Just for fun
Geo orbit, ie R: ~22.000 miles
One round at the orbit L: ~138160 miles (2p*R)
One degree diff: d: ~380 miles
.15 of this ~ 57 miles
.05 of 1 degree ~19 miles
Now tell me again about 'debries' or 'blocking signals'
The Dish Network "AMC 16 & EchoStar" is also in the 119 slot.
The FFC has to keep track of possible interference with other communications. The azimuth offset between the three LNBFs is fixed on the receive dish--pan one to the left or right, you pan them all. Declination can be adjusted to match the arc and therefore align that somewhat independantly, but not AZ/EL.
Geo orbit is 23,000 miles=60 miles movement.
Many people are reporting poor reception from this bird via D* service.
I don't have the answer as to why they are requesting to move it, unless
they have discovered after the fact that the multi sat dishes were actually designed for 119.05 originally.(just a thought not factual statement). A move
beyond what they requested, would degrade reception, not improve it as they
have stated the move would do. (they would have to realign everone's dish,
an expensive result)
