A-band (Ka-hi) and B-band (Ka-Lo). D10 is Ka-lo - 103(cb). D12 is Ka-hi - 103(ca).

Just checked, my lowest transponder is now 86, which is an improvement from the mid 70 I had as my low last night.

Most solid signal levels to date with D12.

Even transponder 19 is solid.

WOO HOO!

What about 103 (cb) ? Are they OK ?


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"

Those kinds of readings on either 103 (ca) or (cb) are way too low. You certainly are a dish alignment candidate - if you call customer service, and have the DirecTV protection plan, they will do this at no charge.

Installers will tell you that you should be 90 or higher on average with the 103 sat signal levels, to assure solid reception of the HD content coming from that area.

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.
