Anyone have a good reference site that contains the new E14 Coverage map (i.e. new 119 satellite)? Anyone know what the different color contour antenna size equivalents are? I think the smallest contour is for an 18 inch equivalent antenna.

I've been using SatBeams for the past month or so (since I saw it mentioned in a thread).

http://satbeams.com/...tes?norad=36499 for E-14.
Click on the beam you want to look at to get a map then zoom in and click on your location to get an estimate of dish size, if the size is needed.

Wow, exactly what I was looking for. It appears the E14 satellite is much more powerful than the older E7 for 119, except for spot beams, which control the territory covered much tighter and have lower power it would seem. Thanks

E-10 also has spots dedicated to Cuba (although most are set to mirror Puerto Rico content if the Cuba spot is activated).

Plan ahead, just in case the embargo is lifted.
