Koreasat 5 113 degs Ku band recevied in Chennai
This is about my reception of Koreasat 5 at 113 degrees East, during Mid 2010. In this satellite there is a popular DTH package of Philippines called 'Dream Tv'. When I checked this satellite some time back signal was like earlier though some frequencies were changed.

Official foot print of Koreasat it covers only upto eastern parts of Thailand with 40dBw.

Coverage map of Koreasat 5 from official http://www.kt.com/ website.


Signal can be received in Chennai which is in South India. Normally I get signal around 35-45% but at the day when I took this photo it was cloudy and this is what I am getting. I was using a warped dish and still managed to get this much. Which means signal is quite strong and anyone can easily get them.

Earlier Dream Tv was on Agila @146 degrees which had very wide coverage than what was showed on its official foot print map. That made its reception possible even in south India with moderate sized dishes of around 6 feet. Due to piracy and other things Dream Tv changed its encryption and also switched to Koreasat. I guess the reasons may be aging Agila which didnt had any replacements. Now 146 degrees slot is empty without any satellites.

Yes LNB15k, You are quiet right about Agila2. It was very strong in those days and i received it in Colombo, Sri lanka. There was some embeded receiver called Trueman and i could watch Above.
