    The issue before was that the TLE interpreter I was using (Orbitron) was giving incorrect results. Predict doesn't seem to have that problem.

    I never bought into the argument that TLEs weren't mathematical models but were instead a instantaneous snapshot.

    So the moon is made of cheese?

    Don't worry about the location of DirecTV 14. If there was a problem They'll let you know.
    Michael White has you on speed dial, doesn't he? :rolleyes:

    This may be another huge reason we haven't seen much from d14 yet. They waited to start doing things with it till it had its own earth station licensed.. Oh the logic in that! :lol:

    Anyone know how easy and seamless it is to change an earth station while a sat is on air vs changing what sat a channel comes from?

    No I wanted to see the entire tv screen to see the rest of what was on screen.

    I've been wondering about this Moxee license. I guess they can't do RDBS uplinks where they do Ku uplinks, since the Earth stations all indicate they receive the downlinks for everything they uplink. I assume that's to verify quality and perhaps feed back some pre-distortion on the uplinks to make up for atmospheric conditions or small defects in the linearity of individual TWTAs? Can't receive a clean RDBS downlink in the neighborhood of a big dish doing a Ku uplink since it is the same frequency (those living close enough to any Earth station uplinking Ku that they can see the dish may wish to rethink their hopes of signing up for Directv's 4K)

    But that's only for RDBS. Is there any reason they wouldn't uplink D14's Ka hi from LABC and Castle Rock like they do everything else? Obviously Moxee needs to be capable of uplinking Ka to D14 - it has LiL and Moxee is one of the regional sites that uplinks locals. I doubt it is uplinking CONUS though.

    I think it is more likely the license for Moxee to uplink to D14 signals the imminent lighting up of D14's spot beams.

    Not sure what you mean here slice;

    D14 has four uplink locations for Ka-hi programming. LABC, CRBC, NWUF, and SWUF and/or from any of these primary facilities' associated diversity sites.

    The Ka CONUS+ programming as usual comes first from the LABC (And/or it's diversity site, the CBC in Long Beach, CA.) with Castle Rock as a backup.

    The Ka transmission to D14 from the new earth station at Moxee is only for TT&C.

    The TLE represents the orbital model that is used and it appears that the day 92 model was errant. The day 93 model shows it in the box.

    So your information was wrong and irrelevant. Back to on topic posts.

    Plus what happens if you go back one screen and look at the signal strength of all the transponders at once? I think that's just a glitch...

    I am in the Seattle area. Has the transmitter strength increased on d14?
    Due to trees my 99s and 99cb signals have always been low. Today i checked and all the 99cb transponders jumped up by about 15.
    When I look now at 99s all transponders start off showing N/A. Not the N/A or -- that used to show. then after being scanned the strength for the transponders show. signal strength has increased on the also.

    D14 is 99ca, not 99cb. If your 99cb strength increased then either a branch fell off the tree or the wind fixed the aim of your dish :)

    Well actually the 99cb or 99c screens of the current NR firmwares have the CONUS xpndr levels from D11 and D14 strangely conflated.

    Where xpndrs 1-14 are from D11 as is normal, but xpndrs 15-24, with 22 and 24 as N/A and 21 and 23 as 0, are coming from D14. Which means D14's readings are only partial with its other presently active xpndrs 11, 13, and 14 hidden by the overlap with D11's same numbers.

    But you are right that none of this would account for the previous poster's suddenly higher signal level readings.

    Since he said 99cb instead of 99c I assume he's running newer firmware. They've started pushing out NR firmware on H2x/HR2x recently that includes 99ca/99cb.
