EIRP coverage (dBW)

C-band, global (A6)
C-band, large hemispheric (A4)
C-band, narrow hemispheric (A8)
Ku-band, spot (A9)

The satellite provides slightly better performance than the standard Gorizont: at least 1 dBW more in C-band and 3 dBW in Ku-band (see footprint maps for details). This improvment could be due to a little more power available, perhaps because of the lack of auxilliary (X- or L-band) transponders.
