Unknown Ku signals with beam over Atlantic

If you perform a ku band blind scan somewhere between 65w - 75w, you'll get a ton of signals with symbol rate = 30,000. Data appears to be DVB formatted, but definitely not standard satellite tv stuff. I thought it was coming from Viasat 2, but that bird only has ka transponders so had to scratch it. I thought it might be dtv mexico, but like I said, it just ain't video packets. Looked at lyngsat and other places but no ku transponders with the correct symbol rates.

Anyone know what these are? Provider is "AOL", but it isn't America Online. I think it might be "Aircraft Online" from Gogo.

Has to be them. Probably internet and in-flight entertainment. Maybe someone can write a program like ip cleaner to extract the in-flight movies. :lol: Gotta be thousands of flights and each is showing different content. :watchingtv
