I had a problem with 129. Had second dish installed for 61.5. We are supposed to get our locals in HD soon (Youngstown, OH ) I was wondering if I will be able to receive them on 61.5 .

It will all depend on what sat E* decides to place them. I'd say it's likely it will be on 61.5 but one never really knows.
No longer doing DBS work, but missing every moment of it.

Youngstown was uplinked to 129° on 2/11 so will likely remain there.

Don't know what the problem with 129 was, but it may be solved now with the new satellite being online.
