    Did you read the entire thread? Obviously not. It's explained pretty well. That other thread was just started yesterday so we didn't need another thread.

    :(bviously yes! I just wondering what is to become of AMC-2. That means this thread is totally different from the other, so don't go marching to the admin to lock it.

    Beans. AMC2 is still alive and providing ALL service from 105°. The movement last night was in preparation for either adding more channels or for movement to AMC15. As the other thread (http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=42856) states, nothing moved to AMC 15

    Hope that helps.

    See ya

    E*, please don't add anything to AMC-2. It is nearly full now.

    As of last nights changes, E* has two transponders at just about half full (TP 1 with 6 channels and TP 22 with 7 channels) and most transponders at 9 - 12. Without splitting markets (more than they already are) E* needs that space to have a free TP to test on.

    No free TP yet but move Chattanooga from 1 to 21, Macon from 21 to 14 (leaving 21 full at 12 channels) and 7271-7272-7737-7845 to 3 (leaving 14 full at 12 channels and filling 3). Ta Da ... E* has an empty TP to use for testing.

    There are a few other combinations that would free a TP, but adding channels now would lose that opportunity. I'd like to see E* test AMC-15 with 16 channels on a transponder before unleashing that on us customers.

    When AMC-2 becomes no longer needed at 105 West, SES Americom has requested permission to move it back to 85 West, mostly to provide Cband service there as it did before it moved to 105 West.

    Well, you didn't ask that! You asked "what's up with the local channel swapping" and "what's going on with AMC-2 and AMC-15," not "what's going to happen to AMC-2 afterwards." If you don't ask the right question, no one can give you the right answer. Your original question, as asked, is not different. Now that you have CHANGED your question, it's a different thread.

    Huh? No one said anything about a receiver. I guess that means I have to try and post in the "XXX started testing..." threads. :D

    It comes down to if you want to spend your time picking on the small things or discussing satellite service. :D

    I don't care if it is receiver or reciever. I'm not reading forums to learn spelling.

    :lol: I wasn't in a bad mood. Just explained to the OP the problem with his duplicate thread. The only one getting upset was the OP.
