good. Steelers fan here
Scott has now posted this on his site:
"I just got a call and an email from a member (thanks) with word that it appears Boeing will be handing off control to DirecTV fully on Wednesday.
If this is true then it is good news. "
Looks like I got my D* service back just in time.
Had service from 1998-2005, then suspended/cancelled the account after getting burned out of my house and having to rent then find a new house.
Took a bit of Comcast sticker shock to realize that D* and Verizon DSL was the better deal all along.
Right on schedule!
Sorry if this has been posted before, but exactly what does "control to DirecTV" mean? Will Boeing be responsible for moving to 102.775, or will DirecTV do this?
Anyone know the protocol?
I believe that Boeing is responsible for moving D10 to it's final position. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
Perhaps it will be all finished moving by Weds.
If Boeing starts the move and gives control to DirecTV... I sure hope DirecTV remembers to stop it from moving...
My Saints looked worse
Yes, they got creamed.
I hope you are right. That would mean, if all else is true, it will be at 102.775 on Wednesday.
Nope, and I'm sure he got a ton of extra hits on his site today.
I googled sw 1-2 and found this. Lets hope they do this to D10.
On April 19th, 2006 the satellite was delivered to DirecTV's control after successful on-orbit testing. SPACEWAY-2 immediately started broadcasting HD locals to DirecTV customers in eight more markets:
Which was exactly his (and his advertisers') likely aim, just like certain yellow journalists of yesteryear, in my humble opinion. :lol:
Anyway, back on topic - if, as I said in another thread, new updated TLEs pop up tonight or tomorrow evening showing D10 parked at 107.775 W with nothing in between, I might have a cow.
I can't see why they couldn't. All of the ground systems aside from the transmitter are most likely already up and running. All they should have to do once they get control of the satellite is fire up the transmitter.
you and me both
You are supposed to carry the couch outside BEFORE you set it on fire.
Sorry, I couldn't resist. House fires aren't a laughing matter. But I'll bet you were nervous for a while on Saturday.
For those of you who don't, know, Dark's avatar is that of WVU where they burn couches in the streets after big football wins or losses.
I was there in 8th grade (my sister was a freshman), and got to see them light half of Sunnyside on fire. They beat PSU for the first time in years.
On topic - It seems that Tom was saying they could broadcast and move at the same time although lefty seems to say they will have to (potentially) do multiple maneuvers in order to get to the correct axis and then move to position.
Finally, having been reading this forum all day, I have to agree with the comparison to crack. Except I have never actually seen, let alone smoked crack, so it is a comparison without experience. So take it for what it is worth.
