Regional broadcasts

EUMETSAT operates two EUMETCast Satellite broadcasts: EUMETCast Europe in Ku-band via EUTELSAT 10A and EUMETCast Africa in C-band via EUTELSAT 8W. The geographic coverage of a DVB downlink is determined by the characteristics of the spacecraft and its associated antenna beams.

The diagram on the right shows the high-level architecture of the EUMETCast Satellite Services, comprising EUMETCast Europe and EUMETCast Africa.
