ESAT (Ethiopian Satellite TV) has announced that is once again back on air and transmitting direct to Ethiopia for the 7th time starting yesterday.
The new satellite parameters are:
75 degree East
Downlink: 3.480 GHz Vertical (3480)
Symbol Rate: 1.852 Msps (1852)
FEC : 2/3
The regime in Ethiopia has been waging a full scale war on the independent Ethiopian media, and ESAT is one of its primary targets.
The 20-year-old decaying regime has also blocked all independent news web sites, such as this one.
