No one's posted this, so I guess we're slacking off. Directv's application to launch and operate Directv 14 for the 99ºW slot was granted, as of 10 days ago. http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws...=V_SITE_ANTENNA_FREQ.file_numberC/File+Number (Apologies in advance if the URL gets fubar'd. The FCC's website is NOT link-friendly). You can click the "Other Filings" link on the page and get the actual FCC grant document. There are interesting tidbits buried inside - for instance, it confirms that Directv 14 and Directv RB-1 (already authorized BSS bird) will be separate payloads on the same physical spacecraft at 99.235ºW. It also requires that Directv 14 be on-station and operational prior to the end of service of Spaceway 2, else the authorization is voided. I found that an intriguing requirement - is SW2 in danger of early failure? Is Directv planning to move it? Hmm.
