    Now that you say that...

    Maybe wednsday last week I noticed that my locals, which come from transponder 21 on the 103(s) screen had changed from a consistant signal of 100 to bouncing around 97-98. Not a big change and I wrote it off as missalignment, but after reading this post I think it may be related.

    Not substantial but it is a change.

    Sixto do you think or know if D* get's the FCC approvals somewhat well before they are released as public information.

    There were no 06/02/2010 dates on that this morning ~8am CDT when I looked, so the wheels they do grind. I would be fairly surprised if that status gets updated on the website before the fax gets sent to D*. . . unless the process is that website is the official status of record and some poor admin assistant at D* just has to sit there hitting refresh all day long. :D

    The grant in question was dated today, so the turnaround doesn't have to be very long.

    It's not fixed yet guys. It's granting authority to begin testing beginning today. Doesn't mean DTV is in testing mode just yet. In fact, as long as we have all zeros on transponders, I would guess upload or amelioration is still in progress.

    The restorative procedure is part of this most recent grant.

    ps: For those wanting to search for the documentation themselves, the FCC incorrectly listed the callsign of D10 as S2461 (it should be S2641).

    For those who aren't interested in sparring with the the FCC database search engine: http://licensing.fcc.gov/myibfs/download.do?attachment_key=820319

    So seems there will be at minimum a week, their waiver of 25.208(c) becomes effective on June 9.

    Where did you get that? Not being aggressive, just wondering which doc states that?

    Unfortunately though it seems there is nothing about the specific "amelioration" process itself which requires any sort of special authorization from the FCC.

    I was hoping there would be since such an STA request from DirecTV might list some of the actual details of the corrective procedure being applied for D10's spotbeams.

    That seems about right. Need some time before the testing.

    Paragraph 9. DirecTV says that some tests will exceed limits for up to 10-15 seconds at a time. If they need a waiver of the rule to do those particular tests, it seems that the waiver isn't effective until the 9th. It's about the only part of the paragraph I could begin to understand :)

    Numbered Paragraph 4 of the Grant attachment. . . will we have visibility of those communications?

    Usually I'd say no, but in this case the answer might be yes, based on the "in writing" clause and some of the recent communication. We'll see ...
