Eurobird 9 Replaces Sirius 2

Published måndag 26 november 2007 kl 15.43

SVT Europa and Radio Sweden have switched from the Sirius 2 satellite to Eurobird 9. 

The switch affects Radio Sweden’s satellite channels to Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

Satellite dishes should now be aimed at 9 degrees East to receive Eurobird 9. The reason for the change is that the contract with Sirius is expiring, and in January Sirius 2 will be replaced with a new satellite, with a poorer coverage area.

Eurobird 9 has a strong signal and a large coverage area, with means smaller dish antennas will be necessary for reception, for example, in the Canary Islands and the Arabian peninsula.

The contract regarding SVT Europa and Eurobird 9 is for five years, and was agreed upon on November 23, 2007.

  • Satellite: Eurobird 9
  • Position: 9 degrees East
  • Frequency: 11.843 GHz/V (Transponder 56)
  • FEC:  3/4
  • Symbol Rate: 27,500 Mbit/s
