It is part of a large geostationary satellite due to launch at the end of 2016
I assume at this stage all the equipment is more or less ready waiting
for the launch. It is listed on this page as late 2016:
Many European stations are getting ready to receive signals with a
slightly modified TV LNB, connected to around a 1m dish. Narrow band
uplink will probably need a 1m dish and a 10W amplifier on 2300Mhz.
Wideband DVB-S uplink is possible but I assume it would need a much
larger dish. There is a narrow band DVB-S format with reduced
bit-rate. I have lots of experience in this area.
