Spacecom, the operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, is providing broadcast services on AMOS-5 located at 17°E for the Nedbank Golf Challenge, Africa’s top international golf tournament. The tournament is taking place from now until December 8th in Sun City, South Africa.

AMOS-5 is broadcasting the golf tournament, often referred to as “Africa’s Major”, on its pan-African C-band beam.

AMOS-5 was designed and built specifically for the African market with a pan-African C-band beam and three Ku-bands that cover the continent and provide connectivity to Europe and the Middle East. The satellite’s position enables its signal to reach every region in Sub-Saharan Africa.
