Galaxy 15 Runs Amok

Intelsat seems to have an errant satellite on its hands. Galaxy 15, used for TV communications, decided to go its own way April 5 and now appears to be heading towards AMC 11, another satellite owned by SES World Skies. Galaxy is still receiving and transmitting signals but cannot be steered at this point, so it may be the source of interference once it reaches the same orbit as AMC next week. No specific cable TV providers are mentioned as using either of the satellites, but as both use the same frequency there may be something going on up there around May 23. Consider yourself warned.
