Network Configuration Data Sheet

C-Band Satellite:   AMC-8 (139* West)

Transponder:   T/3 (Vertical Polarized)

XDS Receivers are Pre-Tuned to:
L-Band Receive Frequency: 1392350 kHz / Symbol Rate 1490000 sps / FEC (Forward Error Correction) ¾

Additionally: for the Satellite Migration to AMC-18/SES-11… the XDS Receivers are also Pre-Tuned to: 1434450 kHz / Symbol Rate 1490000 sps / FEC 3/4

A frequency table is created within the receiver for both carriers!  Thus, when a receiver loses signal lock, it will continue to alternate back and forth between each frequency in the table until it acquires a LOCK under either one.


This XDS-PRO receiver must be connected to a full-time internet connection. This provides diagnostic testing and updates from Learfield and also provides internal automatic streaming audio failover.
