    The...
    My dearly beloved and historical City of Savannah up on 105?
    I'm only one county away from being in that DMA. Looks like
    I may have to "move" again. ;) :lol:

    Color me dumb, but I was laboring under the obviously
    mistaken impression that new LiLs were going up on
    the wings. WTF??? :eek2:

    Now, since HD has been mirrored to 110, my new dish
    pointed at 61.5 is virtually useless? Can I just point it to
    105 when Sav LiLs light up, or will I need a whole 'nuther
    LNB for ka?

    If Dish would announce some of these changes and
    additions in advance, it sure would help with this
    dumbscriber's pre-planning. It's ironic to me that the
    very first change in my antenna config since I first
    subbed 3 1/2 years ago has become virtually irrelevant
    in less than 2 weeks! My last such screwup, fer crissake,
    was investing in a buggy whip factory one month before
    the first horseless carriage rolled out!

    Piss-poor planning on my part, or what? :rolleyes:

    Nick, you would need at least a 30" dish with a KuFSS LNBF.

    There has been no announcement about putting locals on the side slots. Many, may be gussing that.

    Programming to arrive in January, dishes to arrive in February or March. :D

    Then again, it is interesting to see a company launch local service that requires the installation of a new harder to install and aim dish at the beginning of Winter. Evidently the pride of having 100+ markets by end of year kicked in. This time pride came after the fall.
