Wow! Even the EKB charts aren't that far behind!

They left out that Alexandria comes from 129° and requires an 8PSK-capable receiver (111, 311, 522/625, or any from the HD line).

Lima also comes from 129° but can be gotten with any receiver.

(and it seems my PR subscription has been dropped again. grrr)

I admit... it was a weird press release to see today, when it refers to things that happened back in June/August!

According to Dish, those were released on August 19th. I remember seeing those a long time ago.

When I looked at that page yesterday, the PRs in the OP were dated 11/4 and there was nothing for 8/19 where they are now. I also thought it was deja vu, but don't find any other PR thread with Alexandria or Lima in the title.

Maybe someone at the Web site goofed? They were there yesterday... but today they are no longer there under 11/4.

I'll close this thread since we know it is old news... but it was weird to see a "new" press release that wasn't new after all.
