (back-up) capacity will be migrated from E21B to Hotbird 13 (HB13) in the 13° East orbital position. This means that from 01/02/2021, in case of an unrecoverable failure of E10A, the EUMETCast Europe Service will be continued on HB13.
 
A test activation of the EUMETCast Europe service on the foreseen HB13 transponders is planned in Q1 2021. During the test, the same data streams will be available on both satellites (E10A and HB13). Further details will be provided in due course.
 
For technical details on Hotbird 13 transponders and downlink parameters, see our web news: Migration of EUMETCast Europe restoration capacity to Hotbird 13 | EUMETSAT Website
 
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
 
Best regards,

13E is just a backup facility for EUMETCast in case 10E fails. They are testing currently.

No. As it's named it's a backup.
Means if Eutelsat 10A is in trouble or broken the EumetCast service is provided via
Hotbird 13.

Hello Heiko,

>- Charles Bukowski -

This is rather relevant at the moment - is it not?

He also said:

You begin saving the world by saving one man at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.

Food for thought, right now?

Regards,
John
