I pray this bird gets off the ground and operating properly. It is the only way people in HI/AK will get more HD channels. We still only get 8 while the rest of the country has a whole lot more. If it explodes, I may end up switching to Direct TV. Does anyone know when it is scheduled to launch?

Without having to run around, what is Galaxy 18 going to do? What is the scheduled launch date of E11.

Turn around has been something like 6 weeks to 2 months so it will probably launch in July

But no one was home, and the FedEx guy took it back to the garage. They can pick it up after 6pm. ;)

The FedEx guy is trying his hardest to figure out what all the parts that fell out of the box are for.

Nice merged logos. Who would have thunk back in 1996 when the put Echostar I into service that they would be working on Echostar XI now?
