Btw. . .AM-21 arrived today, hooked up, works great, all is good with the world.
Sort of PM type post ... irrelevant for the thread.
Have added the D10 Drift link to post#1:http://licensing.fcc.gov/myibfs/download.do?attachment_key=817066
Another process step addressed....things moving ahead (pun intended).
One significant open item, is when will the "procedure" start. It seems like 6/14 might be worst case, but maybe it can be sooner, maybe.
We'll know more after the next STA filing and/or after we see D10 get to 102.6 and understand when every D10 channel is offloaded.
It seems like the first half (move/offload/ameliorate) may be the longest leg, much longer then getting D10 back a couple of tenths of a degree and starting up some new HD, assuming that the "new" HD is going on D10.
If the fix is quick (7-10 days), and starts 6/14, maybe we can see D10 light up by the end of June.
so june for 30 and they when for 40 that are left?
Let's hope for the first 30 in Q2 first.
Does the more Local HD come with the first 30?
Hopefully D12 has more capability for LiL then D10, and LiL comes soon, but have no idea.
Tomorrow's public notice:On May 12, 2010, the Satellite Division granted, with conditions, the request of DIRECTV Enterprises, LLC for special temporary authority, for a period of 30 days, commencing on May 14, 2010, to conduct telemetry, tracking, and telecommand operations with the DIRECTV 10 space station during a drift of the space station from the 102.815º W.L. orbital location to the 102.6º W.L. orbital location. DIRECTV is authorized to provide commercial service to its subscribers during the drift of the DIRECTV 10 space station from the 102.815º W.L. orbital location to the 102.6º W.L. orbital location, and at the 102.6º W.L. orbital location, while DIRECTV transfers all customer traffic from the DIRECTV 10 space station to the DIRECTV 12 space station.
Interesting. Thanks for posting this notice, Sixto.
More good news.
How does the remapping from one sat to another say happen during a broadcast? Signal sent down from the sats to all receivers to look at another TP? Can the recivers do that while tuned to a channel that is being remapped?
Not sure if it's related but the 'Letterman' show just left the planet with a 'No need to call us' banner around 12:20. . .Local channel 3.
OTA 3.1 is fine. . .
Again, not sure it's related to the move but had to tune away from 3 and back to it after a couple of blank screens. . . it's fine now.
In the last day or so I have started to see a lot of 771 messages. I looked up the first dozen (202,207,212,215,216,229,231,241,242,244,247,248 all HD) and according to Lyngsat they are all on DirecTV 10. Could this move be the cause of my problems? Is there anything I can do about it?
There has not been any confirmation of any movement of D10.
Post#1 always has D10's latest location, per the latest data available.
Perhaps someone try to steal your antenna.
As to mapping those channels - DTV often shuffle channels, so check latest assignments here, look into gct's tables and Sixto's dedicated thread.
No movement as of 12n ET today.
Will try to keep post#1 up-to-date but trying to take a break from the 24x7 TLE monitoring.
I wonder if we'll have gaps in TLEs from NORAD during the drift, similar to what we've seen with the bigger drifts for D10, D11 and D12.
