Dutch radio stations hit by satellite technical fault - 28-January-2010, 20:35

Various Dutch radio stations have been hit by a technical fault on Eutelsat’s W2 satellite at 16 degrees East. The problem happened at around 2000 UTC last night, when all signals from the satellite disappeared. Some Dutch stations use the W2 satellite to feed a number of FM stations, and not all of them have an ISDN backup feed. Among the Dutch stations affected are 100%NL, Business Nieuws Radio and Slam!FM. The satellite feeds are also used by cable companies.
100%NL told Media Network that as of 1000 UTC the problem is ongoing. Eutelsat says in a statement that “Immediate actions have been taken in order to propose alternative capacity to all customers affected by the anomaly, and services are progressively being restored.” Eutelsat says the cause of the problem is “under full investigation by Eutelsat in collaboration with the satellite’s manufacturer, Thales Alenia Space.”
A number of broadcasters in other countries, primarily in Central Europe, are also being affected by the same problem.
