Which Transponder/Satellite Are Locals Coming in On? Also, Need Footprint Map..
Posted 14 November 2012 - 05:37 PM
I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to find a "footprint" map of local markets. I need to know the Little Rock, AR markets and the Baton Rouge, LA local market footprint areas. Is there a link somewhere that shows this? What sat/transponder does DirecTV send locals through? TIA.
I'd like to add that I did take a look at a thread on here that utilized Google Earth, but it didn't show what I was looking for.

Also, you want to look at the first post, from gct for the transponder map, then for the footprint look at GCT'S posts as well, starting with the first post.

See below attached screen shot on the Little Rock local market. How do I use that info. to find the broadcast footprint?

So, there's no way to find their footprint?
No, you're not doing anything wrong. Those HD locals aren't on DirecTV-12, so there is no data for them.

As per my post :
An approximation can be obtained.
Baton Rouge is A1B5
Use the D-12 map (Houston). Mentally move the center about 200 miles NE and that is the Baton Rouge spotbeam for D-11
Little Rock is A2B8
Use the D-12 map (Dallas). Same exercise, Move the center pin approximately 200 miles NE and the contours are for Little Rock AK.
Not exact but the best we have, and gives reasonable guess at reception.
Thanks for your interest.
Hope this helps:)
