    Attached are PDF documents covering the 101, 110 and 119 Satellites:
    1. A listing by Transponder, showing assigned Channels
    2. A listing by Channel, showing the source Transponder
    The documents are fully unprotected so the data may be copied and used as necessary.

    The Transponder Maps will be updated on a regular basis. They will be updated more frequently when there is a significant increase in the number of changes.

    How can a transponder be a spotbeam and national at the same time? I'm talking about the 119 birds. My locals come from 119, spotbeam 28. Also appears that ES2H and HDN are also on that transponder.

    Lancaster,...
    I believe these satellites have the ability to CONUS and Spotbeaming of certain transponders. I think I read that in the technical specs for D10. Not sure about the earlier birds, though.

    I like the transponder info you've attached, gct, but do you have the same info for 99 and 103? That's what I'd really like to see.

    I would double check that... I think 119 locals are carried on 25, 29, and 31. There's one other, but I think it's also an odd-numbered transponder

    DirecTV's spot-beams are:

    20, 12, 4, 28, 18 and 26 from the 101 slot (either DirecTV 4S or 9S)
    23, 25, 29 and 31 from DirecTV 7S at the 119 slot

    Unless anything has changed recently, the Portland, ME locals come from transponder 29.

    Cool. Will you be adding 99 and 103 info for the HD channels?

    Acquiring the transponder data for the 99 and 103 isn't possible now because we're lacking the necessary hardware.

    If I can find someone with theability to snag the data, I would love to meld in that information for the 99 and 103 sats.

    What's needed is a Techno-Trend Model DVB-S2-3200 or DVB-S2-3600 PCI card. See www.technotrend.com
    The cost for the Model 3200 in US $ is about $150.00.

    For those interested, they will also need TSreader[Lite] from www.coolstf.com and the dll file DSStoDBV.dll.

    Also 1-6 on 99b and 1-6 and 17 on 103a for HD locals.

    Will other transponders on those existing Spaceway satellites be employed for local or Conus coverage?

    How can I find out what sat/transponder for HD locals?

    I've been having odd pixellation on my local 6 and 12 (milwaukee HD locals) and everything else seems fine

    nearly all the signal stregnths look good, but I don't know exactly what I'm looking for (i.e. which sat/transponder)

    Can anyone tell me what satellite and transponder/spotbeam that the LA locals in SD and HD are on. I think the HD locals are on a smaller spot beam than the SD locals. Maybe SD are not on a spotbeam.

    Transponder Maps for 101, 110 and 119 Sats updated.

    We're working on getting Transponder Map info for the 99 and 103 sats. (Well, the smart folks are working on that part, not me.)

    Thanks for posting this much needed info. Is there a list or could you tell me how do I find the transponders/sat that my local HD stations come from?

    Lyngsat shows you what channels are on what satellite. Unfortunately, they don't shed any light on transponder assignments.

    Hopefully, we'll be able to post that Transponder Map info for very soon!

    Does anyone know what the source of the daily, updated DirecTV 101 Transponder Map that used to be at DBSForums was, and how it came to be discontinued?

    Clicking on the sat name, instead of "directv usa" will show tp's. 103 and 99 havnt populated there yet.
