The payload, consisting of a repeater and antenna system, received, amplified and retransmitted signals from the ground. The repeater had 4 inputs corresponding to Turkey, Easter Turkey and Central Europe coverages for X polarization and Turkey coverage for Y polarization. The input signals were in the 14.0 to 14.5 GHz band. There were sixteen channels in X and Y polarization dedicated to Turkey (six 72 MHz and other 36 MHz bandwidth channels), three channels in X polarization dedicated to Central Europe (two 36 MHz plus one 72 MHz bandwidth channels) and two channels in X polarization dedicated to Eastern Turkey (one 36 MHz plus one 72 MHz bandwidth channels). The output signals were in the 10.95 to 11.7 GHz band and there were seven channels in Y and eight channels in X polarization dedicated to Turkey (five 72 MHz and others 36 MHz bandwidth channels), four chaneels in Y polarization dedicated to Central Europe (two 36 MHz and two 72 MHz bandwidth channels) and three channels in Y polarization dedicated to Eastern Turkey (two 32 MHz plus one 72 MHz bandwidth channels).
