Es’hail-2 is still in a temporary GEO slot, according to the Keps at ~24°E. This is not the final location which planned to be at 26°E
The satellite Es’hail-2, carrying amateur radio transponders, launched from the Kennedy Space Center at 2046 GMT on Thursday, November 15, 2018.
On the AMSAT Bulletin Board Peter Gülzow DB2OSwrites:
During the next 1-2 month they will perform some fine tuning and extensive In-Orbit-Testing in this position not to interfere with other GEO satellites nearby.
Once that is finished, the satellite will slowly be drifting to and stationed at the final position.
However, several “hunters” have already spotted the Engineering beacon from Es’hail-2, so obviously everything looks good and is according to the plan..
The checkout and inauguration of the both AMSAT transponders will be performed after the IOT phase is finished https://amsat-dl.org/p4a-positionining-and-iot
