The attachments to this post cover all DIRECTV Channels and Transponders, CONUS (Continental US or National beams) and LIL (Local Into Local or Spot beams). The data also includes all the OTA (over the air) channel information.

The single Excel document provides all the CONUS, LIL and OTA data for DIRECTV Satellites at the 72.5W, 95W, 99W, 101W, 103W, 110W and 119W positions.

Two supplemental documents are also provided:

  • A Network-Market-DMA Networklist cross-reference sheet. This information is particularly useful in understanding the LIL data. This document is current with the 2010 DMA rank assignments by Nielsen.

  • A Network Decoder map showing the satellites and transponders graphically as they appear on your receiver's signal strength display.
All documents are fully unprotected so you may copy and use the data as you wish.

Once again, we all owe a round of thanks to Doctor J for capturing all this data.

This month's TPN Map is a new approach, providing just a single Excel .xls file with all the CONUS, LIL and OTA data. We're at that point where Excel is the only way to effectively deal with 7,300 lines of channel information. Sorry, but if you are not familiar with Excel, it's time to bite the bullet and get onboard.

I've taken the time to automate the process so I can go from raw data to a final Excel file in less than 15 minutes. I think that is important because with D12 on the horizon, it will be great for us to provide a weekly or more frequent look at the changes that are taking place.

As always, your input and suggestions are very important!

Just a note for anyone who doesn't want to spend the money for Microsoft Excel:

The Open Office Suite of programs handles Excel files perfectly and it is free for the download. It does everything (and more) that uSoft Office does. I've been using it for several years with no problems.
