Over the past week, noticed that 101W went thru some changes. Several cable channels had unencrypted audio-only (including Fox News and Fox Business) and these have disappeared.

Anyone have info on where those channels went?

I am still able to get, on 101W, some "radio" channels like Radio Netherlands in several languages.

But I re-positioned my dish to 97W (my dish is not motorized) and the variety there is enough to satisfy my interest in FTA.

We had some good weather here last week, so I re-installed my Ku dish.
I had trouble finding Galaxy-19 (bigger tree since last time, blocking it intermittently) and kept hitting SES-1. I was really surprised at how little was on there now. I kept looking back at my older print-out from Lyngsat, and wondering what I was actually pointed at.
Not much there now.
