Eutelsat accuses Iran of jamming 2 Persian-language news satellites

French satellite giant Eutelsat has claimed that two of its satellites are being jammed by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Eutelsat is among the largest satellite providers in the world and broadcasts thousands of television and radio stations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. In a statement released Friday (opens in new tab) (October 7), Eutelsat claims that it has “experienced interference on two of its satellites” and that this interference “originated from Iran”. Typically, this is accomplished by bombarding a satellite and/or its receivers with noise at the same radio frequency as its intended transmissions.
