Pictures from SeaLaunch Commander make 350K IPTV look great.
A beautiful sight. --- sitting on the launch pad.
FYI, it's showing up in my EPG at 1:00am (I assume they moved it).
I was able to find it using keyword search "launch". Nothing else showed up when I used that keyword
Hmm ... last night I set a DVR event for it at 12:30am tonight. Glad I have "name based recording"
There appears to be some rumors from another site that there are some communication problems with the launch vehicle. Nothing confirmed yet. If I see something else I will post.
Thank you I have my timer set and +1 James on the name based recording.
Can you please provide source?
I hope Echostar 11 does not have a near miss with AMC 14 LOL !:lol:
Is Trisha Takanawa narrating this launch? :lol:
Looks like a good launch ... Spacecraft Acquisition was at 2:31am ET.
Yeah, waiting on it to provide more signal for the Uplink Reports.
Kinda surprised it was a night launch ... I figured it would be at least dusk.
But a launch is a launch ... Go Echostar 11!
So much for THAT rumor.
Yeah, too bad the E2 rumor was 100% true. :nono2:
Check out the coverage on Spaceflight Now
Am I wrong, or is this really simply a replacement sat, adding little capacity??
This makes little or no impact on ability to significantly increase mpeg4 hd offerings......
Yes. Things are pretty crowded in that slot, so it doesn't add much capacity to the 110W slot. It is more powerful, so it does add some capacity by requiring less error correction overhead.
Not correct. This frees up E8 (which has spotbeams that aren't being used) to serve up HD content as part of the "Eastern Arc". E11 also has much better coverage for AK and HI than E8.
BUT, currently the number of subscribers that have 61.5 is NOT the majority...therefore dish would NOT put new NATIONAL HD's on 61.5.
so when you think the sat would be on 110 orbit and start to uplink channels?, 2 months?
thanks in advanced
