Eurobird 9 Replaces Sirius 2

Antenna sizes for Eurobird

SVT Europa and Radio Sweden are switching from the Sirius 2 satellite to Eurobird 9.

The switch will be made on December 8th, and will affect Radio Sweden’s satellite channels to Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

Satellite dishes will have to move from 5 degrees East to 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.

The new SVT Europa channel will be on 11.842 GHz/V FEC: 3/4 Symbol Rate 27,500 Mbits.
