This thread is (mostly) for talk, informed speculation and FCC filings regarding the Directv satellite constellation itself - modulation schemes are really kind of secondary to that, except the to extent that it affects overall working bandwidth and load-balancing around the fleet.
I guess what I'm asking is that the modulation rate is completely independent of the bird going up.. correct? It can be changed at a moments notice?
So with that being said, I was curious if the new birds had better signal to noise and perhaps more power output that could, with more reliability sustain a higher order modulation while maintaining target rain fade and signal loss specifications.
