    Standing there alone
    the sat is waiting
    all systems are go
    are you sure?
    DBS is not convinced
    but the mods
    has the evidence
    "no need to abort"
    the countdown starts

    watching in a trance
    Boeing is certain
    nothing left to chance
    all is working
    trying to relax
    up in the uplink
    "send me up a drink"
    jokes Major Tom (Robertson)
    the count goes on

    4 3 2 1
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    calling calling home...

    second stage is cut
    we're now in orbit
    solar array up
    running perfect
    starting to collect
    requested HD
    what will it effect
    when all is done
    thinks Major Tom

    back at DBS
    there is a problem
    go to rockets full
    not responding
    "hello Major Tom
    are you receiving
    turn the thrusters on
    Sixto's standing by"
    there's no reply

    4 3 2 1
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    calling calling home...

    across the stratosphere
    a final message
    "give TravelHD my love"
    then nothing more

    far beneath the sat
    the forum is mourning
    they don't realize
    D12's alive
    no one understands
    but Major Tom sees
    now the life commands
    this is my home
    I'm coming home

    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    coming home...
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    coming home...
    Earth below us
    drifting falling
    floating weightless
    coming coming home...
    home.....

    Given the trustworthiness of the people who say D12 is fine, and the fact that there were ZERO REASONS to believe D12 was anything OTHER than fine, I simply laughed anytime I came into this thread to read "the sky is falling posts", and sometime today, I too changed my avatar to Chicken Little in order to shine a light on the worry-warts residing in this thread.

    However, since that time, new information has come to my attention. That information is that DirecTV intends to offer HD-LIL to the Albany, GA DMA.

    This information has convinced me of two things. One, that Hell has frozen over (I knew getting snow this year was a sign of things to come), and two, D12 has been completely destroyed and the TLEs we've been seeing are for the wreckage of what once was D12. :D:p:D

    I'm also convinced that the rest of the DirecTV satellite fleet will now self-destruct, and that DirecTV will finally roll out Albany, GA HD-LIL in another 12 years.... if the end of the world doesn't happen in 2012.

    I haven't checked in on this thread in awhile.

    Can anyone tell me the status of D12?

    Its dilithium crystals have deteriorated and need molecular regeneration.

    The STA extension for testing at 76 W expires on April 19, is that when it'll start drifting?

    Didn't Chicken Little end up being RIGHT in that movie? There was a problem and he was the hero saved the day?
    Is calling the D12 doubters Chicken Little some coded way of saying "yes, you're right - there is a problem"? :D

    (Nah, I don't think so ... but conspiracy theories can be so much fun.)

    Perhaps some graphical representation of station keeping will tell you something.
    Particular point of interest - what changed after March 1st ?

    For reference: E14 during IOT keep gap's deviation in a range 4-7 km. As D12 did same from Feb,12 to March, 1st.

    Whose mean? Tom's mean? Do you need his mean?
    I think he left it around here somewhere ...

    (Or did you mean "You're mean!" ?)
