Quick Question,

I haven't been able to find this online.

Which DirecTV sat gives me my locals. Specifically WWMT Channel 3 (CBS) and WXMI Fox Channel 17 (FOX).

I live in Kalamazoo, MI.

If anyway knows the sats, or a website that would tell me that would be awesome.

Thanks,
J.D.

If you are speaking of the SD local feed at the 101 orbital location, you are probably getting your locals via a "spotbeam" from DirecTV 4S. Spotbeams cover only small geographical areas so transponder frequencies can be reused in different parts of the country. This is why you probably couldn't get your (current) locals if you packed up your equipment and moved it somewhere else in the country.
