SO-35 transmitted 4 W into a two-turn RHCP helix at 2.25 GHz.  On a 
4.5 m dish with helix feed and preamplifier, connected to a standard 
PAL/FM satellite receiver, the "sparklies" were mostly gone at 20 
degrees elevation.  The following news release was published shortly 
after reception of the first video:

"Live PAL colour TV images of the earth coming from Sunsat"
