FCC has accepted the filing for moving E8 to 77 (filing meets tech/legal requirements). The next FCC action should be approval of application.

Below is the FCC website address related to this filing that has the narrative of what Dish wants to do with E-8 at 77 W:


This second FCC filing only requests permission to move E-8 from 110 W to 77W. One would think that a Public Notice should be posted for the second before the first but I believe the approval process for the first takes longer than the second since actually providing programming may have major interference issues associated with it while just moving a satellite only has minor interference issues. This is based on what happen for the E-6 satellite at 72.7 W.
