Thanks JL. The maps are kind of neat.
Hawaii having spots on 2 sat's is also interesting.
Not yet. The data I'm reading is (apparently) accepted space plans. The newest plan for our region was filed in November last year (D*'s new satellite at 101). Before that was D*'s 72.5 filing in June 2004 and D*'s 110 filing in April 2004. The E* filings listed earlier in this thread were from 2002.
ERROR: SP01 on 119 is an oddball shooting at nothing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The maps I have checked don't show an island there. Hawaii's only real spotbeam is SP15 on 110 (TP 4).
I miskeyed a number in the original posting of the list. Hawaii does have two spotbeams - 119 SP01 and 119 SP12.
was no need to call him crazy JL, - "You are wrong" would do fine also in that particular case
Rainbow 1 has 22 spots and 130 (one hundred and thirty) possible spotbeams on 12 transponder frequencies. Or they can cover each of those transponders in CONUS mode.
D* satellites also seem to have a higher concentration of spots and spot beams. When one is low on bandwidth, one has to use it more effectively.
The reports on E10 say it has 45 spots ... and no one has been able to prove if that is 45 spotbeams total or 45 spots with more than 45 available spotbeams. That's why we seek the ITU filing to see what it can do. I should have done the E7 and E8 maps earlier ... it would have taken the surprise out of some recent events. :sure:
So, if Dallas is on 110 TP 8 Spot 6 (according to the Tony's Channel Chart & LyngSat), how is that possible with the above listing that spot 6 is for Des Moines, IA (which Tony has as 110 TP 10 spot 7)?
Please note the statement in the original post:
(Note: Spot numbers come from ITU filings, not previous spot maps. Maps are based on the CENTER given in the filing. Spots may be bigger than the map shown.)
I've attached pictures of all three satellite maps based on the ITU filings.
TNGTony, feel free to use them on your site.
Thanks for the updates JL. Great work! I don't have time to update the maps and charts this weekend, but it will be done in the near future.
To answer the question about the spot beam maps on the EKB, they are many years old and were published by Rabbi French on his web page as I stated on the EKB. I also have a link to the original web site. He granted me permission to copy his page. The Channel Chart uses the spot beam numbers on the Rabbi's maps which at the time they were published, were correct AFAIK. As you all know, things change! I will update all the information as time permits.
I did some more digging at the ITU and found the pending queue. E-10 is not in it at the moment.
USABSS-19 and USABSS-24 ... minor adjustments at 101 (D*) set to be effective June 25th.
USABSS-20 ... E*'s filing for 157 (effective 10-15-2012) - AK / HI / USA
USABSS-21 ... more changes at 101 (D*) effective 9-27-2012.
USABSS-22 ... "Rainbow 4" at 166 (effective 9-1-2010) - AK / HI / USA
USABSS-23 ... "Rainbow 5" at 175 (effective 9-1-2010) - AK / HI / USA
CAN-BSS7 ... at 129 (effective 12-25-2012) - AK/HI and two steerable US/CAN downlink beams.
The distant effective dates seem to be mostly placekeepers telling the ITU that there will be a satellite there by that date.
