Where is Boeing official statement ?


http://boeing.mediar...?s=43&item=1208

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., May 17, 2010 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] today announced that it has completed the on-orbit handover of the DIRECTV 12 satellite. DIRECTV will use the Boeing 702HP satellite to provide high-definition television (HDTV) broadcasting to local and national markets throughout the United States.

"Boeing is proud to continue its delivery of highly capable satellites that enable DIRECTV to expand its channel offering," said Craig Cooning, vice president and general manager of Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems. "This marks the 10th satellite provided to DIRECTV by Boeing."

DIRECTV 12 launched into orbit on Dec. 28 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan aboard an International Launch Services Proton M rocket. Now that Boeing has completed the orbital maneuvers and checkout procedures necessary for the handover, the satellite will be monitored and controlled for DIRECTV by Intelsat.

Boeing manufactured DIRECTV 12 at its satellite integration and test complex in El Segundo. The satellite's powerful payload integrates 90 active and 24 spare Ka-band transponders. Its antenna receives and transmits digital programming throughout the United States with two Ka-band reflectors that each measure 2.8 meters in diameter, and nine smaller Ka-band reflectors.

A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is one of the world's largest defense, space and security businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world's largest and most versatile manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a $34 billion business with 68,000 employees worldwide.

So, we did it -- D12 is parked and operational, this thread has reached 10,000+ posts and 1,000,000+ views.

Nothing to do now except sit back and enjoy all the new HD this year.

D12s journey and this thread has been a fun ride.

Thanks to all those that have contributed.

We're not finished yet ! Now we see only modulated signal's level, but there are no stream/muxes.

After first real channel will come up the thread could rest in peace, but now we have plenty to do - watch how D12 really coming to us. CHANNELS !

My readings on the 103 (ca) are quite different from several reports here:

-With the exception of all zeros this morning, the numbers never changed since day 1. Few transponders high 80s , most 70s and 2 below 60. It looks like there was an improvement for most people here but not for me.

- My 103 (cb) has always been high 90s. All other satellites always high 90s. If I get great numbers on 103 (cb), shouldn't I get the same with 103 (ca) ?

I live in a MDU MFH2 building and any change on the dish must be requested by the board. Since I am probably the only resident who cares about it, I wonder if I should wait a bit more or ask the management to call the MDU company.

5 points average increase in readings on 103(ca) since yesterday (05/16/2010). Nice!

Not really. Numbers in high 30s and low 40s

to recap: 103 (ca) is low to mid 30s

Am I going to have to call for a "tweak"


I just checked mine and a friend's in Roy. All in the 80's with a couple of low 90's. Yes, you'll need a tweak.

Cheers,
Tom

That does seem odd. I wonder how old that dish gear is, and if that has an impact. Multi-residential unit dishes probably get upraded/tweaked much more slowly than single-family residential units, on average.

The other thing I can think is the dish is pointed to the outside of 103°(cb) away from 103°(ca) by just enough to have one very nice and one low. If the dish were pointed between the two, both would then be very nice. (And likely not affect the others much.

I'd suggest a call to the board to have them empower you or for them to call for a tweak.

Good luck,
Tom

Whatever the issue with TP19 was, it seems to be addressed. I've got two straight lines of 95s and 96s on 103ca today. Very pretty to see, actually. :)

It does seem peculiar that Directv is adding New Markets to include SD (all in MPEG4 i might add) and letting about 17SD only markets active right now languish for years without upgrade to HD.:(

I'm not going to despair that Fargo is missing. I'm thinking a bunch more will pop up after the D10 repair is successfully completed.

Technically the 3% they are referring to are the 38 DMA's that will not have ANY Directv LIL coverage. #1 on that list is DMA#138 Monroe, LA.

94 or 95% of the country will have HD LIL.

You are in the "tweener" 2 or 3 % with SD and no HD.

15 of the 17 "tweener" DMA's get SD LIL's on 119.
That can't be a coincidence but can't explaine the "future plans". ?BSS??

I'm in the Dallas area and I've be getting in the 40-60 range. I've also had problems with a few channels that die around lunch time and come back in the evening. I have an MRV upgrage scheduled for tomorrow and the csr swore that I will get a new dish and not just a SWM-8. Hope this fixes my problem or they will be back for a tweak. Just trying to save D* a truck roll, but hope the csr is correct and this fixes everything in one go. He seemed more switched on that a lot of reps.

Thanks to Sixto and please get some rest (so you are refreshed for the D14 thread).

Thanks.

I called to see if I could get them to just send the truck (I am on the protection plan), but they wanted to do some troubleshooting with cabling etc. I was at work so I have to call back when I get home.

Indeed...if you have the protection plan....dish alignment is included for free. Its not unusual that they'll check your cables as well on the same visit.
