    AIUI, the new 99ca signal screen for D14, at least in it's initial appearance of just 10 xpndrs, is only visible on those receivers running "other firmware."

    While apparently the preparation process to display the future 99ca has triggered the erroneous display of xpndrs 15-20 on the 99c/cb signal screens of receivers running NR firmware.

    Confusing situation at the moment. ...

    DATA stream today confirm some movement on D14
    The TPN table has 18 (9x2) new entries. It does skip the first pair left polarized channel (40 MHz spaced channels)

    I have no clue what this means but is some of the activity we've been expecting.

    I've sent the data to the "brains" for analysis. I just collect it :)

    At first glance it sounds like it's related to the RDBS band which xpndr payload is 18 with 9 RHCP and 9 LHCP....

    Nope, all IFs are the same as for Ka-Hi D12 tpns, plus same SR=30M,A3/QPSK and FEC 2/3 for the new tpns..
    Somehow missed tpn#12, perhaps after amelioration it will be up ;) (may be it's on but not in SI tables yet) with other 4 or six [21...24 and 9/10]

    Seeing 18 new entries makes perfect sense. 16 new tpns for CONUS Ka hi, 2 new tpns for Ka hi spot beams - currently 99s shows tpns 1-6 for SW2, D14 will allow using the full set of 1-8. That fits in perfectly with doctor j's "skip" because the 62.5 MHz tpns for SW2 don't line up with the standard 36 MHz tpns D14 is using. D14 spot beam tpns 5-6 are the only ones that aren't covered by SW2; 1-4 and 7-8 are.

    Ah OK, guess they are still working out the kinks or won't be enabling all the new transponders at once for some reason.

    I'm sure they fire it up fully when they are ready.

    It's supposed to go live on the 20th according to the other site.

    Wonder why it is going live with only 7 of 16 transponders at first, and such a seemingly random assortment of them? I get that they don't have 16 transponders worth of stuff lined up so they don't need them all, but it seems strange.

    Anyone remember if they ever did anything like this when they lit up D10, D11 or D12?

    I thought it was 9 CONUS xpndrs active for 99ca at last report?

    Also, another individual I know who can see D14's signals on one of his boxes recently reported in, well let's just say "another forum" here, that he's now seeing xpndrs 7 and 8 along with 1-6 on 99s active as well.

    So apparently, at least some of D14's spotbeams are active too.

    Again, for folks who don't already have it (which are still most I gather). Mainly look for 99(ca) to appear among the signal level screens.

    And if you have 99(ca) you "may" also now show xpndrs 7 and 8 as active along with the previous numbers 1-6 and 15-24 on the 99(s) screen from D14's spotbeam payload going active as well.

    All other readings such as the ones above are not relavent to the issue.
