    Dish currently has use of only 21 TPs at 72.7 W on Nimiq 5. Dish should have use of all 32 TPs by mid 2011 if not sooner. Eventually 72.7 W will have most if not all EA CONUS programming on it.

    I've kept the TLEs back to #65 loaded into Orbitron 3.71 -
    The last three (2nd 76, 77 and 78) are basically the same -
    78 = 130.3299, 77 = 130.3359, 76b = 130.3694 ... a little further east on the newer ones.

    Going back to the first 76 and before ...
    76a = 130.4067, 75 = 130.5592, 74 = 130.8633,
    73 = 130.8747, 72 = 130.8601, 71 = 130.8723,
    70 = 130.8508, 69 = 130.8663, 68 = 130.8205,
    67 = 133.7402, 66 = 137.0487, 65 = 138.4396

    These would be the locations as of 9:27:33pm 5/7/10 based on each TLE remaining valid. It appears to be gaining since 73. 68-72 would be further east than 73 so there is a fluctuation in there. 65-67 were as the move began.

    The current TLE is the "best" we've seen. Nothing so far would predict the satellite being further east than the 78 TLE.

    The changes means a lot for drifting speed, this time I wouldn't stick with coordinates, they are more prone for instrumental errors and depend of time of the measure and your pick time from Orbitron - eccentricity/inclination still not zero. But RPD - compare last 7 TLEs !
