Spot beams map

Below is a map of Thuraya-2 satelite spot beam IDs. Note that these are not ARFCN numbers, i.e. several spot beams with a different IDs may use the same channel and thus have he same ARFCN number.

Spot beam ID is the 10 lowest bits of the LAC. (LAC is split into msc id [15:10] and spot beam id [9:0]). That map shows Thuraya-2 satellite spot beams which has MSC ID = 1.
