    thanks for the reply. i'm just trying to think of credible events that would cause the delay (besides ransom for the release of alien hostages)...doing my own research through the FCC's licensing portal i came across those pending applications.

    How do you figure that...maybe just being contrary I guess. :rolleyes:

    I’m confident (not that what I think counts for much :grin:) and the rest of us “fanboys”, “DirecTV shills”, “DirecTV apologists”, “Kool-Aid drinkers” seem pretty confident too. Some people just aren’t listening or maybe choosing to listen to doom prophecies. :D

    More to the topic, how much variance in a TLE for a geostationary object can one expect? I’m assuming that what we’ve seen so far is within tolerance? I’m guessing but it seems that the type of satellite would come into play in what is an allowable variance. :)

    Not so bad yourself, but I think Stuart's the uncontested (contested?) winner!

    If another extension wasn't approved, then I think it would just sit there until DirecTV filed something with the FCC. They wouldn't be authorized for any Earth to Space or Space to Earth testing, just station keeping.

    So we have heard at least a thousand times that everything is good, everything is going as planned - (I guess according to the most recent plan?) seeing how D12 was supposed to be a ground spare wasn't it?

    I am not saying there is anything catastrophically wrong but at the same time I am willing to bet (say $100.00) that after is all said and done we find out there were issues. (maybe similar to D10).

    Any Takers?

    No, just an observation. The fanboys are no longer posting the "everything is fine" and Doug and others are now just joking with the "D11 is fine" on their signatures. Can be just a joke (I hope so) or an easy way to say "we no longer know if everything is fine".

    If we have 100% of people here just cheering, there is no discussion, there is no opinion, there is no guesses, there is no forum at all. Is that what you suggest ? :eek2:

    My take is there is something wrong but not enough to be considered a disaster. We will know , one way or the other, in few days.

    Uh-Oh. Non carbonated artificially flavored beverages have now been mentioned. Normally this signals the end of a thread. :D

    Well, SOME slimy SOB has already dropped the "F-Bomb" and no one's shut the thread down. :grin:

    Uh, what is a fanboy of D12? Wouldn't that pretty much be every single person visiting this thread? It's a satellite. I'd think non-fanboys would simply steer clear because it's boring technical stuff.

    although the past couple of weeks have diverted more towards a lot of antsy behavior

    My sig stills stands :p

    My guess is that each time they consult their magic eighht ball, is says "Reply hazy, try again later". Sometime in the next few days, they will realize that the problem is actually with the eight ball, get a new one, it will say "Signs point to yes" and off they go!
