Directv Beam Footprint Library The Master Index to the Beam Footprint Library Files is HERE June 2011 This library replaces the original Beam Footprints begun in August, 2009. Those original Beam Footprints were provided as static JPG files. This new generation of Beam Footprints is presented as GoogleEarth media, allowing the viewer an unlimited interactive ability to modify the data display. Thanks to Doug Brott for his support in providing a repository for all this data. Viewing this data requires the Google Earth application. The free application is available at http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge The Satellite Beam Footprint Library is the creation of dbstalk user spear61. His initiative and creativity culminated with these Beam Footprint Maps. The beam contour maps reflect the satellite operating at full power. Reception in this case is probably good out to the isobars in the low 50’s dBw.
