SES 11/EchoStar 105 is set to launch on Oct 11th

Look for feeds of the launch live.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the SES-11/EchoStar 105 hybrid communications satellite to replace the AMC-15 and AMC-18 satellites.

As SES-11, the spacecraft’s C-band capacity will provide replacement capacity for SES of Luxembourg for AMC-18.

EchoStar Corp. of Englewood, Colorado, will market the Ku-Band transponder capacity, with coverage of the 50 U.S. states, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, as EchoStar 105, replacing AMC-15.

I actually was able to watch this launch live, it was very cool. I would recommend watching the next launch if you get a chance too. The SpaceX Falcon 9 separated from the rest of the rocket like 8 minutes in, and they showed it landing perfectly upright on a ship in the Atlantic called "of course i still love you". This Falcon was previously used in another launch, so that was cool to see a re-usable rocket.

Anyways SES 11/EchoStar 105 in successfully in its geostationary orbit now.

EchoStar 105/ SES-11 Successfully Launched on SpaceX’s Falcon 9
Written on 12 Oct 2017

Dual-mission satellite will enable SES to accelerate delivery of HD and UHD channels using C-band capacity across the US, while Ku-band payload will serve EchoStar’s enterprise, media and broadcast needs

Luxembourg/ Cape Canaveral, 12 October 2017 – SES announced today that the EchoStar 105/ SES-11 satellite was successfully launched into space on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 00:53 CEST. This is the second time SES has launched on a flight-proven Falcon 9 rocket, and the fourth launch with SpaceX. SES was the first commercial customer to launch on a Falcon 9 in 2013.

Built by Airbus, EchoStar 105/ SES-11 is a dual-mission satellite, providing SES with a C-band payload of 24 transponders of 36 MHz, owned and operated by SES, marketed under the name SES-11, and EchoStar with 24 Ku-band transponders of 36 MHz, marketed as EchoStar 105. The high-powered communications satellite replaces C-band capacity for AMC-18 and Ku-band capacity for AMC-15 at the 105 degrees West orbital slot.
