Can anyone confirm if the transponder in Icebergs post is still active? I can't find this sat. 85 (AMC2)-12194 H 3978

If not any active transponder would be great. Thanks:)

It was down last night, and it's down right now, too. Can't say the last time I saw that test card recently. Probably sometime last week. It's not exactly my favorite program, but it's the only regular thing on this bird ( used to be my TRUE SOUTH bird, so I saw it a lot) .

Haha, glad I could be a benefit while being a pain in the rear.

Thanks to you and Brent, I found it!

The test card is on and off...today when I was looking for other programming about 12 noon CST it was there. In fact I think it was there about 5 when I was scanning the skies....it comes and goes...

I think that test card dips out when there is a lot of activity to save energy on the satellite itself?? I'm guessing? When they load up with feeds, i never see the card.
