    All subscribers that receive out of Market locals via a Local Waiver, and or RV/Truckers Exemption before the Cities list was shrunk to 6 cities will have to be switched to one or two of the 6 Cities that are now the only OOM locals that are to be carried full Conus.

    All other cities are to be relocated to spot beams that will be be able to be received by the in Market Subscribers.

    Looking at that map I can't see why they couldn't put up a western montana beam (I THINK the satellite has room for more beams), then we could get Missoula DMA locals.

    Ah, rain fade is back. Serious low pressure system came in with fairly moderate rain. All those 100 plus readings have dropped to low sixtys (Dishplayer 125 scale with 6' dish). Some audio channels are dropping out on Tsp. 4 at 61 reading. While we only had a limited number of transponders on E 4, it was very strong, with rain fade not a problem. I need to re-peak to get the balance between E6 and E7 to get those 100's up a to the 120's. E5 at 110 disappeared all together, which is normal from here for this large of a low pressure storm (also a 6' dish).:(

    I hope they double power all the transponders at 119 by May 1st.
    Had terrible rain fade Sunday night on HBO, Showtime and several others. I noticed that these Tp's as well as others are in single power mode. Come on Dish lets get that signal boosted up!!!!!

    I agree w/ Ronster. I'm in the Syracuse, NY area and TP4 is only at 70-74 on a clear day, while the others are generally around 90-105. I did not have this problem before E VII. Dish better fix this or there will be quite a few problems with rain fade around the country.

    I just dont understand why E* does not double power all its 21 transponders at 119. With only E 6 and E 7 up there they can boost em all and have pleanty of room on E 7 for spots and then some left over in case of a failure. I have a very low reading on tp4 and other low readings on tp's 2,5,6 and 8. Thanks for any reply or explanation.

    Here on the reservation outside DC TP 4 is at about 95 (on a 7200) a bit lower than others but not dramatically.

    Same problem here on the west side of Rochester. All the transponders at 119 on my receiver are at least 87 percent on the single powered transponders except transponder 4 and it is only 75 percent. All the Double Powered transponders are in the 110-124 range.
