    I agree on the 4 letter interpretation of those 2 pages :);)

    I do have one question, what kind of 9.2 meter antenna cost millions of dollars???

    Especially since they're sending the signals, not receiving them. :lol:

    My company's (a large fortune 500 one) IT department only officially supports IE6 still for in-company use. Seems it's a major effort to vet/updgrade the bazillion company apps everytime IE is upgraded.

    This will be my last post on IE so as not to keep the thread going off topic.

    If your company's IT department had written their apps to be standards compliant instead of IE6 compliant, they wouldn't have that problem.

    Hope to see a final end to the ridiculous bickering and positioning games played with the FCC on this.

    D12 seems to be continuing on track for testing, and then final location position maneuvers.

    Thanks for the updates Sixto and Lefty.

    In other words, "Spectrum Five - STFU!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I still don't think they're gonna win on their petition for reconsideration with regard to the full RB-2 platform but it'll be interesting to watch play out.

    As required by FCC rules and the authorizations, D12 will be parked at 76ºW for testing on or about February 15. When it is in position, Directv must notify the FCC. Upon every instance of testing the RB-2A BSS payload, it must notify Echostar to ensure there is no interference with their signals (that is part of the grant from today).

    :)

    The letter was very good and descriptive:
    1) Spectrum 5 will not be an injured party, so the FCC can ignore their "informal petition" if they want.
    2) The FCC chose to comment
    3) A satellite ain't as easily tested as Spectrum 5 contends (like they'd know with their huge fleet of nada!) :)
    4) Spectrum 5 hasn't made a case whereby preventing testing indefinitely does any good and the FCC already knows testing is not done in a normal configuration.
    5) Therefore, DIRECTV is granted. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    At some point, likely already long passed, Spectrum 5 should have backed off a bit. Fighting every minor, stupid nit does not endear with the convening authority. It tends to piss them off, nullifying all claims... :)
