    It would be interesting to see the other moves. There are several spotbeams on 119° that will be empty or at least have enough space for a market. Any markets in the original retailer list to be moved on April 19th or May 5th that doesn't appear on that detailed list are likely to end up on 119°.

    E* seems to be taking the "one dish" rule VERY seriously. It doesn't appear that markets will be split between 119° and 110° as originally thought. That calls into question the markets with locals split on 129°.
    They may have set the date that far out to allow for a resolution with D*. All of the 27/29/31 moves are on May 5th.

    From the "this took a while" department. I've attached another one of my maps. This one is all the spotbeams in the US that have a Transponder 12. I have shaded in the markets that have at least one channel moving to a TP12 spotbeam by May 5th (most channels are already there). (Market->County information based on the Echostar Knowledge Base.)

    A few things to note from the map:
    The contours I chose from the FCC filing were the -6dB ... they seemed to fit nicely on the map. However several markets do not fit entirely within their spot. The portions outside the contour would receive less than -6dB ... customers would probably still get a signal, but it is "fringe".
    Denver's locals in Johnson and Campbell counties (s30) in Wyoming are a prime example of this ... way outside, and in fact, close enough to another spotbeam (s36) where E* plans to use TP12 that customers there probably would have trouble getting the signal.
    A better use is shown in Michigan and Kentucky. Note that in s13 several markets in Michigan have channels and in overlapping s10 two markets in Kentucky and Tennesee have channels. This is less of a problem as the area where these two spots overlap is far outside the markets being served.

    I've also attached an update to the earlier e10spots.pdf document. The label for s25 was found to be missing (as well as the offshore spots).

    Enjoy!

    Here are a couple more files ...

    Not all of these will be on tonight, but I've attached the drawings for spotbeams using transponders 4 and 25 ... in honor of E10 lighting up some of these transponders tonight!

    OK people .. i was in a hurry yesturday... and provided somewhat inaccurate information and the date about those Portuguise (and Pakistani as well) channels.. to be moved / added .. or whatever to the wings .. from 121..
    Sorry about this...

    So that there is no other discrepancy.. i guess i ll have to quote word for word what they / he (Eric) said about those :)
    Here it goes...
    So the bottom line, Mauky IS - for now you ARE definatly safe with your ethnic programming with your SuperDISH at your present, 121 orbital location ;)

    Sorry, again, for inaccurate information that i provided yesturday... :sure:

    Hi guys. From a Satellite newby (but tech geek) to you Satellite Guru's, thanks for all the work on E10....

    Quick question, has anything been written or implied as to what services will be provided on the E10 transponder for Alaska? I believe its t46.

    I would hope that some core HD programming could make its way over to 119 or on t46.

    THANKS!

    They have way too many channels listed on TID 2575.

    EDIT: Extra channels are Significantly viewed duplicates.

    Juneau and Fairbanks locals on May 5. Nothing else listed at this time. Keep in mind that this is a transition and that for the most part new stuff is not listed or of concern as the law looms..

    Looks as if what I thought may happen, some smaller DMA's (and I didnt thing Providence would be one of them, may move over to 61 if they are in the Northeast, similar to how there are DMAs like that on 148...

    There's a LOT of money involved if they tick off congress. Seems to me they're going down to the one satellite level as best they can to placate the bureaucrats who brought the ruling to bear.

    A more safe than sorry scenario it seems.
