    OK guys, I started putting together this Acronym list, but I'd like to get some opinions on items that should be added or subtracted. I've already taken a few off from the original list and added several, but if everyone could take a minute or two to look it over and share your thoughts. I think there's way too many on it currently and would like to get rid of some, so speak now please.

    Looks good as a start. I don't think you need to cut it down. You have my permission to use Frutiger Condensed at a smaller size and put two columns on each page.

    Suggest adding:
    CIDG == Channels I Don't Get
    TS == thread starter
    SD == Standard Definition Television
    UI==User interface AKA Graphical User Interface.
    SWiM == Single Wire Multiswitch (alternate to SWM)

    Your entry for Ku band is "s"

    Also look at the CE dictionary, I think there's a lot there that can be copied over onto your list.

    One more thing, always use the form DIRECTV not DirecTV.

    lol, I even looked/searched for it.

    I guess after using the new posts button exclusively for years I lose track of where things are.

    Nice work!

    IRD should be Integrated Receiver/Decoder
    Battery is missing the y in the UPS description

    What about ODU- Outdoor Unit i.e. satellite dish?

    also WDCCK could be in there somewhere.

    RB for reverse band?
    BSF band stop filter

    Very nice.

    How about adding, UTH - Under the hood. I know we use it more in the CE area but it does come in handy.

    Let's keep CE-only stuff out of this, in my opinion.

    It's been requested that these be added:

    I don't think this will get added to the quicklinks but the acronyms could be added to our list.

    I'm not against updating the quicklinks, but it has to be done by someone above my pay grade. Before we did this I would want to make sure that someone from the Dish side fully reviewed it and we added their acronyms too.
