CHINASAT 9A is a Chinese satellite that was supposed to enter service in geostationary orbit over the equator at 101.4 degree east longitude. The satellite's 24 Ku-band transponders are designed to provide television broadcasts and other media services to China Satcom customers in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Based on the DFH-4 satellite design built by the China Academy of Space Technology, Chinasat 9A was intended to be China's first domestically-made communications satellite for direct-to-home television broadcasting. Unfortunately the launch of CHINASAT 9A satellite atop a Long March 3B rocket did not reach its planned orbital destination.
