    They may have some information on the 77 degree slot on the Tech Forum (Monday, 11/10, at 9 P.M., EST on channel 101).

    Check out the uplink report. This afternoon DISH added 198 channels to the 77 slot (none available to customers at this time). They are adding a lot of HD locals, for example, Cincinnati, Louisville, Little Rock, and the Charleston - Huntington market.

    AGAIN, all these channels are up on the satellite in the test mode. We have no idea if they are all staying but some dealers (like in my market, Cincinnati) are getting information that our HD locals will be available on Nov. 19th.

    I did have a dish for 61.5 but last week I moved it to 77 when I got a call from my local dealer. I get my national HD channels from 129 so I did not lose anything except for 5 PI channels by moving it to 77 degrees. Now I'm all ready for my HD locals when DISH makes them available to customers.
