As of 6/16/2010, the corrective procedure ("amelioration") on D10 is complete.

As of 6/27/2010, D10 is now back at it's original location and transmitting all of the national HD that it had previously.

D10/D12 News (5/7/2010):

"DirecTV 10 is currently operating at the 102.815° orbital location. As DirecTV has previously informed the Commission, that satellite suffered a post launch anomaly that has limited the capacity available in certain local markets. DirecTV believes that it can ameliorate this condition, but will need to discontinue commercial service from the satellite and relocate it slightly so that it is not within the cluster of it's other operational satellites. Accordingly, DirecTV intends to move DirecTV 10 to the 102.6° position to conduct the restorative procedure. During this migration, DirecTV 10 will continue to provide service to subscribers. However, over the course of this migration, DirecTV intends to transfer all traffic from DirecTV 10 to DirecTV 12, DirecTV's newest satellite which has just completed in-orbit testing and is expected to arrive at the nominal 103° location on or about May 11, 2010. At the conclusion of the STA period, the satellite will be in a position for the corrective procedure to be attempted."

GREAT news in the long term.

In summary:
  • DirecTV-12 is VERY healthy :)
  • DirecTV-10 has had an issue with it's spot beams since September 2007
  • DirecTV now believes that they may have a method to correct the spot beam issue with D10
  • All D10 traffic will be moved to D12, and the corrective action will be attempted on D10
  • If all goes well, we'll have both a healthy D12, and a newly repaired and healthy D10!


That, my friend, is AWESOME!!

Way to go DirecTV & Boeing.... I love it when a plan comes together!

Now here's to hoping the repair process works... if it doesn't, we're no worse off for trying... and if it does work, then we're in even better shape!

In the short term, it should be noted that as Sixto stated elsewhere, D12 has 2 more CONUS transponders than D10...so off loading D10's national HD's will still leave space on D12 for about 10 national HD channels to be launched prior to D10 moving back and lighting back up for service.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had a fix ready for a long time and that they were waiting for D12 to light up and take its off it's load. But anyways this is great news.

The drift is going to be a few tenths of a degree - around a 100 miles. There won't be much time to watch. :)

It will be kinda fun to watch this process unfold. Cue up the signal meters.

Whatever the issue is, they feel like they now know how to fix it.

Speculation: and they may have even tested it on D12 during the past few months.
