And FYI, the slot is 77 degrees and the other two eastern arc satellites are at 72.7 and 61.5 degrees. A dish 1000.4 or 1000.5 is used to receive the eastern arc satellites.

Whoever told you that gave you incomplete information. Indeed, Dish is in the process of converting to an "Eastern Arc" for customers in areas in the East. Three satellites are involved 61.5°, 72.7°, and 77°. Do a search in the Dish threads for thread titles including "Eastern Arc".
