Sirius W, formerly known as Sirius 1, launched on
August 27, 1989, as Hughes Space and Communications' first satellite.
The Marcopolo 1 was then sold in December 1993 to
Nordic Satellite AB in Sweden,
which until 2000 operated as Sirius 1 at 5°E.
Marcopolo 1 was subsequently moved to 13° W, renamed
Sirius W, and had 5 K u band transponders.
Marcopolo 2 (Thor 1)
Launched on August 18, 1990, Marcopolo 2 had 5 K u band
It was then sold in July 1992 to Norwegian Telenor who
renamed it Thor 1.
It was located at 0.8°W, then decommissioned in January
2002, and in November of the same year it was moved to 7.4°W and reactivated
with digital test signals beaming towards Scandinavia.
Then Marcopolo 2 was sent into an unwanted orbit in
early January 2003.
Thor 2 was launched on May 21, 1997, and retired in
2008 despite remaining in inclined geostationary orbit until January 2013 when
it was de-orbited into cemetery orbit.
The Thor 2 weighs approximately 1,467 kg, contains 15 K
u band transceivers,
with 3 spare parts, and is powered by 40 Watts Moving Wave
Thor 3 was a satellite used by Canal Digital in the
North for DTH services.
It was launched on June 9, 1998 with an expected life
of 12 years, and was located at 0.8°W.
The Thor 3 had 14 active K u transponders, powered by
47 watt travel-wave amplifiers (TWTAs).
The satellite has been targeted in Scandinavia, Eastern
Europe and parts of Central Europe; Thor 3 is still in operation and is in an
inclined geostationary orbit but has been pointed towards the Middle East.
Thor 3 was then replaced by Thor 6 in June 2010.
Intelsat 10-02 (Thor 4)
Intelsat 10-02 was launched on June 16, 2004, located
at 1°W, and then moved towards Central Europe and the Middle East.
Thor 5 was launched on February 11, 2008, when it was
first planned to be called the Thor 2R' satellite, but Telenor named it Thor 5.
Thor 5 has 24 transceivers in the K u range.
Thor 6 was launched from the Guyana spaceport on
October 29, 2009,
and Telenor Satellite Broadcasting announced on December 15
that Thor 6 has completed all necessary tests in orbit and ground and will
begin commercial service in late December.
Thor 6 has 36 K u band transponders, and it also
provides live TV services to the home from the 0.8° West orbital position, then
replaced Thor 3.
Built by SSL, Thor 7 was successfully launched by
Arianespace from the Kourou Spaceport on April 26, 2015.
Serving primarily marine customers and with a total
capacity of 9 Gbit/s, it was launched in tandem with the Italian/French defense
satellite Sicral 2.
We can say that the current direction of the Thor satellite is 0.8°W, it is located near the Nile Sat.
Sports competitions transmitted by Thor Sat
Also, Thor satellite channels are encrypted and work on
servers of embedded devices and paid and free syscams.
Many sports competitions are transmitted on the Thor
satellite, such as, the German League,
the Spanish League, the English League,
the Italian League, the French League, the Eredivisie,
the European League, the
European Champions League, the World Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup
Thor-0.8W West is one of the best Sharing satellites
currently, as its sports channels work very steadily and without any problems
on Sharing servers (Forever, Orca, Vancam, Gesher, Vanilla and regular CCAM
It also works in SD and HD quality, which broadcasts
all football matches for the largest European and international tournaments.
Recently, Thor channels broadcast the latest films,
documentaries and children's cartoons.
This is despite the fact that the countries of Hungary,
Romania, the Czech Republic, Sweden and Slovakia suffer greatly from the Corona
This satellite is characterized by the fact that all
its channels work on the free CCAM with complete stability.
HOW TO Catch Thor-0.8W West satellite
Satellite broadcasts are captured on a dish 70 cm and
above, as it is located to the left of Nilesat.
To receive the broadcast signal for the satellite, move
the dish from the back to the left about 4 cm.
Before arriving at the Thor site, you will meet the
Eutelsat 5°W satellite.
You can enter the frequency 11059 H 23700, then move
the dish a little while lifting it up a bit until you catch the Thor satellite
and test all the important frequencies with it.
