There have been some reports of some changes in reception of Astra 2F in some areas, the following were received/reported by website members on 08/01/13, more to come and more are most welcome and of course my forum also has info, do join/sign up
Spain, Algorfa near Torrevieja - Just to report signal good on 1.1m dish. Neighbour having problems with ch4 hd and ch5 on 1.0m. - "John D"
France, Biarritz - In Biarritz we have lost C4 HD,and channel 127 even in good weather. All other Astra 2F channels - Ch 5, 5+1, 5 USA etc are still OK, but with reduced performance - Strength 85%, Quality 50%. We have a 90 cm Triax dish. _ "John"
Spain, Costa Blanca - No change in reception at all on the Costa Blanca - "UKTV CB Dave"
Spain, Costa Blanca, Javea - No change noted here in over the past few days. Still have a stonking signal with high quality. I am using a 2.4 metre prime focus dish which of course is a great help. I think the signal levels would have to drop quite a lot before it would make a great deal of difference. - "Pavlo"
Spain, Costa Blanca, Denia - Well, last night, I noticed picture breaking up then non at all on BBC2 and BBC1 Standard Definition around 9:30pm GMT. This was not the case before the weekend. However, I continued to receive both HD signals satisfactorily. I now have a First Strike FS1 Satellite Meter, and also Technomate 5402 HD in addition to my SKy HD box so will carry out some more accurate surveys. 1.15m offset dish, Black Supreme LNB, 35m cable run to Sky HD box. - "John"
The reports below were received/reported up to and including 02/01/13
Iceland - Astra 2F has a little lower signal than 1N but still it is 100% with 80 cm dish in all of Iceland and on east part of the island 45 cm Sky dish will work in most weather, 2F is around 3db less than 1N - "Ari"
France, Biarritz - With a 60 cm Sky Dish, C4 HD and all the other channels that were transferred to Astra 2F have been capable of reception in very good weather conditions only, however, I installed a Triax 90 cm dish. the actual dimensions are 85cms x 92cms. I can now receive all the Astra 2F channels with good reception. For example, reception for C4 HD is Strength 85% and quality 80% on a dry morning with blue skies. In wet and cloudy conditions strength drops to 80% and quality to either 60% or 50%. Even so, the channels are of an acceptable viewing quality, in contrast the channels that still transmit from Astra 1N are at 100% strength and quality under all weather conditions, this is better than with the 60 cm dish, thus there is no doubt that the enlarged dish has led to a significant improvement - "John"
France, Draguignan, 30kms north of St Tropez - 80cm dish, quad 0.3db LNB, since Channel 5 moved on the new satellite I had to re adjust very carefully my dish to have the reception back, the Thomson standard sky box gives a quality signal of 66 on channel 5 when it's around 100 on E4. I can watch all the channels for now, I had all the frequencies in the afternoon but as soon as the sun went down, I lost channel 5, 5 USA and 5*. 4 Seven is not lost but almost impossible to watch because of pixelisation. The rest is fine. - "Cyril"
Germany, Thuringa, Erfurt - 1.2m opticum dish, grundig 0.3db twin lnb, 60% strength, 40% quality from itv and channel 5 transponders on 2F mid afternoon, will monitor into the evening - not constant, have upgraded to a inverto black ultra lnb, which improved things a little, reception of Astra 2F channel 5, itv and channel 4 transponders, using sky hd 1tb box is ok until about 7pm (local german time) at which point itgoes until around 11pm (local time) when it starts to function again, haven't checked what happens through the night but it is a little broken at 7am although by 7:30 all fine all day until 7pm - "Phil"
Spain South, Granada Coast - 1.3m dish, RT quad lnb, no 2f reception at all - "Costaman"
Portugal Central, Lower slopes Serra do Açor mountains - Fortec Star 2.4 metre petal dish (elevation "scrapes" distant trees on distant height, 30m coaxial cable run, Sky box, steady reception of the "Fives" in clear weather or light cloud, pixelation to total loss in heavy cloud. My friend 5km away with 1.5m dish and open/clear elevation sight-line and short cable run reports "no problems" - "Nimrod"
Germany, Koblenz - 45cm Technisat Multytenne dish, perfect reception of transponder 11.023 H - "Multytenne Owner"??
Spain, Murcia, Puerto de Mazarron - 1.35m dish, So far so good here I still have all channels here, I can confirm I still have Channel 5 SD, 4Seven SD, and Channel 4 HD - "John"
Czech Republic, Prague - Gilbertini 1.5m dish, Technisat S2 receiver, 11.023 H no signal just lock, all other 10.964 H, 10.994 H, 11.052 H, and 11.126 V approx 3.9dB half of 1N but still reception very good, actually no visible change So I am happy until 2E change - "Michal"
Austria, near Zell am See - 78cm Triax dish, inverto black quad lnb, sky hd receiver, no reception from 2F, 1N comes in at between 60 and 70 percent strength and quality - "Phil" (the same "Phil" as below)
Germany, Erfurt - 90cm dish is giving an image at certain times of the day, mainly pixelated though, not good enough for watching and not for all day reception - "Phil" (the same "Phil" as above)
Spain, Valencia - 1.0m dish, getting all channels, 10.964 H S85%/Q70%, 11.023 H S85%/Q40%-11% stable - "Eddie" again
Spain, North, San Sebastian - Triax 88 dish, Black Inverto LNB, I'd like to update the info I gave you before, I've been testing the new channels on 2F (4Seven, 5 USA, USA+1 and 4HD on my Sky+HD receiver and the news is that I can pick them up with clear skies, it's right on the limit and as soon as it gets overcast the picture starts to break up and if it's raining (no need for heavy rain) it even becomes impossible to lock the channels, the HD channel is even more critical and it has a cleared tendency to breaking up - "Josh"
Spain, Fuente del Conde which is almost exactly where Malaga, Cordoba, and Granada provinces meet - 1.2m dish and a Humax Fox-Sat HD receiver, I did a Freesat tune yesterday and the channels that you listed as having moved show up on the channel listing but all have the same "No or bad signal" message when I select them - "Richard"

Technisat HDFS "reception level" 82, Quality 3.8dB (bar shows red, occasionally yellow) - reception possible with no pixelation (midday, will check over time if this varies). For comparison, a non-migrated Astra 1N transponder, e.g. BBC1 (south) on 10.817MHz, reception level 101, Quality 10.1dB - "Mark"
Italy, Taino, 55km NW of Milan - 1.0m offset dish, FlyCom LNB, Humax HD5600S receiver, all channels received with strength 80%, quality 100% over 24 hours - "Derek"
