Ran across this post by TS Reader about amateur ops running video on the new 26E satellite Ku transponder.

"Es’hail-2 at 26 degrees east is a Ku/Ka-band comsat which also has an amateur radio payload with an 8 MHz S-band to Ku-band transponder. Many users are running H.265 video in just 250 k-symbols!"
