    May you be healed soon! How about both you healed and D11 parked, like tomorrow? :)

    Cheers,

    Alas, I honestly do not know.

    Some data points from the past: DIRECTV has been known to drift satellites at .1°/day tho D11 drifted to 100.7° at a bit over .2°/day. So in roughly 6 days from the start, D11 could be home. :)

    Lets hope it started 5 days ago ;)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Thanks Sixto. I really hope we can all just be patient and wait for some good news from our good friends monitoring the TLEs.

    For what it is worth, my local video store was told Mobile, AL would get HD locals on September 17.

    gewi,

    Where did you hear that one from? I've emailed the local channels and they don't know anything about a launch date. We were also told in 2006 we would have HD locals.

    I would take a closer look at the smiley at the end of his post. Does it mean anything, or doesn't it?

    I know, I know...

    The sun will come out, tomorrow, bet your botton dollar, come what may...

    Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow, you're only a day away.


    Where's Eagle PC when you need him??? I hope he's monitoring the Transponders..

    It's getting real close!!!


    We're going on a trip, We're going on a trip. It's thrilling to be filling with such wide anticipation.

    Packing the suitcases, and counting all the daysez. Nearly as exciting as the actual vacation.

    Are we there yet? Are we there yet? My excitement is getting stronger...
    Are we there yet? Are we there yet? I really cant wait much longer...

    The latest TLE doesn't bear that out. It is forecast to be many miles away and moving at a relative snail's pace. If you look back a few pages, I believe Sixto ran the model out a couple of months at the current course and speed to get to the destination.

    The problem is that the latest TLE isn't very recent so we have no idea if there has been no recent maneuvers or if D11 has been maneuvered into place during an unusually long period of no TLEs, the same as what happened with D10.

    I was actually seeing a signal from transponder 5 for like 30 seconds on 99c and then it dissapeared. I haven't been paying much attention lately, so I don't know if this has been happening for a while now or not.
