But then...some in the KGB spoke English quite well too....:lol:
WTF do you care about his "claim"? Your apparent dubiousness is thoroughly misplaced, as usual.
The ISS has U.S., Russian, European and Japanese segments, as well as a very complicated, highly-capable external robotics system supplied by Canada. The very first element launched was Zarya, a Russian-built, U.S.-paid for element that provided power, reboost and control in the early stages of construction. That's what the "I" stands for, you know? "International." For a space news site such as NSF, having a native Russian speaker who's familiar with Soviet/Russian space history and operations makes a lot of sense.
Unlike, say, a Dish Network subscriber who spends all his time nay-saying and passing himself off as an expert in a Directv forum.
If his "claim" is true, then he's much more than an author as some have suggested. More than a couple here seem to think that they know who anik is (and they may be right).
On the other hand, I'm thinking his job is what he says it is and he and lives where he says he lives while others seem content to suggest that he's not being truthful about either.
Then, as expected, you come along and suggest that because you think that I don't suffer DIRECTV, I must obviously be wrong about who anik is and how credible his information might be.
It has nothing to do with you not suffering Directv, it has to do with your attitude in general. IOW, why do you care about Directv or it's issues when you don't subscribe to them. Some of us here already have an opinion on that matter.
I believe Mr. Lefty was asking why do you care (as Dish subscriber) in his first sentence....the rest is just in response to the specific data.
I have friends and associates who subscribe (and sometimes suffer) and I try to keep them up-to-date. Going to DIRECTV for help hasn't been all that satisfying for several of them.
There's indeed another reason and some of it has to do with the amount of misinformation that I perceive to be presented. Admittedly some of it has come from my lack of understanding of certain aspects but my average isn't all that bad. Presenting my "facts" and showing the math allows the thinking reader to develop their own opinions about the efficacy of the information.
The fact that I often get a verbal beat-down for a reasoned opinion is something I've learned to live with.
Playing the poor, misunderstood martyr card? Good job. :lol:
The problem is, you don't KNOW the math to show. :nono:
When I had C-Band there were two satellites named Anik-1 and Anik-2. The name could have come from those.
I think you would be surprised just how much math I know.
It could have, but it didn't.
I forgot to post this link earlier.
I think that goes without saying.
Am retired military. I once worked with an Air Force Colonel who said, concerning my confrontation with another associate,: "Howard, when you argue with a fool, no one knows which one is the fool". And so be it with those who argue with HARSH. Who really cares what he says on this forum? If we don't keep replying to his postings, eventually he will get disgusted and quietly go away into the future of his beloved DISH.
Army football sux.
Bingo, this thread is about D12. It’s not about the self proclaimed supposed experts. BFD who knows more. The bottom line, we’re all waiting for D12. I’ll be happy once we see a launch date. I’m sick of seeing TBD. :nono2:
Hello, DBSTalk.Com forums members!
It was very fun previous page about "who is anik?", "where is anik living?" and "anik is Anatoly Zak?" But I think it is enough to discuss me in this useful thread.
I am not Anatoly Zak. I live in Moscow. As all of you, I have many sources, which help me to update plan with launch dates. They can be wrong, but I am trying to filter their information.
I have not current information about DirecTV 12 launch date. The latest what I have heard on October 9th that in December besides Proton-M launch with three Glonass-M satellites there will be one more Proton-M launch. It can be commercial or Russian military launch (with doubts), but I have supposed it will be launch with DirecTV 12, because all other commercial satellites were already postponed to next year.
Your insight and thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Enjoy following your posts at nasaspaceflight.
Thanks for the post!
You've done great work, thanks for coming here too.
Man this site just gets better and better . Nice work Lefty, Sixto and the rest of the gang. Welcome Anik also!
Well that's answers that.
