Did I miss the discussion elsewhere that DIRECTV had withdrawn all 3 of their applications for the 97 KA orbital slot.

Hughes and INMARSAT HAWAII still have 3 applications each pending.

Am I the only one that finds it funny that they seem to have a refund process like that of say JC Pennys, and that it should take no more than 10 days? :lol:

Interesting. I suspect that they are giving up on these because they figure if they can get their core 3 spots going with ka, ku and bss they wont need any other spots. Of course, they don't have that yet, so do they know something we don't? Or had they only done that in case BSS testing proved to be futile and they would need to abandon BSS but have decided since BSS is definetly doable, they don't need the 97 any more? All interesting stuff to speculate on.

Maybe they couldn't figure out how to put two Ka feed horns so close together on a pizza-sized dish?

It was cancelled. I think it was a replacement for D5, but cancelled several years ago, before 2009 I believe.

Yeah ...

DIRECTV-13 (designated call letters "S2693") was originally to be a Ku-band satellite replacement for DIRECTV-5, but was canceled by DIRECTV back in Nov. of '07 due to future interference concerns from the FCC's application grants of Ku-band "DBS tweener" slots a 114.5 (Spectrum 5) and 105.5 (to SES Americom).

When the D14 sat is up in running will I have to get a new satellite with more lnb or will it be on a different tuner on a already using satellite.

It will probably be in the 103 degrees position so no new equipment will be necessary.

Everything known, speculated and thought to be known about Directv 14 (and all future sats, plus anything that changes with current sats), is usually talked about here:

http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=179580

There's a lot of material here, but it's a good thread to subscribe to. Those of us who update it tend to pay absurdly close attention to things like FCC filings, Directv financial reports and ITU regulatory rulings. :grin:

I think it should be in the 99 degrees position, not 103.

Then we will all drool for weeks as it obtains orbit, gets parked, the first signals are detected from it, the receivers finally show it on the signal screen.... Then everyone goes "Aw Crap" when they add 250 new PPV channels on it :)

I'd be more excited by the new signals showing up on the screen than by the new 250 PPV channels. :D:D:D:D

That's not necessarily true. We don't really know yet if a new lnb will be needed, as this sat also appears to be loaded with a bss payload, and if that's used for regular national channels as well, we will likely need new lnb's and possible new swims as well. If that happens, DirecTV would have to foot the bill for that, so we will see.

Hey those shopping channels help keep our bills from going higher, and SD doesn't take a lot of bandwidth.

PPV channels can be used as placeholders as well.
